Legal Answers
Q. Can I get emancipated from a family that's abusive without legal consent from my parents? I'm 16
A: The quick answer: you are on your way. You usually have to complete your high school education and show that you have provided for yourself and can continue to provide for yourself for at least 6 months before you can be emancipated.
Q. Can proctor parents legally open their child's mail if their child is no longer a minor?
A: It depends. Generally speaking, without any other information regarding your friend's situation. Do the proctor parents have a custody or guardianship order? If they do, they likely have a right to open your friend's mail and may have a right to control his finances. Also, if they have such an order, your friend should have his own attorney that he can reach out to in order to request help with this issue. The Court, by law, is to enter custody/guardianship orders that are the least restrictive of the protected person while keeping the person safe physically and financially. Of course, consultation with an experienced, qualified attorney for specific legal advice is the best way to get specific advice on your friend's situation.
Q. I’m not on the birth certificate and I haven’t taken a paternity test and I don’t want to be apart of it what can I do ?
A: You are not required to spend any time with the child. As for child support, unfortunately you can only wait for the other shoe to drop or deal with the issue definitively. If you want to simply deal with the issue, you can obtain a paternity test; there are various ways to make this happen. If you are the natural father, when the time comes, you can agree to the child being adopted. Otherwise, the other parent can, at any time, seek to obligate you to pay child support. You should, of course, seek the advice of an experienced family law attorney to get legal advice specific for your situation.
