My granddaughter is very unhappy living with her mother and stepfather. She wants to live with me. She is not pregnant nor does she have a baby

She is 17 and a court of law in California would allow her to address the the court. I do not know about the laws in your state. But I believe the most direct route would be to discuss it with her parents and avoid court. If she is in actual danger get her out now and call an attorney.
