I am 17 years old and will be 18 in 3 weeks. I was kicked out of my guardians home via text messages. I kept a record of them as proof in case I need it to justify the actions of what I did. I only spent one night at my friends house and returned home the next day. I was asked to return home because a case worker got involved. The case worker told my guardian that she can press charges on my friend's parents, and now she is threatening me that she will do it out of revenge of my actions. I only haven't informed the case worker of the text messages because I know it will hurt the career of my guardian because she is in social worker services, and I wanted to avoid foster care.
