I don't believe the statute has an age requirement so I guess she can try it. If you're worried about him you can hire a lawyer on his behalf.

Yes, a 10 year old could have an OFP entered against them, although I'd be hard pressed to see a judge doing that. I'm not sure what you mean by, "does that mean she can't come back home" - who are you referring to there?
