Your friends parents would have to contact a family law attorney in Ohio and discuss the possibilities. Generally, if your mother objects, you would have to show that what was going on in your home rose to the level of abuse, abandonment or neglect.

You definitely need to contact a local attorney. If you are 16 or over, your wishes will have a lot of sway with the Court, however, you have a high burden to overcome since it is presumed your mother is your best guardian. However, that being said, if she has neglected you, is moving in with a boyfriend and is otherwise unfit as a parent, then there is potential. One of your biggest hurdles may be the cost involved. I'm sorry you are going through such a tough time.
