I ran away from tn,I am 17 my mothers boyfriend is abusive and we felt it best to get our 2 month old daughter away from them.I am now in florida and want to give custody to my daughters father who is 18 before my mother forces me back to tn. How can I give him legal custody where she can stay in fl with him until I am 18 ? we have tried to contact welfare and my mother lied and said her boyfriend had moved out.I fear for us when we are there and I really need help . We don't know what to do .they are saying if we both come back to tn that I can do the paper up there but I am scared it is a trap and really don't want my daughter going back . It is a dangerous household and I know my mother will put us on lock down if I ever go back with her . Please help ! Can I sign guardianship over ?
