I live with my dad because I'm pregnant and the father lives here. My mother lives in Louisiana. My parents have joint custody, but my mother is my domicilerary parent. If I have copies of my parent's custody agreement, and her stating permission for me to live with my boyfriend/ father of my soon to be born child, what would happen if my father called the police ?
I want to move in with my boyfriend because my fathers house is unhealthy, and unsafe for me, especially me being pregnant. My father and stepmother are both very heavy smokers inside, as well as heavy drinkers who get violent toward me. They've both threatened to hit me multiple times & actually have a couple. The baby will be living with his father because I refuse to let my dad and stepmom ruin his health.Could the police make me go back to my dad's ? Could my boyfriend's parents get in trouble ? (I'd be living with my boyfriend and his parents. They've already agreed they just don't want to be in trouble with the law.)
The simplest, fastest, and least expensive solution: have your mother sign a Power of Attorney for Medical/Educational/Other Decisionmaking over to your boyfriend's parents. It means that they can have you all the time that your mother could in the SAPCR (custody orders) your parents have for you. If your father takes them to court, he may be able to get you back from them, though. Which is not the best solution, if you have zero desire to be there, because you can just walk out again; plus if he takes them to court, judge gets to hear bad stuff about him, too, so it might be enough.
Another option is if your boyfriends parents get to be conservators of you, to have "joint custody" with your parents. This is probably the best option for you, but not fast or cheap.
Hm, you may be a candidate to get "emancipated" (aka have "disabilities of minority" removed). Judges don't like to do this, but you may have enough.
Some of what a judge would do about the above depends on your individual circumstances, how bad the dad/step-mom violence is versus how great your boyfriend's parents are.
