A friend knows of a 17 year old girl who is living on her own because her father is an ass.
Apparently, he's done raising her (her mom left when she was little). She's getting through high school, will be 18 in august, is living at a friend's house. I think she should take him to court, but the worry is that the DSS (Dept of Social Services) would put her in a home is she raised a blip on the radar.
Does anyone have any idea how the DSS works? Is there a way for her to be legally on her own at 17 and take her dad to court?
