    Default How Do My Girlfriend and I Get Out of an Abusive Home

    My question involves child abuse or neglect in the State of: Louisiana my girlfriend who turned 18 yesterday was in an mentally abusive household which we got her out of. We came to stay with my uncle his wife and their three children because we had nowhere else to go. I previously resided here when i was 15 and my uncle physically and mentally abused me daily, after getting tired of seeing the bruises and broken bones my mom (who does not have custody of me) got me out of this home. Now I'm back here with my girlfriend she is 18 and I am 17 my 18th birthday is in two months. My uncle has started to threaten me recently I'm becoming really afraid again. We both tried to get a job but he will not let us get one because we have to raise his three children. I need a way out if anybody has any advice or knows of any programs that can help us please reply. This is urgent I'm afraid he will seriously hurt me or my girlfriend please help!

    for your girlfriend:

    she gets up, walks to the door, opens it, walks through and keeps going.

    For you: who has actual custody of you? Go to their home.

    In two months you're going to be all grown up and you can walk out the door and move in with your girlfriend in her new home.

    if your father has legal custody of you, he has no choice but to provide for you.

    No kidding.

    You go to a household where you were abused and take your gf with you because that is the only place you can go where they will let you live with the gf. I guess you either put up with it or realize that some things are more important than being able to hit it every night. You chose this situation.

    like Mr. K said: when you turn 18, go live wherever you want to go.

    Your girlfriend is 18. She can walk out any time she wants to.

    You are not 18. Therefore you live where your parent or legal guardian says you live.

    but cbg, they can't live together then. Don't you have any compassion for a young couple in love?

    Your GF is 18. She can get a job if she wants one. Your uncle has no authority to stop her. She simply walks out the door when it's time for her to go to work. If he attempts to stop her, she calls the police. It's really that simple. She's not responsible for his kids.

    the whole reason we are here is so we can be together we don't want to seperate.
