My question involves juvenile law in the State of: West Virginia
My sons girlfriend is 17 and they have a child together. She is wanting to move out but is being threatened on being charged as a runaway by her parents. If she were to move in with us, could we be appointed as a legal guardian (if so do you parents have to sign consent) or is she considered emancipated since she has a child. Her parents are making things very difficult, they wont let my sons side of the family see the baby. If she cannot emancipate herself is there anything that gives us rights as grandparents.
