My question involves guardianship in the State of: California
my friend who is 16 is wanting to get emancipated. She has no mother her father has control and anger issues. She has tried to get him to let her live with her grandmother but he refuses. Her step mother has had some major issues with the law. Now they are married and her father seems to push my friend and her sister aside in favor of the new wife and her children. He is sometimes physically abusive aswell. He has thrown her against a wall for talking back before and has choked her aswell. She wants to know what her options are regarding emancipation. She doesnt have a job but her grandmother would be willing to support her and give her a place to live. She needs to get out of the house because she fears for her safety. It would be great If you could give her some options. Maybe emancipation isnt what we are looking for, maybe its something like her grandmother taking full custody if thats even possible. that would probably be the best situation.
