My question involves child abuse or neglect in the State of: West Virginia
I have a friend who is 35 mother of two. Her one son is about 10 years old and has an extreme case of autism. Her other son is 14 and as Aspberger but functions fine. She met a man offline about 5 years ago and he moved her and her family to PA from WV. He became abusive to her and even to her kids and PA Social Services became involved and she asked me to come pick her up. I drove up there to get her and gave her room and board in my home till she found her own place. Come to find out, she had another online man waiting for her to move home to WV but once she made the move, he stopped talking to her.
Well an apartment became available and her children and herself moved in. She continued to talk to people online and she asked me for Greyhound money to buy a ticket for a man. I told her absolutely not and that he could be a child molester or anything. Well somehow he was on his way to WV from TX and got caught in FL by the police and there was a charge of child molestation against him and he was out running the law!!
Just this January, she had another man move in to her apartment with her and her kids. He came from Missouri with just a motorcycle and whatever luggage he could bring on it. I told her that was odd. One day she gave him money to go pay the rent and he ran off with the money and has never been seen of again!
NOW THIS WEEKEND she has another man sat up to come from KS to WV to meet and asked me to watch her kids this weekend. Originally I thought, wow, she got smart about this and is taking the right steps to ensure her kids safety. Turns out if the weekend goes good, MONDAY she will be moving to KS with him and taking her children!!
Her oldest son (14) don't want to go! What legal right can I have for him to keep him out of what could be a bad situation? I would offer to house the 10 year old autistic boy too but he physically harmed my children while staying with me in the past and he is more than I could ever handle.
