My question involves criminal law for the state of: Virginia
Good afternoon. I was posting to inquire about whether or not a 16 year old who ran away at age 15 can NOT be forced to go home or into foster care and what they can do to not go home but to get a job and support themselves so that they qualify for emancipation.
If they are a runaway in the middle of their probation at 15 (gone for almost a year) now aged 16 years old with child can they get emancipated? There is no way to know if that person is clear to get a job or their credentials without being forced to be sent back home or to a foster center. They have safe living conditions for themselves and baby until they get a job and have anough to support themselves financially. (Also have boyfriend working for money at the moment.)
*Their probation was due to threatening with a fake gun and possession of tobacco was also a first time violation of probation*
