I have a friend who is getting abused by her jarhead dad. He's threatening to put her in foster care, but in the meanwhile, hes beating the hell out of her while she's at home. I want to get her some help. We live in Florida, so I researched emancipation and it has to be done by the parent/legal guardian. Does anyone have any other way around that we can help get her out without causing problems. I've been in foster care and I realize how long the investigations take, especially since the DCF where I live doesn't do crap. If anyone has any ideas please let us know a.s.a.p. It is greatly appreciated.
