I am the guardian of a 161/2 year old girl originally from Florida. Her mother gave her willingly up to me and my wife. We went through the MA court and have full legal guardianship until the age of 18. She has lived with us for a year.
Her family is having problems in Florida. Her mother has issues (which is why this girl moved in with us). She has a younger brother and an older sister. She feels that she has to go back to Florida to help her siblings but wants her mother to have no control or say in her life.
I have 2 questions. If she becomes emancipated in Massachusetts (with our help and consent as guardians) will the State of Florida recognize it if she moves back there? If she just goes back to Florida can she go through the process there since her mother has already legally consented to give her up.
