Hi, I am pretty girl, and I live in the state of Virginia. I have recently filed a petition for emancipation and was staying with my father. My mom is my custodial parent, but my father has joint custody with her. I was wondering how would I be able to stay with my father, while I am waiting for the precedings of my emancipation petition to go through? If my mom calls the police and come to my father's house, do I have to go with her? I don't feel safe at her home anymore and I just want to stay with my father. If I don't stay with my father, where can I stay without my mother being able to call the police and get them to make me go home with her?
