I know what the law is, but here is my situation in a nutshell:
My boyfriend is currently 17 and (until today) has been living with me since early June '07, with his parents knowledge and consent (they never came to get him knowing where I live this whole time). I'm 24. He turns 18 in May but (out of the blue) his parents suddenly think I'm some kind of threat and have been threatening me with legal action if he doesn't come home to them. We knew the law and how cold and hard it can be, so they forced our hand and now he's home.
Florida has pretty much no emancipation laws so there's no help there. And his parents are blowing up about everything, they even called his boss and had him fired, and had him switched out of his music classes in school, and just since he's been home today they now want him to cut his hair and shave.
His parents are the types to ruin someone just out of spite or malice, and I'm worried that that's just what they'll do. Am I just plain screwed or are there holes in their case since they let him live with me for almost 9 months?
