If a parent cannot control a teenager can they give up custody of the teenager to the state?
So long as they are under the age of 18, then yes you can. But why would anyone want to put their own child into care! It may be a long hard road but there are plenty of organisations out there to help. So long as they are under the age of 18, yes you can. But there are plenty of organisations out there that could help. It can be a long hard slog but I would rather get all the help I could than to put a child of mine into care.

Answer . What I'm finding in Texas State Law is that you can't legally just throw a teenager out of your house without first pursuing legal action. Legal action includes re…porting your child, especially in cases where the teen threatens physical harm to a family member. It's a multi-step process but if you keep your wits about you and stay calm you can make this happen legally. Eventually what happens is that your child would enter the juvenile detention system in worst-case scenarios. The other options include letting your child live with a friend or other family member, marriage, or military service. Personally, I'm pursuing the latter of those options. I don't care for my son to be raised outside of a structured environment other than my home or the military. I know the rest of my family does not want him living at their homes because he can be very disrespectful and now with his physical size there is no "making him do something" under physical duress. He will live by my rules in my home or he will live in the military under their rules if he wants to leave sooner. If he runs away, which I really hope he doesn't as he really doesn't understand how hard life can be, he is in for a big awakening, and not one that a parent wants for their child. Additional Information: The best way for a parent to legally handle their unruly teen is to pay a school that has a reputation for supervising them properly. This could be a military academy or a private school that specializes in unruly teens. There are programs that are covered under some insurance plans.
The guidelines are basically the same in every state but obviously there are a few minor differences. Joint custody consists of Primary Custody & Secondary Custody. The parent… with primary custody is who the child lives with & the other parent has secondary custody. Depending on the age of the child & the state in which they reside, the court may let them determine where they choose to live. Or if both parents agree on the child's decision then the child can live with either parent.
Answer . \nIf legal custody has been established by court order, the grandparent(s) should file a Petition For Relinquishment in the Juvenile Court of the county or city o…f residence. Some states require the custodial person(s) to attend counseling in an attempt to resolve the family problems before a petition can is filed. If the custody was given arbitrarily by the parent(s) without use of legal procedures the parent(s) are still financially and legally responsible for the minor and should be notified that the child is to returned to their custody. If this is not possible, the grandparent(s) may ask the juvenile court to make the minor child a ward of the state if no other relative is willing to accept the responsibility.
Custody Rage . A lot actually. You may not notice it but a lot of the time parents are arguing constantly all around the world about who gets the kid/kids. Now there are mo…re "civilized" parents out there that can keep there anger down or just talk it over. A lot of the time a parent walks out of the kids life/ family's life because of a spous's argument or because they are just being jerks. But just remember that this is not your fault that they are leaving nor that they are fighting.\nLexi Cameron
In Colorado what can a custodial parent do when a teenage child wants to live with non custodial parent?
Answer . First, check out the logic of the child's "want." Does it make sense to you and your ex for this to happen? Could the other parent be more appropriate for day-to-da…y raising of a teenager? For example, common wisdom is that if the child is a teenage boy, it might be for the best for him to go to Dad. However, if the child wants to move because of disagreement with household rules, both parents may want to come to an agreement that, come what may, the move will be permanent. Allowing a child to use the non-custodial parent as an escape to problems regarding rules, schooling and so on, may result in "flip-flopping" households whenever an issue comes up. And, these issues will come up regardless of where the child lives, because that is the territory with teenagers. Of course, if there were issues with the non-custodial parent to begin with, then those will need to be added to the equation. In my personal life, I had to leave teenagers in Texas when I moved to Arizona. It was their choice, but they knew there was room in Arizona. The household I left them to was not the best; however there was just 4 years left until college and it was, in many ways, a short term decision. I missed them, but they are now in their twenties, and are doing well.
Im trying to find out the same thing that's how i came across this. Mines living elsewhere but im still legally responsible. So now all I get is calls when medication, groceri…es and toiletries are needed. I get called when she gets in trouble with that law. shes been terrorizing me for 2 years. On probation for hitting me and has run away 15 times, been kicked out of her school and put in an alternative school. Pierced her face up, alreada has a tatoo (she jsut turned 15) calls CPS on me OMG Im at my wits end. I can not do it anymore. Im so tired of being angry and hurting that Ive contemplated taking my own life. Sometimes you have to do what you have to do for your own sanity!
No he will have to wait till he is 21 years old and a full adult.
the parent in possession at the time.
This is a good question. Depends on the country you are in. What can you do is: a) to find out the reason to what happened, just ask, and keep your eyes and your EARS open an…d don't onject to what you hear. Be patient. b) Educate, teach both your kind AND your self! Teenagers suffer a huge hormonal shift which can cause them to go out of control - this is normal and will last only a couple of years. Be patient and try to understand and establish new trust and information link with the kid. When teenagers are maturing they discover things they don't tell you about. If you want access to such information, you need to gain new trust; but keep your authority, you're the adult. c) Mild physical punishment may be appropriate in some occasions. But NEVER do that in anger and only because of a specific reason, not because someone made you mad. (It helps the dreamer to snap out of his daydreaming of invincibility)
yes they can anywhere
Yes, just as they can be forced to go to school, the doctor, to bed, etc. One of the roles of being a good parent is teaching children what is in their best interest, even if …they don't think so. See link below
very good. i Agree
Probably to show them that they think the teenager is mature enough to have an allowance.
A parent cannot simply abandon their child, however in most cases they can voluntarily relinquish parental rights provided that adequate alternative care (such as a relative w…illing to take the child or someone willing to adopt them) is available.
really all you can do is keep a close eye on them, spend lots of family time with them, and make sure they dont drink and do drugs
If you by teen means 18, yes since they are then emancipated. But not younger than 18, that is illegal. You are obligated to care for your children until they are 18yo.
