A person who is under the legal age of majority which in most states is 18, cannot file a lawsuit for any reason. An adult who can be defined as an "interested party" (such as grandparents) may take legal actions on the minors behalf. It would not apply in this case, as the mother is an adult and unless the minor is neglected (lack of shelter, food, clothing,living in a dangerous environment, etc.) or being physically abused, there are not grounds for legal action. If the minor child is experiencing any of the referred to situations they should contact DSS/DFS in the city or county in which they are living. Or they may wish to contact National Child Abuse Hotline 1-800-392-3738 or for general information and assistance, 1-800-442-4453. Said minor might also wish to visit the Teenline Online website; an organizaion for teens and staffed by teens to discuss and advise, in confidence, any issues the teen has,
