The law allows a parent(s) to give temporary custody (3 months or less) to a family relative or qualified adult caregiver. The parent(s) must give written notarized permission for the child/children to reside with the other person(s). This authorization should include all issues pertaining to the care of the child.Specific dates for the change of residency to begin and end. Permission for the child/children to receive medical and dental care. Permission for the child/children to be enrolled, or continue in school (if applicable). Terms for the payment of financial support. And any other necessary stipulations pertaining to the individual child/children that is needed. The parent(s) must also keep regular weekly contact with the child/children and the adult caregiver. Even if this is done in the correct way, there is no guarantee that state social services will not intervene if there are problems. Any term longer than three (3) months must be handled through the prescribed legal guidelines of the state of residency.

This depends on where you live.You must check with your local authorities, but normally at the age of 18 you are no longer legally binded to your parents.Apart from you being their offspring.You could probably move if you wanted to. They can't do anything by law to keep you there.

Can parents charge other adults because their child wants to move in with them?

I don't think so. In order for the child to legally move out of their parents home they would have to request emancipation which would leave them independent and the parents wouldn't be obligated to pay child support.Now if the child was ordered by Family Court to move to another location because the parents posed a threat to the safety and/or well being of said child... Then they could be ordered to pay child support.Look at it this way, children that don't like the rules and curfews that their parents present to them will find comfort in another family that will let that child do anything. Now if the child could get money from their parents and move to a non disciplinary enviorment they would. The biological parents would have no control over the well being of their child. And some money sucking, jobless adult would love to have this child...For a price.I'm Not an attorney and this is what I believe to be correct. If you have a legal problem you should consult an attorney.Another viewA minor child who has not been emancipated can only move out of his/her parents' home with parental or court permission. What the child wants is legally irrelevant. If the parents agree to allow the child to move in with another adult, it is up to the parents and the new guardian to come to an agreement for the financial support of the child. For example, if the child goes to live with a family member in another city so that he/she can attend a school in that area, the parents would normally agree to pay for school expenses and a monthly maintenance for the child. However, if a parent agrees to leave a child with a family member because of dire financial problems, drug problems, safety problems, etc, the new guardian would typically agree to absorb the costs involved in raising the child.However, if the agreement calls for the guardian to pay the parents, this could be construed as selling the child, and would be a felony.If the child is removed from the parents by the state, the state has the right and responsibility to seek child support payments from the parents in order the recoup the expenses of care.

What is the difference between bullying and child abuse?

Bullying is not limited to just hitting another member of your family. Bullying is a learned behavior. Normally the bully has seen another member of their family use bullying to enforce their will over another person. It is an imbalance of power between two people. Technically, it could happen between members of the same family. But it is most often between two unrelated people when one feels the need to enforce their will over a weaker person.

How were you born if you have two mothers?

You were born of a woman, the one who carried you through gestation. You may be the biological child of that woman or of another woman. It could be argued that either is your mother. Additionally, in marriages or permanent relationships between two women, if they have a child, the child could be said to have two mothers. And it is possible that either or neither(!) woman carried or is a biological parent of the child. Only that they are legally adoptive parents.
