In Oregon how can your aunt get legal custody of you if you are depressed living at home but your dad won't let you move in with her?
She would need to file a guardianship petition in probate court
in the county where the minor lives. An investigation would be done
of both the father and the aunt's home by the state's department of
family services. The investigating social worker would interview
family members, neighbors, teachers, etc. If the investigation
found the minor child was being neglected and/or abused the case
would be referred to the court for further action. That could mean
the minor and the custodial parent would be required to attend
counseling sessions; or the aunt would be awarded temporary or
permanent guardianship; or the minor would be made a ward of the
state and placed in a group or foster home, another relative's home
or whatever the court believed to be the most appropriate.
