Best Answer

You have two options. One is to sign guardianship papers so that the adult person he would be living with would have temporary guardianship over him. The other is to allow him to become emancipated which means, he would become a lagal adult. This has to be proven to the judge before he will grant emancipation and, both types of paperwork can be obtained at your local courthouse. The proof that the judge will look for will be: Cooking, paying his own bills haveing a joc, cleaning his own living quarters, basically being able to maintain life without having you around.

Just been on holiday with your spouse but spent a lot of the time thinking about and missing someone else what does this mean?

We all 'miss' someone now and again. My advice to you were to be, to live life in the moment. If you are not in love with the person, move on. Where is this person you are thinking about? Unavailable? Why are you wasting your time thinking of somebody else, who may not be thinking of you? Don't live in fantasy, live in reality.
