What is the law about a relationship with a minor in California?
Is a consensual relationship with a minor legal?
No, it is not. A sexual relationship with a minor is illegal. It is legally impossible for a relationship with someone under the age of consent to be "consensual". A minor, or a child (because that is how the law regards them) cannot consent to sex. If there is an age limit for minor in your state that is older than the age of consent, then a sexual relationship with a minor over the age of consent is legal.
What charges can be brought against an adult for dating a minor in California?
If the parents/guardians of the minor object, they may place a charge of "harassment" or 'stalking' against you or may even file a restraining order to prevent your dating. As far as the law is concerned it's not so much the "dating" part of the relationship is concerned, as it is the possiblity of of a sexual relationship. The consequences for an adult engaging in sex with a minor (whether the minor consent or not) is SERIOUS.

Asked in Relationships, Marriage
Why is the woman your brother married called your sister-in-law?
The term "in-law" is used to indicate someone who is "related" by law rather than by blood. Since marriage is a legal relationship (whether by common law or canon law) rather than a blood relationship, the term "in-law" is used. The term "in-law" comes from canon law (as opposed to common law). Canon law is law that governs the conduct of a faith's membership. In this case, the term refers to a relationship that is "not natural," that is, not by blood. So, your in-laws are granted a relationship that is between having no relationship and having blood relationship to you. Anyone of a blood relationship on the "in-law" side of the relationship are also considered your in-laws (father-in-law, son-in-law, etc.).

Is it against the law for a 16 yr old girl and a 30 yr old man to be in a relationship?
Well yea and no. It is not illegal to be in a relationship but if it is a sextual relationship then yes. That is because the girl is a minor and a minor having sex with an dult is called stagitory rape. Even if it is willing the adult can be charged and sent to prison and more than likely be sued by the girl's parents for all sorts of things. So if the relationship is not sextual than is is frowned upon but it isn't exactly breaking the law. Sexual raltaionships are illegal though.

Where find the act of emacipation of california?
Emancipation As children enter their teen years and gain more independence from parents, both may have questions regarding the process, legal requirements and consequences of emancipation. Emancipation is a legal way for children to become adults before they turn eighteen. Under California law, a minor may be emancipated by a court declaration of emancipation under the Emancipation of Minors Law , which provides that a person is an emancipated minor if they fulfill one of these three categories: The minor has gotten married with permission from parents and the court. The minor has joined the armed forces with permission from parents. The minor has received a declaration of emancipation from a judge. California law states in order to get a declaration of emancipation from a judge, the minor have to prove ALL of the following criteria. The minor must be at least 14 years old, the minor must not want live with their parents and the parents do not mind if the minor moves out, the minor can handle their own money, the minor is employed and has a legal way to make money. Once a minor is emancipated, his or her parents don't have custody or control of him or her anymore and they can do some things without parental permission, including: get medical care, apply for a work permit, and sign up for school or college. However, an emancipated minor must go to school, must get parental permission before getting married, and will go to juvenile court if they break the law. For more general information on emancipation,contact the Judicial Council of California.
