Depending on whether the older adult agrees that the treatment is abusive, then you can take action with them on the phone or call an agency on their behalf. The web link for the National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA)should lead you to a local resource. It is difficult to manage this when you are an outsider, but it seems like all of us depend on our community to protect and support us. There have actually been a few postings regarding adult children abusing a parent or an elderly parent. Could you please just post under this and give me a little more information as to what your problem is. Example: What is the adult child doing to you? Have to called the police? If we can have a little more information we can certainly help you. Thanks

When can a child petition the court be place in someone else custody in Delaware?

A child cannot petition the court, they need an adult advocate or agency to help. If the child is being abused, neglected, or endangered they should speak with a trusted adult: teacher, friend's parent, relative, etc. They could be helped by Child Protective Services but that may end up with the child being placed in foster care.

What do you do if youre abused at home and nobody will listen?

First contact the police. From there, you should contact your state's department of child and family services if you are a child or if there is a child being abused in the home. If you are an adult and there are no children in the home, you can start with a local domestic violence project if you need help getting out. Or you can just leave.
