When in foster care who handle legal affairs?
Most likely the state and the social worker might help with it if needed. but it is the Legal Guardian that takes care of it.

because your parent or legal guardian is no longer able to take care of you. child services may take you to a foster home or any other formation of foster care. you could also be taken by another relative. your parent or legal guardian could give you away (adoption) if they don't want you or they feel like they are no longer able to take care of you.
Can a minor request to live with a friend and their legal parent instead of foster care in a abusive situation?
They aren't the same. Adoption is becoming the legal parent and foster care means the state is the childs guardian. The state makes all important decisions regarding the child and the foster parents have no rights, the state can just come in and move the child to another foster home for no reason. Adopted children are yours forever.
If my friend moves out of foster care at the age of sixteen to live with a friend and then the friend decides after a while not to let her stay there will my friend still be under foster care?
I think this depends on if the foster parents would take your friend back or not. If your friend moved out of the friends house she would have to by law move in with another foster family because she isn't a legal adult. I think that is the way it goes unless your friend got emancipated from the foster care system and can live on her own.
My girlfriend is in foster care with her baby since she is a minor she cannot make decisions for her baby if we get married would the baby stay with foster care our could she come with us?

When you have a child in foster care, the state is still the legal guardian and the child may still have contact with the biological family. Foster parents have no legal rights to the child, they are just care givers. When a child is adopted, they take on the name of the parents and become equal to any biological children. I have three children, two adopted and one biological. My adopted children are just as…
They don't. A minor is placed in foster care by court order and the judge that issued the order has to rescind or amend the it before the person can leave the foster home. This applies even when a minor reaches the state's legal age of majority. All court orders pertaining to custodial matters related to a minor child supercede established laws.
Children can go into foster care for many reasons. It is a difficult decision to make and is not done lightly. Usually the court will order that a child goes into foster care. But in cases where there is an immediate danger to the child, the authorities can remove the child from the source of danger before asking the courts to consider foster care. Generally the court will rule that a child should go into…
Foster care and adoption is not the same thing. Yes, you get to meet your adoptive parents before they adopt you. That is not always the case with foster care since if a child is abused for instance the foster families are ready to receive you in the middle of the night sometimes, when it's needed. Foster care is not meant to be permanent like adoption.
