Can a 15 year old girl be considered a run away if she goes to a family members house. My granddaughter no longer wishes to live with her Mother because of physical and emotional abuse

Thank you for your inquiry. A relative could have grounds to file Motions with the Family Court tor emergency custody as well as a potential guardianship. While there is no set age where children can state where they want to live, the older a child the more weight a Judge will give to their opinion.
If you'd like to discuss your legal options in more detail feel free to contact me directly.
