I am 17 years old and I live in colorado. When I was 16 my mom kicked me out and I had no contact with her for 3 months. I was placed back into her custody by police after they ran my name and I came back missing. I was at her house for 2 months then she kicked me out again. I lived in hotels that were payed for by the state for 30 days, then I was returned to her house. She kicked me out may 21 and I have not seen her for 5 months. I live with my girlfriend. Her mother has section 8 and we are trying to find a way to make me her dependant so she can keep her voucher. Would a power of attorney be enough to claim me? Or would she have to take me into her custody?

Once you are in her physical custody for six months she can file for allocation of parental responsibilities.
