My daughter just turned 16 and has a 3 1/2 month daughter. They live with me. But she is not very responsible. I am afraid she will run away and take the baby with her. She ran away before and went to juvy for 10 days and we found out she was pregnant when she got home. She wanted to keep the baby and I was happy for that. But she goes for (walks) and stays gone for hours. I have tried everything to get her to obey my rules. We have had that problem for a few years, and it hasn't gotten any better. She does take care of the baby most of the time. But it's just us 3 and I don't want to take the chance that she will leave and I won't know if she is taking care of the baby. What can I do to legally take care of them both? Please help!! I can't afford a lawyer but if she agrees can we make a legal document and have it notorized to make it legal?
