What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Montana
I have a 17 year old runaway brother. If he shows up can he stay with me (older sister)? Could I get custody of him? Or, could I keep him until a court decision, and is there anyway that could take a full year? He's runaway from my father's custody, serious abuse, but he's in another state where they won't do anything about it. Social services won't step in because of his age. Brother is an MT citizen. I need to know what to ask when I meet a lawyer, and what I need to research, because I won't be able to afford much legal help. Thanks so much!
