i live in south dakota and i have a young friend who does not get along with his family. he wants to live with me instead and am wondering if guardianship or emancipation would be the better choice. his mother told him that she was emancipating him yesterday, but i don't know if that is such a good idea, since he would need to be self-supporting. and, does he get treated as an adult in every way legally or does he still need to follow curfew laws and if arrested for something, is he tried as an adult?
