  • Need more info, but it is possible. If the teen is in danger with his/her custodial parents and you can prove it, and of course you need to show that you have interest in taking the child in. It does involve the court system, so you'll need a lawyer.

  • NO, if that teen has other family members to go to first, then maybe yes after you prove them to be unfit.
