I was physically abused as a teen and it seems like this might happen to my younger sibling too... I feel I am in a better position to parent than the parents but don't know if there is any thing I could possibly do. Anyone familiar with this kind of situation?Answer Question

Was your abuse documented with CPS?
The only thing you can do is get a lawyer and see if you can take them away from your Mom and Dad. If there is no proof to back you up, it probably will not work.

You probably will have to get a civilian Lawyer.

looks like minor can emancipate at age 16... this might be a route we could take if she has to have proof... Idk that she is going to be able to call cops or cps if it happens again. I feel like I am letting her down -16 is a couple years from now.

She is actually with us right now but set to go back soon. i like your idea but worry what the legal repercussions of kidnapping would do to my husband's job kwim? I feel like I am sending her into the storm and there is nothing i can do about it... Other than wait for it to happen again, call CPS and file for custody or wait for her to emancipate, which ever comes first...

I can't prove anything because it's a step parent issue and my own bio parent was a douche enough to not have filed a report when the abuse that caused me to move took place. now I am talking to my sis more and finding that her other sibling in the home has been physically abusive to her also. There are police reports on file for that. I know there has been pushing and at least one incident of punching- throwing objects that caused a black eye- and certainly what most people would consider emotional abuse wrapped up in all that.
