When your parent gets taken to jail on drug possession........(more in info box)?

When your parent gets taken to jail on drug possession and your family is out of the question to live with because of the law and abuse then where do u go other than in foster homes? if you have a close friend or family friend that offers to take u in can u go there?

You can, but child services in your area needs to do a home study on them, and they need state approval. Nothing too difficult. If this happened to you, I am so sorry. I am dripping tears on my keyboard. Your situation is in my prayers.

it depends on ur age some states allow children to decide who to stay with at a certain age and whether the family agrees to it i would ask a social worker about it

First of all, I am so sorry and disturbed to read about your situation! Secondly, yes, going to a family member's or a family friend's house to stay is a better option because you know those people. Besides, you have no idea what goes on in Foster homes! Kids are abused, beaten, and sometimes even raped there! I really hope you don't end up there...... May God keep you and your family under his protection, Amen! Be safe.

Godparents, but close friends or family could also get guardianship.
