Hello. My name is***** am an attorney and I'll be happy to help you.
I'm so sorry your whole family is going through this.
The first thing you should do is contact Child protective services. A 16-year-old is in no position to decide where he is to live, and living with his 21-year-old girlfriend's parents is by no means an ideal situation. He needs stability. What if they break up and he once again has nowhere to go. You should also contact the family court.
There will need to be a hearing to terminate Mom's rights, if you (and the courts) decide to proceed that way. The courts in these types of situations, particularly when you are a pro se litigant – someone who is proceeding without an attorney. Do you need me to get you the phone number/contact information for the Family Court in your area?
