Thank you for your question. Who is the "they" that will pick him up? Does a state agency already have an open case pending on him? Where are his parents?
Child protective services
I don't know this kid. He is new to the school district. His dad is dead and his mother is in Florida according to him. I guess he was living with an aunt and uncle and they kicked him out
My son has become friends with him but I don't anything about him except what he has been telling me. He has spent the last two nights with us. My son feels bad and wants me to help him.
Thank you for your question. Generally a minor will not be charged with finding his own place to live. If he is in the system and not living with the people who are his guardians or the people responsible for him under law, then he will be picked up to the extent that Protective Services or Social Services is alerted that there is a problem with his living conditions or there is a court order ordering him to live in a certain situation. This is not likely an ultimatum given to him by Social Services as they would not likely let him randomly decide where to live without some sort of investigation into the household. This ultimatum realistically sounds like if it is real, it would come from the guardian perhaps threatening to take legal action to have him picked up (either via Social Services or the police) if he does not have a new stable place to live by the end of the week. Although the situation is possible, it sounds a little suspect.
