Hello! So in my story Where I Hide, an otherworldly Voice puts my main character Delilah Weylin into a really tight spot. One night when she's like 13, her house catches on fire and her parents die, but she has no recollection of this at all. She only remembers walking outside and seeing the fire department. They do live in an older home, I imagine, and I'm acutally not sure if she's the one who did it or if it was a paranormal force that sparked it. This Voice (that's its name, as far as Delilah is concerned) has shown Delilah vivid imagery of fire since it first showed up, which I'm assuming is right before everything starts to happen. Before, I had her get checked in with phychiatrists, taken from school, the whole works, becuase her parents knew about this Voice. But that seemed too much, you know? Now it's just a big thing that happens over the course of a few years till it gets up to the current point in time in the story. My research question, is: Delilah is still a minor when she is found and the court system believes its her. she has no way of proving it wasn't. She's put under legal guardianship of her cousin Toby, and I have an estimate of how long the story takes and a guess at how long she'd be in court if they can't find evidence. How would the court system treat her? What are the duties and priorities of the court? How would this affect her schooling and what all would Delilah have to do to please the court or complete her tasks and meetings? Any other additional information is welcome!
