If my mom gets arrested will I have to go live with my dad?

My parents are divorced and I live with my mom and I'm 15. I didn't see my dad for a long time but lately he is around and it makes my mom mad when he is there. They got to fighting the other night and our neighbor called the police. When they came to our house they talked to us all alone and wrote something and gave it to my mom and to my dad. They didn't show me what it was. I'm nervous that my dad will have my mom arrested or something so that we will be separated. Is there something he can do to make that happen?

    Your mom can make your dad stay away, and probably should.? Whether you would be placed with your dad upon your mom's arrest depends on what she is arrested for, if she makes bond, and the outcome of the charge.
