If things are so bad where your brother is residing with your father who has some criminal matters pending against him, your brother needs to consult with an adult that he feels comfortable in confiding in to begin the process of a unilateral move out of the situation where he presently is in.

Since your brother is two years away from being an adult, the court will take heed where your brother wishes to reside. I suggest that you make contact with a family law attorney to help get the move in proper order from a legal perspective.
