  • First of all, you need the police involved if you have been abused. I do agree that moving in with your boyfriend is not a good idea. The best place to start is by asking a lawyer about emancipation laws.

  • Dear, you need to tell someone at school. They have programs and ways to help children and teens that are not in good sisuations. Emancipation is ok, and a very good idea, but I think your parents have to agree to it, and its a long process. Next time you go to school, talk with a teacher, explain what is going on at home, and they can send you to the right people. If you can't wait til then, then I would call Boystown National Hotline or something like that.

  • In order to be an emancipated minor, you need to prove that you can support yourself financially.
    Please talk to a school counselor, favorite teacher, or other trusted adult.
