      Yes, you are certainly showing the maturity a judge would look for in deciding to emancipate you.
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

        whatever you say.
        thanks for nothing :]
        but technically i posted this just like a bunch of other teens who are ready to get out.
        basically just to see if anyone is listening and to have the opinion but NOT to be talked down to.


        Even in my case, when I was seventeen and wanting to move in with my father instead of my mother (and she was an alcoholic), I couldn't without my mother's permission.

        A judge isn't going to let you move in with your boyfriend. You'd have a better chance if it was just a friend and even that chance would pretty much mean nothing.

        You're not being talked down to, you're being talked to in a 'matter of fact' way because what you are getting is facts. You're talking to adults, you need to get used to not always getting your way. If you want someone to understand you, talk to your boyfriend.

I CANT STAND IT ANYMORE! i have lived like this for four years and they hate me. they really do. they talk about me. and tease me and practically harrass me. i cant live here anymore!

            well that's probably not a good idea either seeing as how this girl seems to have an anger problem. Definitely not someone I would be trusting to be telling the entire truth. However, given the benefit of the doubt, she still cannot get emancipated. No matter how mad she gets.

              You learn to get along with your step-siblings, talk to your dad about how you feel WITHOUT getting angry or defensive. You learn to shove food you don't like down your throat and if you want something you like, buy or learn to make it yourself, and offer to make it for the whole family so they can see what you like and try it.

              Your cutting will land you in a therapist's office, not at your boyfriends.

              You learn to deal with teasing in a non-violent way.

              I'm only 2 years older than you and I'm telling you this, so it's not a "omg, the big bad adults are talking down to little ol' me" thing

                I live in Georgia and have actually gone to the trouble, on a yearly basis, to muddle through the interesting state government records office to find out the statistics on teen emancipation.

                In 2005, twelve teens were emancipated. Not twelve thousand or twelve hundred. Twelve. A football team with a sub.

                All twelve were pregnant teens that married their boyfriends under a loophole in the Georgia law that allowed pregnant teens to avoid the parental consent waiver.

                In that year, the Georgia legislature closed that loophole. It no longer exists.

                Therefore, the Georgia courts are the only way to become emancipated. In the last three years, no children have been completely emancipated.

                There is a program for teens to live independently as wards of the court. However, you will have to prove a great school record, a far better than average earning history, and a place to live independently.

                Your caseworker will drop in on you monthly to make sure you are staying out of trouble. They will talk to your landlord and your boss. They will talk to your teacher and parents.

                This program is to help the very poor survive. You already have a roof over your head. You have food in your belly.

                No court in any jurisdiction is going to allow you to live with your boyfriend... the courts try to avoid situations where children and the children's children end up looking to the state for food, shelter and medical care.
                Not everything that makes you mad, sad or uncomfortable is legally actionable.

                I am not now nor ever was an attorney.

                Any statements I make are based purely upon my personal experiences and research which may or may not be accurate in a court of law.
