I'm 16 years old and I live with my mom and step-dad in Colorado. My life with them is not so great. My mom is very unstable and my step-dad is an extremely angry person. I have a half brother who is 6 and I'm afraid for the both of us, that someday something might happen because of my step-dad's anger issues.
My real father, has never really been a part of my life but my grandparents used to have custody of me. My mom left me with them when I was 7. She was married to my first step-dad and according to her left "to straighten things out." When she came back two years later, she was divorced from her first husband and married to my current step-dad and pregnant.
I'm wanting to see if there's any way I may be able to get emancipated from my parents. I have a job and I earn quite a bit of money for the average 16 year old. I'm trying really hard to get by with my own money in hopes of getting an emancipation. I'm hoping to live with my grandparents in California again.
Please let me know if there is anyway this is possible.
