    [I did not mean to offend you. I did not see that as a nasty response, I just do not like that sometimes people see something about a teen requesting emancipation and automatically get the notion of a teen who thinks they are grown and not ready for the world (although I have read many, and they ARE like that.)]

    I do enjoy reading the responses of people like you, because it helps me to know what are some things to look out for; that the judge may question. I never said that I will not answer questions in court. I will answer anything that they ask me. But, I will not elaborate on the abuse as a reason if they do not ask, simply because from speaking to others involved, they say the judge/courts always try to use that as a way to pass it up to foster care. My home is not stable, sometimes my parent leave for long periods of time [with my grandmother who does not work, cannot drive, etc.] to play at the casino. I must pay food, clothes, car, phone, etc with enough money left that would pay rent if I were on my own [my job]. For college after my senior year, I want to be able to file as an independent for financial aid, my father constantly calls the police to my house, I never get sleep here, constantly they have told me to leave and not to come back, but if I leave, they call the police, disruption of my education. I believe would do well on my own; yes, maybe with a bit of struggle at first, but not something I cannot overcome. And as for my last year of high school, in order to get a scholarship I must really do well, which I don't think can while being in this environment. Also, I hear it is best to show that you are living away from them. I can get my mother to let me room with a friend until the emancipation (having a job, going to school, paying rent, etc.), would this help my case? If so, what papers would my mother need to sign, also do both parents have to sign THAT paper?

      thank you. you don't happen to know anywhere with free consultation?
      When you call the number I posted, you can get a 30 minute consult for $25.00. It is well worth the small cost to find out for sure if you have a chance at emancipation or not.

          That will be up to the attorney you consult with.

            You do notice that, with all the posts you receive, only one person that is currently emancipated signed in.

            And friend Hawk is a very unusual case.

            I will tell you that the "hypothetical" job won't float... neither will you being emancipated so that you can move to another state ... thereby putting you out of the court's jurisdiction.

              Criminal record and runaway?

              No chance in hell.
