I'm 16 years old and I feel like the best thing for me is to become emancipated. I have read up on all the rules and regulations about getting it done but, I'm not abused so I'm not sure my chances of it happening are too high. I just feel like my family life is unstable. My dad and step mom argue a lot, especially when my father drinks because hes not good with alcohol. And he most of the time verbally takes it out on me, and the rest of the family. My step mother is the one who is around most often and she treats me unfairly by putting most of the responsibilities on me and trying to make me feel like I'm crazy, by saying I do bad things when I don't. I am the one who is constantly taking care of my younger siblings, all the time. We have recently moved away from family and friends, and any escape I have from leaving the house, and they rarely let me visit, maybe once a year. I understand that a child needs guidance and rules in order to turn into a good adult but I feel that I am mature enough to live on my own, and achieve more that way. I have straight A's in school and I have never been in trouble with the law. I am planning on graduating high school and going to a 2-4 year college. I am willing to do all the requirements of being emancipated. I just wanted to know what my chances looked like from someone else perspective. Thanks!
Oh, and I was also wondering if volunteering anywhere like at a hospital would make my chances higher? Maybe to show that I'm more responsible? Because I have been volunteering at a hospital for about 6 months. And I know I need sufficient funds, and a long term job, etc. For it to really happen.
