    Default Can I Be Emancipated

    My question involves guardianship in the State of: Louisiana

    I am 16 i live in louisiana i will be 17 in two months i been having problems at home for years now...wen i was 13 i reported child abuse because my mother hit me with a stick it wasnt the first time its the first time i reported it and they did nothing. Wen i was 14 i got pregnant and my mom told me that im not going to finish school i cant live with her im stupid and tried to make me abort the bby but i had her and wen i was 15 she pool ut me out because i allowed my bbys father to come get her she dropped me off on a street corner with nothing but the clothes on my back i Had to live with my aunt for almost a month i provided for my self even though i didnt have a job i had money saved up and used it wisely. Later the police came got me she told them i ran away and they didnt bother to hear my story even though i reported her for the second Time for child abuse cause she Hit me with a stick again they made me go home anyway.now im 16 and a week ago she started putting her fingers all in my face because she was mad cause i let 3 people ride with me to Walmart and she Said i didn't have a license which she had been letting me drive almost a year without One she got upset and kept putting her fingers in my face i asked her nicely three times to stop and talk to me like person without putting her hands on me she said she grown she can do that so i went to my room she told me to leave so i left she called the police and told them i just left and didnt say anytthing nd i ran away for 3 days they didnt ask questions they told me if i leave again they will take me to the girls home and take my baby i dnt want that.the police wont listen im hoping a judge will bwcause im about to get a job and try to get me a house and provide for me and my baby on my own which ik can be dne .i was wondering if this is a good reason to be emancipated ? Will the judge even consider it ?

    You are 16 with a child - the court will not emancipate you since this indicates that you need more (and not less) adult supervision.

    Are you currently providing for both of you, outside of the home, without support from any other source?

    1) They can't take your child from you.
    2) You cannot be emancipated - you are incapable of supporting yourself and your child, since you do not already work full time and live away from home. Additionally, emancipation in your state requires the consent of your parents.
    3) Stop driving without a license. It's illegal.

    If you're truly being abused, you call CPS.

    Elsewise, you suck it up til you're 18. You can leave at 12:01AM on your 18th birthday and never look back.

    Hon, you're a child with a child - this shows the court that you're not mature enough to live independently.

    The courts will, literally, look for any reason to NOT emancipate you. You've given them one, right there.
