My question involves juvenile law in the State of: California.
I'm currently 16, in enrolled in high school with a very high GPA, and I do have a job. I'm living with my dad and want to get emancipated due to his anger issue's, physical and mental abuse; I do have evidence of all three. (I'm not wanting to involve child services in anyway) He is only there for me financially, nothing else. My friend said it would be totally fine to live with her and her mom for one year until I go away to college. My mom is currently paying child support since my dad has full custody. I do have not spoken or seen my mom since the custody case (about one year ago). I have a few questions regarding my situation.
1.) Is this a fair enough reason to get emancipated? and, is there a chance?
2.) Will my mom have to get involved in this matter?
3.) Will my dad lose child support checks from my mom?
4.) Does my dad find out if I'm going through the emancipation process in any way?
- If you need more information to answer some of these questions just let me know.
