i am looking into getting emancipated. my dad commited suicide when i was 3, my mom has been a Tweak her whole life. when i was 16 she lost her apartment so my sis ( 18 at the time) and i got our own place. i paid her a share of rent. i dont go to school. there i no reason to go to school simply because i have no credits and i should be a senior this year. it wont do me any good..my sis has moved out and i worked out with my landord to stay there by myself because i told her my situation, and i got a co signature. .i work full time for my grandfathers company and pay 750 for my apartment plus utilities. im 100 % supportimg myself. im not in school . which is breaking a law. im curious if i can still get emancipated. my mom gets 100 bucks a month from government for my dads death, and i've never seen a dime of that even though she's not even supporting me. she's hurting. i dont even want to see her. she has no problem with me getting emancipated. if i go infront of a judge and try to get emancipated. is he gonna say no and put me in school, but if that happens i dont have a place to live. my mom is living house to house at all her drug dealing friends house. so i refuse to be around or around her friends that she associates with. i've been 100% supporting myself for the last 8 months. what are my options?...should i just stay in my position and wait until im 18 ..im 17 now...its not until almost another year until im 18...i wish i could get emancipated.
