I live in Las Vegas, NV and I am almost seventeen years old. I live with my mother and step father. Me and my mother do not get along at all, though she doesn't abuse me physically, she does mentally. On picture day for example, she told me how ugly I was. I really can't live with her, living with her causes me to cut myself. I have a very good part time job at a high class wedding facility and have a great boyfriend that I can live with. I also go to a great school and get fantastic grades.... Can I get emanicpated? Would I need my parents to appear in court and sign anything? Because I know they won't.
