I know that on this site it says that you can and that you cant but can someone honestly give me the real answer. I turn 17 in less than a month and I want to move out without envolving the law. I have heard about Emancipation but my parents would never go for that.
Heres my situation:
I live with my mother. She has a hot temper and is very emotionally abusive. She kicked me out of the house at age 13 and sent me to live with my dad who I barely knew. I recently moved back this summer to escape from my fathers house because he is an alcoholic and is physically abuse when he is drunk. My step mom follows in his foot step with the drinking. My step sister has recently moved back into my dads house with her 2 yr old daughter and is seeking divorce from her husband. If I was to stay living with my father I would have a two year old to take care of when im not at school. My step brother is also 22, drinks, and smokes pot. Thats not a house that anyone needs to be in as far as im concerned. Its unsafe and unhealthy.
The deal with my mom is that she wont get off my a** about anything, shes always telling me that "Im not the daughter she raised" and that "Im a teenage monster" and "a mirror image of my father." I know your thinking "what could I do to make her say things like that to me?" Well, I stand up for my dad when she talks about him being a dead beat father. That enrages her. Or when I ask for lunch money she tells me that I dont appreciate anything.
Bottom line... I cannot stand living with either of my parents and I want out ASAP. I just dont want to get involved with the law and try to avoid hurting my family as much as possible. I love my family, just not what they do and the way they treat me.
So can anybody tell me the truth about 17yr olds moving out in Texas??
Thanks a million
