Hi, I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada. Im 16, turning 17 on November 21st. I am also in grade 12. Right now, I am not living at home. I am lving at a friends, but no for long. I am trying to find a place to live till atleast next summer or till my mom will agree and let me marry my bf and let me cross the border to the States. Anyways, I want to get imancipated from her. I only say her bause my dad died this past Feburary. My reasons to be imancipated from her is because her boyfriend has hit me more then a few times. Me and him never liked eachother from day one. And everyone knows that. Me and him have physical fights. He emotionally abuses me alot. And at times my mom does too. I went to my school consellor and told him my home problems, and he said he has to go to the cops. Now the cops are involved. My mom and her boyfriend wont admit that he is abusive to me and her. I have been in and out of my home 3 times. She just sits there watching him lie, and never sticking up for me. I know she knows that she is in the wrong and so is he. One thing that bothers me is that I want to move the states and marry my boyfriend, but she wont let me. Now, i dont understand her. When I left, I made it clear ot her that if I leave, she can not boss me around, and follow me or get the cops involved. She agreed, and said i could even go and live with my bf. My bf is 22. My mom also said that I can never come back home, this is final. I dont know whut to do. I need help to find out how to get imancipated here, and to move to the states. Please help me.
