My question involves emancipation laws for the State of: arizona
im 15 years old now, and i cant stand living with my mom.
i used to live primarily with her, about a year ago my dad took over primary custody of me.
i still see her too much. at the time, i thought it was great that i wouldnt have to live with her. i was only 14, however, and i agreed to anything just to get me out of her care.
i go to her house 3 out of 4 weekends and every break im there almost the entire time.
i have friends to hang out with over there, but my mom doesnt trust me. she doesnt let me out that much and when she does she checks up on me the whole time, but thats not what bothers me the most. we fight a lot. she fights almost twice with her new husband, my stepdad, every weekend.
she is basically a psycho b****.
i also live in a bad neighborhood too.
with shootings, gangs, and fights.
we've actually had an occurance where a bullet went through my house.
at my dads, its completely different. he lets me have fun, and we never fight.
theres never yelling over here. its the complete opposite of my moms house.
i love it here.
i really like being over here, and i love spending time with my dad, but i rrely get to because im never over here, and when i am im always working on school stuff.
basically, i asked him if i could have less visitation with her, but he doesnt want to spend a lot of money. last year he spent 7000 dollars on court fees.
we are in a position, where if its needed, we can do this again, but it just took so long last year. and i dont want to put him through the hassle again.
is there anyway i could possibly emmancipate myself from JUST my mom?
or would we really have to go back and change the child custody again?
