My question involves emancipation laws for the State of: Colorado
I have registered for this site just to learn as much as I can about getting emancipated in Colorado. You see, my long-term boyfriend is at the age where he can get emancipated legally and he really needs to. He is in an unstable environment. He lives with his mother and hasn't seen his father for over a year. I'm around him all the time, and it seems to me that his mom just keeps him around to be her servant. He's always washing her dishes, mopping up her animals crap, cleaning her car, etc. I can see this as a fair trade for food, shelter, clothes, and a loving environment, but he receives close to none of that. More then half the time he doesn't even have any food in his refridgerator, and gets yelled at by a renter who lives upstairs for eating his food (accidentally of course). It's ridiculous. Oh yeah, and on-top of all that, his mother abuses him. From what I can remember over the past year and a half she has thrown knives at him, threatened to kill his pets, tried to run him over with her truck, and come into his room late at night drunk and screaming at him for no apparent reason. Now she has decided to not let Taylor come to visit me at my house because she is afraid my dad will hurt him (this is because of drama from last year). My dad would never hurt Taylor and I think it's dumb that she legally can control where he goes when the only reason he can't come over is because she has a stupid grudge against my dad. The cops in my town tried to "help" but nothing changed, and now if Taylor is ever in my home he will be taken to some kind of juvy. (PYC) We have been planning this emancipation for awhile and Taylor has $2000 if needed, he is in school and has a job lined up for this summer at a grocery store full-time. He also has a place to stay with me or another one of his friends. If anyone could give me any USEFUL advice, that would be wonderful. No negative comments.
