My question involves emancipation laws for the State of: TN
So I turn 17 tomorrow.
I have been waiting for years to turn 18.
I do not have a job yet, and my mother would be very much against this.
She has taken back her abusive boyfriend. He would emotionally and physically abuse me when I was 10 until I was 12...I feel like I'm living in Hell now.
I don't have a job yet, nor a driver's liscense. I've applied for a few jobs as of the other day, and am waiting for a reply.
I just don't know what to do...
There are DCS records of where I was removed from the home before, and I have no juvenile delinquincy record.
I am more than willing to get a job and support myself, paying my own rent.
Next schoolyear, I'll be a senior.
I read that TN doesn't have any rules about emancipation, but is it possible? In any way?
Also, if I ran away and could stay hidden until I was 18, could I still be charged?
