My question involves juvenile law in the State of: louisiana
i am 16 years of age and i will be turning 17 on the 11th of june this year. i am young gay black male, highly educated and motivated. i want to know if i can get emancipated because of the situation i am placed in. i have an abusive, alcoholic mother. she cares nothing about me, she is materialistic and very aggresive. when i came out we constantly and still are getting into arguments and physical fights. she has put me out of the house on many occasions. she once put me out while it was winter and i had on only a wife beater and briefs, no socks,shoes,jacket or anything else. she has called the police on me claiming i am a very disrespectful person and that i treat her badly when its in reverse. she has threatend
ed to kill me, poison me and verbally abused me as physically. she has beaten me, she has made me into her slave because whatever and whenever she says i have to do something i have to do it. i admit i am disrespectful on occasions but only to her. that is the only argument she has against me. i am in the 11th grade. i am now looking for a job and hopefully will have money saved up to move out. i asked some of my relatives can i move in with them and they agreed to my proposition
i am fearing for my life because she told me that i will not make it to be 18. law enforcements told me when i turn 17 that i can move out without her consent and thats what i plan on doing. i once was beat badly that my nose started bleeding and i had marks and bruises on my face. a teacher even asked me if i wanted her to involve the social worker and i insisted no because i know if i would have and i wouldnt have been able to leave that she would hurt me. she beats me, she calls me out of my name and it hurted badly. i want to leave out of this abusive relationship with my mother. when she drinks its abuse ×10. i want to know can i leave when i turn 17 and if not can i get emancipated due to my current situation. and .ore information about it is that she has called the police so that they can have me in the system.
