Sorry I am writing on your post but the site won't let me write a new forum. I was wondering if i qualify for being emancipated. I am 16 and live with my mother, my father died when i was 7. My mom mentally, verbally and sometimes physically abuses me. It's been going on for 6 years now and I don't want to stay with her and be a emotional roller coaster and stress out and lose the baby. My boyfriend and I found a school right out of Las Vegas that will let us stay there (we have grants and scholarships that pay for everything) while we go to school.
