    Question Emancipate or Just Change Guardianship

    Hi,
    I am [Name Removed], I live with my mom and step dad which have custody of me in California. My biological father lives in Kentucky, who i want to live with. The reason i want to live with him is because my mom has biopolar is very irrational and can not make any good decions when it comes to me or my health. i have a skin disorder where i can get infections really easy from.

    For Example: i go to boarding shcool five miles away from my Mom's house because my mom doesnt want me in that envirorment at home. I was sick at school for three weeks before I has seen any medical attention. the doctors said that i had a staff infection as a result i was hospitalized. when i was at the hospital my mom only spent a total of three hours at the hospital out of five days. Through out my stay in the hospital my mom wasnt around to talk to the doctors or help me with the upkeeping of my skin.

    when i was released from the hospital in San diego, i came to visit my dad in kentucky
    what do i do ?

    Have you talked to your father about his seeking a change of custody, either by getting your mother's permission or going through the court?

    i have talked to my mom before and she was totally against me going to live with my dad. and at that time i wasnt old enough to make my own decision.

    do you know if i am old enough to make my own decision about what parent i want to live with

    i think emancipation means that the person that has custody of gets all of their legal rights terminated and the minor is in charge of all of his/hers medical, financial, personal decisions.


    the only reason i was thinking about emancipating was because my mother family has control of the court where i would have to go through if i just wanted to change custody of parents.

    when i came to visit my dad in kentucky got sick again and was hospitalized and my dad took really good care me and never left my side. my mom on the other hand was hardly ever at the hospital. my mom has two younger kids and two older step kids than me, so basically i am stuck smack in the middle.
    my dad has only one and that is me.

    No.

    Emancipation means that you have a full-time job and you support yourself 100%.

    If your father wants the custody order modified, he will have to file for modification in the court. You have no standing to bring suit for modification.

    When you are 18, you get to decide where you live.

    You are not a candidate for emancipation.
