Well I would like some advise on emancipation from people that have been emancipated or have dealt with it in some way...I am only 15 with no job (the only jobs that hire around here are 16+,If anyone knows a place to look for jobs or any jobs for my age range please let me know!) I'm thinking about emancipation and getting really anxious...I'm thinking when I'm 16 I'll start filling out forms and stuff once I get a job..well as for my reasons for getting emancipated:
1.I'm gay and not at all accepted by my parents or family and am treated as If I have no feelings.
2.I'm going to be kicked out at 18 since I won't do what my parents want me to do which is to not be me...so instead of being kicked out I would rather be an adult and leave early and start living my life...
3. I have already calculated how many hours a 16 year old minor can work in California and how much minimum wage is an hour and have figured out how much many I can make a month and it Is enough for renting a studio apartment.
4.At 15 and 1/2 I get my permit and at 16 I should have my license so I can drive myself to school and wherever I need to go.
5.I have big hopes for the future and plan to go to many different colleges studying a variety of things but In my current living condition I am not allowed to practice or study these things.
My parents only care what others think -bottom line- so they refuse to let me express myself or feel comfortable with myself..I feel emancipation will let me move on with my life and make me not feel so depressed all the time..because I will finally be able to be me..
So help anyone? Who can I get to help me fill out my forms? Can I just move out and find an apartment or do I HAVE TO GET MY PARENTS CONSENT TO MOVE OUT...which would defeat the whole purpose of me trying to get emancipated...so advise..
