okay im 15 1/2, i live in ohio with my dad. He has never really been there for me. he always shoved me off on other relative but these last couple years he regained custody of me so i've been living with him. He lives in a housing devolement where he pays no rent and very little utilitys. for the last year he was away on a job several hours away so i tooks turns living either with my brother or my aunt or grandma. now he lost that job and he's back where he started except this time he's getting a unemployment check except all of it goes towards drugs. our gas and phone were shut off and thats illigal for where we live and theres never no money for food my grandma just buys the food. and it most likley is gonna stay that way unless he gets a job, which he'd travel far away. and i'd just be the same as last year.
and well i have a step family in california who has always been there for me so we dont consider the "step" i just know them as mom and sisters and brothers. and i also have my biological grandparents out here in claifornia ( thats where i am now for the summer) and they all have the recourses of taking good care of me and providing me with everything..not to mention they dont blow there money on drugs. and they all want me to live out here with one of them but my dad refuses to let me, "just because he's my dad and he want me to live with him", is there anyway i can get around that? what would happen if i just stayed out here? what could he do..he doesnt have no money, barley any utilities and if the housing people find the gas thing out we wont have a place to live either..and if he were to get a job i'd be alone again. and im almost 16 can i say iw ant to live out here?
