    Question Emancipation For 16-Year-Old Over Dad's Emotional Abuse

    My question involves emancipation. i am 16 (in Virginia) and my father causes me emotional stress/abuse. he tells me i'm stupid, yells at me, cusses at me, and only when he is mad at other people, not even just discipline. i have tried talking to him, telling him how i feel, but he refuses to admit he has done anything wrong. many adults i know agree with me that i should leave, and even my mom (when she found out) [he is very careful to do this only when no one is around, but some people know] told me she couldn't support me in that (they are together and she knows how angry he would be) but she would understand if i had to leave. hemade me quit and will not allow me to work b/c he knows i would save money to leave. i have somewhere to stay once emancipated and would like to do so, staying in school but working to. can i do this without his permission? also b/c i am not working now and not supporting myself? if you can could you please tell me and/or give me a lawyer in/near goochland, VA that could talk to me at least? thank you very much.

    Since you are not working and not supporting yourself, emancipation is not an option. Period.
