Im 16 years old and currently living in London, ON (Canada). My family situation at the time (and since I can remember) has been horrible. My dad is verbally abusive to me and my mom and I can't live like this anymore. Anyone I meet or that even see's pictures of me tells me that I look permanently sad, and wonders whats wrong. I would like to be living on my own and away from here. My boyfriend is 24 years old with a great job, and could suppport me (but he lives in the States) and I am perfectly capable of getting a job and supporting myself as well. I am trying to get information on different options that I may have to get out of this situation and change my life. Do I need to be emancipated to move out and live on my own if I can support myself? What other options might I have?
