Anyone know anything about this? I know that if you are emancipated, then you can move out of your house before you turn 18. Well, the reason that I'm asking is that my father is an abusive person (verbally and physically) and my mom is trying to drown her problems away with vodka (3 1.75 liter bottles a week (god damn!!)). Today, my mom came up to me, and asked me if I would be emancipated, and move out. The thing is... I dont know what to do. I have no clue what would happen. I know I would have a few places to go to, which isn't a problem. I know that I'll be getting work soon, so I would have a little money to support myself, and things otherwise. I just dont know what I should do. I really hate my home life, but will I be able to make it in the big world...?
