  • 16 and want to move out

    I am sixteen and I live in California with both Of my parents who are on the verge of divorcing. Currently, I am staying at what I call my dad's house with my two younger brothers and my mother. Last week, my mom and I left to live with her mother (my grandmother), I was really happy there mainly because my dad wasn't there. I haven't liked my dad for many years now, and just being in his presence sickens me. He verbally abuses me and is unreasonable in everything he expects of me. Every time I step into this house, I become extremely upset and I just want to leave. We are moving back into my original house with my dad and I am extremely upset. I want to live with my grandmother but my parents won't let me. They won't let me live anywhere else but with them, even if I'm unhappy. I don't know what to do. I don't want to be here. I need to know what I can do to live somewhere else. Help.
