  • Im 15 I need to leave

    I'm 15 and seriously hate my family. I can't do anything, not even relax as soon as I get a break my step mom starts to call me a lazy peice of ***t. I just barely turned 15 and can't wait a whole year to get emancipated. I have family in a different state who already have said I could stay with them. Can I go there without my parents permission?

    Hi there and thanks for posting on our forum. It sounds like things aren’t going so well with your family and you are trying to figure out a way to move out of state to stay with other family. We are very sorry to hear your step-mom puts you down/curses at you. Sounds like emancipation is not something you think would work for you at this time.

    Please note we are not legal experts; however, without your parent’s permission your other family could be at risk of getting charged with “harboring a runaway.” We are here to talk to your more about your situation, go over pros and cons of leaving, and can hopefully help you come up with a plan. We invite you to reach out through our Live Chat here:

    We hope this helps and wish you the best of luck!
