  • I'm 17 and I want to move out.

    Excuse me for reposting this, since I'm new to threads, but I will repeat the same problem. My parents are divorced since I was 3, so it doesn't affect me. Yet my parents just finished a case of custody rights, and nothing really changed. My older brother lives withmy mom in Fresno, California and my younger brother and I are in Sacramento, Caifornia. But my father MIGHT recieved a job in Florida after a few years of being laid off. I'm sure my father will never let me live with my mother since he see's her as a monster, but I see her as one who cares forme way much more than my father does. I have no special connections to my father and we don't speak to each other anyways. But i do respect him as a father. His morals are different than mine and we disagree alot. The main problem is that me and my friends plan on moving in together for college. Yet me being in Florida wont help in any way. I've been researching ways to move out have found an option of emancipation. I beleve i have the qualifications to do so, yet I do not plan on living alone. A few friends will gradually take me in so we can continue our plans. If there is an option of not being emancipated then I can consider it. I think I can try to convince my father to allow me to If I can. But if this can't be helped, or if some options are not possible for me, I will find different solutions along the way. I don't mind my father moving to get a job, yet I rather stay here to continue pursueing my goals. There are peoplewho depends on me for this. Any responsesand coments are gradually apeciated. Thank you.

    Often, youth may reach out to NRS in several different ways to discuss their situation.
