I'm sixteen years old and my parents are abusive, but when I have tried to get help they have said there isn't much they can do, and they includes CPS. Anyway, I recently learned what emancipation is, and I know I could wait until I'm 18 but I don't think I'm going to make it until then. I need to get out! But they won't let me get a job or leave the house, I'm using a computer in school to type this, I don't know what to do... I have friends that would let me live with them until I can afford to get my own place, but when I looked at the rules in my state, West Virginia, I have to be living away from my parents to get emancipated, but they won't let me leave, frankly if they find out I posted this it's not going to be good for me... But I make amazing grades and haven't got in trouble, I'm responsible and resourceful enough to get a job, and I've been taking care of myself for a very long time now. I'm really nervous which is why this is all over the place, but another requirement is having a job, which again I can't get without parental consent. I need to be emancipated becuase if I live with anyone else I'm related to by blood I'll be in the same situation, so I need to stay with one of my friends until I can rent an apartment. And I'm also broke so I can't afford a lawyer. Please respond as soon as possible, I'm sorry if I left anything out, and I'm terrified to run away because they've burned my stuff before and abuse my pets when I do things they don't like, thanks for reading.
