    RE: Need to be free and released

    Hey there,

    Thanks for reaching out to us. It sounds like you are frustrated with your situation at home and you want to move out so you can be independent and on your own. Just so you know, we’re not legal experts, but can do our best to give some general info. The word that starts with an e that makes it so your parents no longer are your legal guardians is “emancipation”. Emancipation is the name for the legal process a minor can go through to become independent before turning 18. Unfortunately it can be a really long and costly process. You have to go to court and prove to the judge that you’re in a bad situation at home and that you’d be able to support yourself financially on your own. For more information on emancipation in Michigan, you can go to this web address:

    We know it might be difficult, but have you tried talking to anyone about your situation at home? A trusted adult like another family member or a school counselor or a close friend might be able to help you work through your situation. You can always call us as well if you would like to talk. We’re here to support you so please don't hesitate to give us a call 24/7 at 1-800-RUNAWAY. We are looking forward to hearing from you soon, and wish you the best of luck.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
