    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out to us, we understand it can be hard to take that first step. We’re glad you did. You mentioned enduring emotional abuse which is reportable against your mom. Please keep in mind you by no means deserve any type of abuse, emotional or otherwise. Unfortunately, emotional abuse is often harder to provide evidence for compared to physical abuse which is often what CPS relies on when conducting an abuse investigation. That said, we can’t be 100% sure what the outcome will be if your local CPS decides to open a case based on what you share. Sometimes CPS decides to remove minors from the home and other times they offer services such as family counseling or mediation instead. The only way to know the outcome might be to reach out to them directly and if you’re ready to do that we are here to help you through that process. Reaching out to Child Help USA at 1-800-422-4453 or may help to get a better understanding of what may happen before and after a report is made.
    In regards to emancipation, usually a parent needs to agree with the decision in order for an emancipation to be successful. Although there are expectations. If you would like, we could connect you with a legal aid, who may be able to better help with what emancipation may look like realistically for you considering state laws and you mothers’ mental state.
    We hope this helps. Please reach out if we can offer any further support.

    Be safe,

    I want to move out at 15 but without consent

    At home I feel like im being emotionally abused. My mom will say rude stuff about me and my sister right infront of us to someone. When we were younger she would also occasionally abuse us by humiliating us, degrading us and making us feel ashamed of ourselves. Once my face was shoved in my own vomit. Now its better but the emotional stress I'm feeling is getting to be too much. Lately she's been more crazy than usual. Shes getting her meds upped but shes been degrading us whenever we do something wrong. She called us ungrateful and much more. She occasionally manipulates us by making us feel guilty and whenever i'm away from home she must know exactly where i am at ALL times. She has accused me and my sister on multiple occasions of being selfish and needy, ect. I'm getting tired of it and I want to run away. I know i can't because she WILL try her hardest to get me back. I also want to get emancipated but im not yet 16. (Im about to turn 15) My friends parents would like me to live with them and they've offered twice to help me get emancipated but what if that doesn't work and my petition is denied? What do i need to do.
