  • Moving out at 17 in NH

    Hi my name is Kira. I’m 17 and live in New Hampshire. I tested out of high school early and since then I have been working. My dad is emotional and mental abusive. My boss believes I am being denied medical care due to a prior injury with me falling down the stairs. My question is how do I get emancipated sooner rather than later? I have worked at this job for about a year and a half and have enough money for a car and apartment.

    Hi there,



    You mentioned wanting to know how you can leave home before turning 18. The easiest way to leave home is with your parent's permission. We understand that might be challenging, however, maybe there’s another family member, relative, or a family friend who could help to communicate how you’re feeling to your parent.

    We’re sorry you’re going through this. You don't deserve to be hurt in any way. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. You may also be able to report any mistreatment to CPS. Child Help USA 1-800-422-4453 www.childhelp.org is an organization that helps protect minors from being harmed. They can tell you more about how CPS could respond to your situation. If you ever need assistance calling out to CPS to make an abuse or neglect report please call is at 1-800-RUNAWAY.Lastly, you can also look into emancipation options. In most states you need to be at least 16 to be considered and demonstrate that you can support yourself financially and independently. Emancipation often can be a lengthy process and may even cost some money for court fees. We would be happy to look into legal resources if that’s something you are considering.



    Please reach out soon so that we may offer support and resources to you. Our number is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).



    Be safe,



    NRS
