  1. Nobody "owns" you and at 16, if your parents do not agree, a Judge will have to give you an answer.

  2. It is not clear why you state that you are "owned" by the government. Who took you away from your mom and, if your dad is in the picture, why would the government be involved? It seems like you need to sit down and speak to your father and figure out what is going on. Getting married is not a good escape from parental control. Best of luck to you.
