My parents are divorce and my dad physically would hurt me and so I moved to just live with my mom and my mom literally plays mind games and mentally hurts me. I'm 18 years old and so done with getting hurt by my family. I'm a senior, I graduate may 22 too. I live in Lincoln, NE. I don't want to live with them anymore.. It puts to much stress and hurt on me. I have three jobs and I do good in school. I also have a place I can stay that would be a stable place to live and they are willing to take car of me through college and everything
Yes, at 18 you are no longer a minor and your parents cannot force you to live with them. I am sorry you have had to endure this, but am very impressed with your hard work and you wanting to make a better life for yourself by going to college. Surround yourself with positive people and people who will value you and support you. You deserve it. I wish you the best.
Unfortunately at age 18 in the State of Nebraska, you are not legally an adult. 19 is the age of majority in this state. You can attempt to move out, but if one of your parents contacts the police, they could force you to return to their home. If you leave and your parents do not try to fight it, you will be fine.
You are talking about emancipation and it is very fact driven. Information on this can be found in the Bar Foundations publication "Reaching the Age of Majority. It is listed on the attach resource page: http://mkhansenlaw.com/social-security/
