I am 17 and I turn 18 in early august. I am adopted by my aunt and uncle. My and and uncle and I do not get along which in most cases it wouldn't bother me cuz I'm use to it. But they impose there beliefs on be of going to military and tell me I am not going to ever make it anywhere else if I don't go military. I am gay and after resent activities they have found out I have a girlfriend and have become worse than ever. They barely igknowledge my existence which wouldn't bother me but when ever they do they start a yelling match with me or drag me into situations that have nothing to do with me. I have fought through a lot to get where I'm at but I am tired of being put down and judged for things I can't change. I have my permit and I am searching for a job am certain I will be accepted. I'm graduating high school on June 16th.
To be emancipated, you would have to prove that you are entirely capable of supporting yourself on your own -- that you have a place to live, that you can pay all your expenses, and that you don't need any outside support. If the most you can say is that you have a permit (is that work permit or driving permit? doesn't really matter) and you're looking for work, that's hardly enough.
Even so, filing in court for emancipation and going through the whole legal process for that is going to take you just about as long, if not longer, as waiting to turn 18. When you turn 18 in August, you will be legally able to move out on your own and go anywhere and do anything you want. My suggestion is that you just try to make the best of the situation for the next four months or so.
Be aware that this response does not create an attorney/client relationship. I live and work in Massachusetts and may or may not know the local laws where you live. I hope people find my responses not only helpful but somewhat entertaining as well. If you rely on this as legal advice, remember the old saying, "You get what you pay for."
