I want to take custody of my siblings In 2 years from now because of so many reasons. My siblings and I live In a messed up household. My sister who is 10 years old will be 11 years old in a few weeks, and I get treated like..... I don’t want to get in too much. But, I need an answer to my question.
You CANNOT just take 'custody' of your siblings in 2 years from now when you turn 21 years old. That is not how the law in New York State works. Your 'taking' your siblings will not be 'in their best interests.' You have to approach this in the right way AND show the Court that you can financially support your siblings and not to mention, ensure that they are well fed each day, all the while when you are trying to hold down a job and/or pursue a post-high school education.
Your situation is very unfortunate & I have much sympathy for you & your siblings. But you cannot think about running away with them. That is not going to help anyone.
YES, you should consult with a lawyer and NO, you should not seriously consider doing this.
