My father and mother are separated and my father lives in another country. My mom wants to move back with him but I want to stay and finish my last year in high school. I also have a job.
Well, yes and possibly no. One possible option is to file a case for emancipation, where the court declares you to be an adult, even though you are not even 18. You will need a lawyer for this. Do you have any relatives or friends who could help you out on fees, etc.?
Please feel free to call my office if you have any questions.
