I am currently living in Toledo, OH. I live with my mother and her abusive boyfriend. She is brings a lot of negativity into my life. She abuses drugs, and her boyfriend whom of 5 years has broken her back, broke her jaw, and ECT. Im only 15 1/2 ive been looking up emancipation and been thinking about it. I want to get a stable job when i am 16 and have enough money saved to move, and provide for my needs ( food and clothing). I can no longer take or watch the mental abuse, the negativity and the hatred in my household. So I'm looking to speak with someone about emancipation for the near future.
No, you can't get emancipated. Discuss your concerns with your mother and/or others. Best of luck to you.

Ohio does not have emancipation in most circumstances. See this link for more information:
Talk to a family member, teacher, school counselor, or other trusted adult about your situation. Or call your local children's services office.
