I used to live in Florida with my mother and stepfather who physically abused me often. After our last physical encounter they sent me here to live with my dad. I have a family friend in Florida who wants to take me in so I can finish my education in Florida since I have scholarships available in Florida. My mother still has legal custody of me and refuses to let me live with a friend but I don't want to return to the house with my mother to get abused again. My father agrees on letting me live with a family friend but my mother is holding me back. How can I terminate her rights or emancipate myself so I can finish my education? I want to get this fixed as soon as possible so I dont miss anymore school. Please Help.
