I am 15 1/2 years old. I moved to AZ last year with my mom. It has been the best years of my life. My biological dad, abused me all the time. He cussed me, hit me, got drunk and high in front of me, pinched me, made me eat salt on my ice cream, threatened to take me away from my mom and worst of all had me court ordered at the age of 7 to 7 different psychiatrists for telling what he was doing to me. To make matters worse, the cops would not help me, DCFS would not help me, and the family court judge forced me to visit him. They accused my mom of PAS and munchausen syndrome. They would not listen to me. It was awful. I have not seen my dad in 4 years and since moving to AZ, he has started in on my mom again, taking her to court to have her thrown in jail for contempt for me not visiting with him. Why would I visit with someone who beats me up and when I finally fight back, the cops are going to put me in a detention home.
My name is john and im 17, i live in south carolina with my dad..ok heres the story. I recently dropped out of school because i made some bad choices the earlier part of the semester and my grades are irrecoverable. I know i messed up and i take responsibilty for that. Anyways,im going back to school in August because i want my diploma, i didnt quit because i was lazy i took a brief vacation to gather myself. well i have a job now i work full time at piggly wiggly. Prior to dropping out my father told me if i did that that i would have to pay for my own rent, water bill, light bill, car insurance, gas, everything i needed money for i would have to pay...and hes keeping me grounded while he is MAKING me stay here and pay him, so its like im paying to be punished. i would like to move out of the house, but what i really wanna know is if it is legal for him to make me pay him me not being emancipated, im goin crazy, thanks!
