You can petition your local court to become emancipated. That basically means that you (a minor with limited legal rights) gain all the rights/responsibilities of an adult.
You really do need a lawyer to see you through this process. If you’d like to schedule a telephone or email legal consultation, please do not hesitate to contact me. Please email your inquiries at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you a Questionnaire. Or you may reach me by telephone at 1-800-408-5818.
