Let me tell you my situation.... I'm 16 years old and wont be 17 tell october 31, Well my dad got custody of me when i was 14 yrs old. I'm now 16 and my dad still has custody but I live with my grandparents. My 15 year old sister and I came to live with my grandparnets 3 months ago when my stepmom accussed us of trying to poison her. Ever since I've lived with my dad there had been nothing but problems and I was glad to get out, but I don't want to live with my grandparents because its not really a "stable enviornment." My grandfather has his own business so theres different people coming in and out all the time plus two of my uncles stay here, one is mentally slow and the other is a recovering meth user. I told my dad that I wanted to move back in with my mother but he wont let me. I told him that when I turned 17 I could legally move out and he told me that he talked to his lawyer and he said that if I were to move out I'd I have to live completely on my own. Is this true or is he lying? Can I go live with my mom and that be legal, and she wont be breaking the law? Or could I move in with close friends of the family?
