What is the name of your state? Ny
I have been wanting to leave my home for a while now. My mother is very abusive to me. Not physically but verbally. I also am currently employed by her to deliever newspapers. I only get paid when she wants to pay me , eventhough she agreed to pay me and my sister once a week. I'm going to turn 18 in two weeks and just want to know , If I move out of my home in NY state can my mom do anything to stop me , even if I'm a senior in high school?
