Re: how do i claim independence from parents?
The term you are looking for is Emancipation. You will need to file a petition in your local court jurisdiction and go before a judge. If you can prove that you can support yourself, live on your own without your parent's help, he may grant you emancipation from your parent's. You didn't indicate how old you are, but I can tell you that if your still in high school you will also need to prove to the judge that you can finish school, or at least have a stable full-time job. This is not an easy process - Lord knows there are adults out in the world that shouldn't be emancipated! (LOL!)
The judge will be looking for someone that is mature, responsible and ready to take on the role of a law abiding adult citizen.
