Question: Hello,I am 15 and not turning 16 until March of 2008. I dont get along with either of my parents very well and I want to go to California to get away and just start up somewhere new. I have been looking at jobs and apartments in California for age of 16 and I could get a part time job, enought to afford an apartment, and still go to school over there. Once I turn 16 and apply to be emancipated here in Arizona, if they accept could I travel to California and still apply for jobs and school there or would I need to contact a Court and Judge there? Thanks for your time, Joe
