If you are being physically abused, you should immediately call 911 at the time of the abuse. Also, tell an adult that you trust (like a teacher, doctor, police, relative, etc.). You can also call Child Protective Services at 1-888-767-2445 or Childhelp at 1-800-422-4453. See the links section of lawforkids.org for more hotlines that you can call for help.
A minor must be at least 16 years old in order to petition for emancipation.
