I’m afraid for the safety of all children in the home while parents are away every weekend and coming home drunk. One of the children being looked after is handicapped. On occasion they can leave all of them home alone without adult supervision for up to 12 hours.
I am 16, financially stable with the current job I am working and can support myself. I want to move out not due to abuse or anything just to be able to have responsibilities, my mother says she wouldn’t be mad about it but she will have to file a missing report with the police so she wouldn’t...

Whoa. Both you and your mother are asking for big time trouble if you go down that path. Your mother would be committing a criminal act (intentionally filing a false report) and you would probably end up in a juvenile protection facility (nice sounding name for jail).

Although I strongly advise you not to do it, Florida law will not prevent you from leaving home AFTER you turn 18 years old. Warning: that does not mean 17 years, 11 months; it means 18. (Being in school has nothing to do with it.)
Your inquiry is a bit vague. When you say the minor has accused the adult of battery, do you mean the adult is now under criminal investigation or has been charged? Or you mean the minor just made an accusation to that adult or to someone who is not the police? Your inquiry is also vague as to...Read more »
