Question by Melo: Can I Move Out and How Do I Move Out?
I am 19 yrs old, living in Connecticut. I would like to move out due to family issues.
I am financially dependent upon my parents.
I am attending college but accepting loans.
I have a minimum wage job. But not enough hours are provided. 8 hours a week.
I know I could move out since I am considered an adult. But how would I manage that financially?
What could I do? Emancipation would not work, I am no longer considered a minor.
What should I do? Advice anyone? A step by step process would be nice. Thank You.

I don’t know how well I can provide a step by step process, but I will try.
The first is save your money, totally and completely for at least a month. Save enough for maybe a constant bus fare and groceries.
Next, do you have any REALLY close friends who will understand what you’re going through? If the parents/roommates are okay with it, your parents can’t call and tell you to come back home. You’re 19.
All I can really suggest is to save your money, put some aside for personals and other then that, just help the family out with the rest of the money. Help pay for groceries, gas, etc.
I honestly don’t know much more, but I hope this helps,
