I am 17 years old and I live in Missouri where the legal age

Hello, I am 17 years old and I live in Missouri where the legal age of adulthood is 17 and I am able to move. I am currently visiting relatives in California and I have debated not returning home. I live in an abusive household and I am not able to do the things I need to do for school. I am going to be a senior in high school this year and I plan on going to college and becoming a doctor. Leaving home is the best option for my future. My parents are very controlling and against me leaving. I would be attending school and living in another state without their consent. I am going to be 18 in a few months. I have few questions.JA: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I would be attending high school in either Pennsylvania or CaliforniaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: My aunt has talked to a couple. They said I could try to get emancipated but that could possibly take a long time and I'd be 18 by the time it was passed. They also said it is possible that if I were to leave, the police wouldn't do anything since I am so close to 18. I'm more worried about how I will sign and register for things that require parental consent.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: How much would it cost per hour?JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to.Customer: Where are you located? Could this lawyer still help me even though he is not located in my state?
