    Ok, Im 16. I have been making steady income Online $2k a week, for the past 4 months. I now, am sick of living with my parents because they want and are trying to force me to quit making money. I think this is absurd, and refuse. I have been looking into hiring a lawyer to represent me in court. Part of the thing is I have to demosntrate I can financially support myself. Im not sure how to explain MMO Blackhat style. I do: WHitehat Sales Pages. Offline Membership Sites, Viral Membership Sites...Egay Replica Sales and CPA Blackhat. Within a few months I think I will hit 5k a week. I WANT TO MOVE OUT. This is reasonable right?

    Higher a lawyer against your parents? Wow that's absurd, don't even think about doing that. I would move out to show that you're serious about what you're doing.

    Even if your parents are complete dicks, they clearly raised you well to be doing what you're doing.

    Listen to your parents, don't let money ruin the relationship... you'll regret it sooner than later. I recommend you sit down and talk, and let that be the extent of your actions. I'm not a parent but I have parents, I'd be devastated if my child slapped me in the face by putting me before court, especially me raising you and providing this well-being to even acquire prosperity.

    I can't believe i just read this. First, no lawyers. Don't sue your parents. Second, they probably think you are breaking the law with your income. Show them everything but the blackhat cpa stuff. It seems that most of what you do is blackhat and any missunderstanding individual would take this as criminal or unethical. Maybe bring home some lobsters and steaks and show them that what are doing isn't ILLEGAL. Against TOS, maybe, but at least you aren't dealing drugs.

    -- looking back i really didn't give any advise. But I am drinking beer. Forgive me ;)

    Don't risk future relationships over cash. When you start spending money you haven't earned yet, it has a way of disappearing out from under you. Clearly your work is effecting your life and they are concerned so listen to them objectively. Why not just outsource most of your work and make less of a profit...then everyone wins.

    Very thin ice here. Yes, you can file for emancipation, but it is rarely granted, even if you can prove financial responsibility. And, being 16, if you try to move out, you can be classified as a runaway, and get tossed into the juvenile detention system.

    Depending on your state of residency, you might need to talk to a family court attorney, and see what your options are, but, I'm afraid they might be very few.

    (Now, before I get flamed for talking shit, I do have a little basis in my knowledge. I am a former police officer, and have seen this happen before. I walked away from law enforcement because I got tired of the politics.)

    Best of luck to you.

    As a parent myself, I say cut them some slack and open a dialog with them about the issues they are having. They may have some fears about how you're spending your time and want you to concentrate on school ... hardly unreasonable, for a parent. But I'm just guessing here.

    Plus, they might already know that money isn't everything. Get a clue about that.

    Why not approach them, as a business person, and cut a deal? Work out the issues, negotiate your position and make the necessary adjustments so that you can continue to grow your business and your business education while seeing to your teenaged needs and assuaging their fears.

    Your parents aren't trying to make you miserable, believe it or not. They don't want you to fail. They're trying to enable you to make the best choices and have the best advantages and opportunities. Later in life you'll find yourself very lucky to have anyone around you with your best interests in mind.

    Consider it a marketing challenge. Make it a win-win for both you and your parents. Will you have to make a compromise? Perhaps, but that's business so get used to it.

    Propose a negotiation, substantiate your position and its value and make a deal. They only want you to succeed, so use that to your advantage while you can.

    Good luck!

    Haha, the way you phrase things in that little paragraph sounded like an arrogant adult, which leaves me to believe that you are a little mature (and smart) for your age and might be able to sit down for a while and understand that you're not ready for what you're getting into.

    There's no way you're that ignorant and making so much money in a week, or is it getting that easy now?

    i'd like to hear what the parents are actually doing/saying that is causing this problem.
    they probably suspect the worst because they don't know about the internet.

    jeesh, take it easy there , taking your parent to court. so you are making some money, big deal. you are 16 mate, chill out for a couple more years, cut your folks some slack. You obviously have a head on your shoulders if you are making good money, as was previously mentioned, look on it as a challenge. There is definitely a way to get a win win situation here.

    Put yourself in their shoes for 5 minutes and that will help you work out what you need to do.

    Sounds like you are handling yourself money wise so I congratulate you on that at 16. Why are they trying to force you to stop making money?

    Unless you are failing in school or something that is unreasonable to stop you but I agree with everyone else here, try and work it out with them.

    That's ridiculous. Until you turn 18 (or the legal adult age in your country), your parents own your ass. All that shit they did for you when you were little, and now you're making some money and think you don't need to abide by the rules anymore? Sounds like your parents didn't beat you enough.

    Basically, they believe this is all a scam despite the countless exa,ples and proof of my money, I even bought them dinner to a resturant, and they still think its un trustworthy. idk what to do. They are stubborn. and you are right, but theyw ant to take away my computer and internet access(which i myself pay for) Can they legally do that? But, its not right, I want to utilize my moeny and hard work, i mean it took me three years to get to this point and it is impossible for me to just "let it go". Im not a brat either. Its just to kill yourself working over something and get it then someonet ell you throw it away is absurd to say the least.

    Yes they can. You're not an adult, no matter how much money you make.

    Also, don't take this the wrong way, but you need to work on your grammar. I'm not one of those grammar nazis, but this isn't an AOL chat room, many of the people you talk to are serious businessmen. You look very unprofessional with grammar like that, and if you plan on making a living on the internet, that's something you should work on.

    Just trying to help.

    Just talk to your parents. When I was making money online my mom thought I was doing something online that I shouldn't be doing. I explained every little bit and detail and she now fully understands and she wants to start making money online like me. Don't move you and ruin your relationship with your parents. I am 20 and moved out 7 months ago. My parents helped me out a bit when I went through tough financial times and without them I would be really screwed and possibly homeless.

    Why do you need permission from parents to move out? Just find a place to stay and move out.

    If your parents threaten you that they will bring authorities and bring you home with force, you just threaten them that you will fill complaints of child abuse, and this is the reason you moved out.
