You would need to get legally emancipated by the courts. This is easier if you have parental permission. If you don't, you could still try contacting a local attorney. If there is physical abuse contact the police immediately.

You could take this issue to court and do what you can to be legally emancipated before the age of 18, and you'd be able to live wherever you wanted to.

If you want to get emancipated but both parents will dissagree is having a dad who is an alcoholic has anger problems and depression and being emotionally abused by both parents a good enough reason?

Talk to Family Services or Social Services, whichever it is called in your state. They can determine your situation. Unless you reach the age of majority, you would not be emancipated, but come under the supervision of Family Services, likely in a foster home. To be totally emancipated, you would need to prove to a judge with evidence that you have been abused, and that you are mature enough to live on your own. Emancipation is highly unlikely - but being removed from your parents by the courts is possible. I feel sad about your situation and I am praying for you.
