Per California Family Code §7507:
“The abuse of parental authority is the subject of judicial cognizance in a civil action brought by the child, or by the child's relative within the third degree, or by the supervisors of the county where the child resides; and when the abuse is established, the child may be freed from the dominion of the parent, and the duty of support and education enforced.”Therefore, if the abuse is established, you may be freed from your abusive parents.
