I need advice, concerning legal matters and Child Services.?

I'm stuck in a house I don't want to be in, and my parents are going through a bad divorce because my father has been an alcoholic for all my life, 12+ years. My father is prone to violence and has jokingly threatened to hurt/kill my mother, my sister, and me. I had to call child services to put me into foster care until my mother was released from jail because I was too frightened to return to my dad's house... Currently, there's a protective order against my dad, he's in too bad a state health wise to go to work anymore, so he can't pay for a lawyer, so my parents divorce is being postponed, so i can't really change any of that.. but the parts I need help with are centered around Child Protective Services. I have to meet with a council worker from George Junior Republic on a weekly basis. Basically, she makes me look at college and financial bullcrap that I DON'T CARE about. She signed me up to take the SAT and ACT, when I don't care about any of it and don't even want to complete High School at this point. How do I get them out of my life? Once a month I have to meet with a different social worker, my case manager from CPS. A while ago, my aunt and grandmother on my father's side (they're staying in my old house, taking care of my father) went through my room where the majority of my belongings are. They found old journals of mine, where i wrote about wanting to k*********f and cutting. They photo-copied my journal papers, and took them to my social worker. My questions about this are, Is there any law for invasion of privacy that I can hold against my aunt and grandmother? They do not legally own the house, nor do they legally live there. And are there any laws keeping me from going back into my old house and taking my stuff back? Thank you for reading it all, please answer if you think you can help. First off, I'm too young to go to jail, and I don't see how I'd end up there by continueing a negative cycle. I'm simply asking if there's any legal way i could my stuff back. You don't know the details, you don't know what's Best for me; I'm asking for knowledge about laws involving invasion of privacy, NOT what you think I should do involving going to college and the advice of my social workers, kay? I'll decide what to do involving college. Also, don't tell me whether or not I NEED those things at my old house. Apparently you've never been suddenly seperated from every object you've ever had, left with nothing, and thrown into foster care. It's only natural for me to want my stuff back. I find it hard to believe that there is no law I can press against them for invading and photocopying my personal belongings, THAT is what i'm asking for. Thank you.

There is no action you can take against your relatives. You do not have a right to any of those things either. you are going to end up in jail and in big trouble if you don't stop the negative cycle you are in. You don't say why your mother is in jail right now... More
