    Question: Who can apply to be emancipated in Arizona?

    Answer: You must be sixteen or seventeen-years-old to apply for emancipation. You have to be a resident of Arizona and be able to prove that you can support yourself. The court will give you information about the risks and consequences of being emancipated as well as your rights and obligations as an emancipated minor. You cannot apply for emancipation if you are a ward of the court or in the custody of a state agency.

    Even before you get emancipated, right away, you need to talk to Social Security about having someone besides your father be the one who gets your social security. This can be a social services agency or a person. If this money is available to you, you may be self supporting for purposes of the emancipation law. At least it will be used for your benefit.
