    Speak Up! - View Question #18499


    printer friendly version

    Question: What do I have to show the judge if I want to be emancipated?

    Answer: At the hearing it is your responsibility to convince the judge that it is in your best interests to be emancipated. The court will consider the following:

    • your wishes and your parents’ opinion regarding emancipation
    • your financial situation and whether you are independent from your parents – proof of employment or other means of support, including housing and health care
    • your education and success at school
    • whether you have a criminal record
    • whether you understand the risks of emancipation

    You must also show that you have either been living on your own for three consecutive months, or why living at home is not a healthy or safe environment, or provide written consent for emancipation from your parents or guardian.

    My friend needs to be emancipated from his father greatly, for a life and death issue. His father does not listen to him and can't see how much pain his son is in. My friends mother is a no show who hates him along with her family and his dad's family has nothing but problems and have never really been a part of his life so he has no where to go, but he's afraid to try and get emancipated because he thinks it will take to long. I need advice on how to help him.
