    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.

    I was taken out of my mothers care when I was 12. Then I moved in with my maternal grandmother, and it didn't work out for me there either. I currently live in a foster home and I would like to become emancipated. I heard it is a hard process but I am going to try. You should too!
