    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.

    Okay so for the past few months everything has been pretty hard at home. My dad and I fight alot over little things and its killing me inside. I want to get a job but my dad wont alow it I dont understand. I've only lived with my dad for a year and a half so its still pretty new but at the same time its not getting any better! I really want to get emancipated so i can be on my own and finance myself! Would this hold up in court?
