    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.

    Alright things for the past year have been pretty rocky. Nothing abusive or anything has been happening just my parents and I get into so many fights and its just hard. We've done counseling and it didn't seem to work. Now I have been thinking and researching about emancipation. The question I've been having in mind is that can a kid that isn't being abused but wants to get emancipated in order to control his own finances, go to school, and work. Would this be able to hold in court. For the past year my parents have wanted me out because of all the arguing.
