Speak Up! - View Question #22601
printer friendly version
I will be graduating in May 2007, but I wont be 18 for another year. My parents won't let me leave the house unless I am emancipated and I would like to move out of state and start college in MO in the fall. Would the judge allow me to be emancipated since I will have a high school diploma and am looking for further education? If I were to live with my 19 year old boyfriend, could that get him in trouble, since I'm under 18?
