Yes, in most instances the minor will need to petition the court for emancipation rights; in some states this is referred to as "Relief of Disability of Age of a Minor." Only a few states have established grounds and procedures for the filing of an emancipation decree. The other option is for the parents to petition the proper court of venue to be voluntarily relieved of their parental obligations.
