Theoretically a person who is at least 16-years of age can file a petition for emancipation rights in the appropriate court in the state in which they live. The reality is such petitions are very seldom granted, and those few that are can be modified or rescindable at the discretion of the court. Emancipation of minors is not as simple nor as permanent as it is often presumed to be.

Can you sign legal papers if you have a power of attorney?

Yes as long as the powers set forth in the POA extend to legal matters at hand. For example, some states had held that an agent under a POA did not have the right to sell the principal's real estate unless the POA said it specifically, sometimes even by requiring the address of the house to be recited in the POA. In that case, the agent could not sign legal papers selling the house of the principal.
