Best Answer

A minor cannot be emancipated from only one parent. The act of emancipation means the minor is given legal adult status to enable said person to handle their personal and financial affairs without the necessity of adult intervention. That is defined as the minor having gainful employment in which he or she earns enough income to pay for housing, food, transportation, medical care, educational expenses and so forth. The emancipated minor will not be eligible for public assistance except under very limited conditions. In addition the court reserves the right to rescind an emancipation decree at any time before the minor reaches the state's age of majority and to remand the minor into the custody of the state. Emancipation information for the minor's state of residence can be obtained from the office of the clerk of the probate court in the county in which the minor resides.
