yes a fifteen year old girl can be emaciated from her parents for GOOD reasons. they would however have to be very good reasons and some alternate form of care or monetering would have to be set up. You can probably lose the parents you have now (if you have enough money for a very good laywer) but youll probably have to pick up a new set.

AnswerOnce a minor is emancipated, there is no 'alternate form of care or monitoring'. A minor does not have to 'pick up another set of parents' to become emancipated. If they 'get' new parents, then that�s not emancipation, that�s a custody/guardianship transfer (which basically isn�t going to happen unless their parents are proven to be unfit).

Emancipation means a minor is on their own. They are responsible for their own actions. They are also responsible for paying their own bills (rent/utilities/food/clothing/medical expenses/etc) and will have to prove to the court that they are capable of doing that. Your average 15-year-old would not be capable of doing that since child labor laws greatly restrict the number of hours that they�re allowed to work. Which is one reason that most states (with the exception of CA and possibly one other?) require that a minor be at least 16 in order to petition for emancipation.

No. An emancipated minor is required to support themselves through gainful employment and not by their parents or public assistance.

Emancipated minors are minors who have been legally released from the control of their parents.

If your parents give you permission or if you are emancipated. If you are not emancipated, your parents will have to sign any legal documents, such as a lease, for you.

Emancipation is done by petitioning a court. Parental permission is not necessary.

You don't get emancipated just because you are pregnant. You are the guardian of your child but your parents are the guardians of you.

No. The requirements for being getting emancipated is that the teen can handle these things themselves.

You have to get emancipated, but you might want to think hard before doing so. In order to get emancipated your parents have to sign off giving you permission.

Some people get emancipated to become their own legal guardian. A teenager could become emancipated from their parents or guardians if proper care was not being given.

User Avatar

you need to be 14 to be emancipated. yes it is possible, but you need to make that clear when you state your case, and to the parent you want to 'keep'. 16 to be emancipated from both.

You have to be emancipated or be an adult. Until you turn 18, your parents make the decisions. Only then can you move out.

User Avatar

There is no requirement that they be emancipated. Until they are 18 they remain the responsibility of the parents.

If the minor (key fact) in question is not emancipated and his/her parents are his/her legal guardians, then no. If the minor (key fact) in question is not emancipated and his/her parents are his/her legal guardians, then no.
