The state does have emancipation laws, Oregon Juvenile Code 419B "Dependency", Section 419.B.552 Emancipation of a Minor. Doing your own research should help you understand a little better how complicated most legal procedures can be. However, if you understand these codes then perhaps you should consider a career in the legal profession, ( I mean that in all sincerity not sarcasm). Unfortunately you must have the Oregon statues to understand the codes. ORS 419.B.558 gives you the requirements needed to qualify for emancipation. You can look up this code online or go to the library and look the code up in the 'Crimanal Code of Oregon'. The internet would probably be easier since the statues do have a habit of changing consistantly every six months or so.
