If the minor resides in a state where parental permission is required for them to be emancipated and the parents are opposed to the action, emancipation is not possible. Even in states that do not require parental permission the parent(s), legal guardian or an "interested party" (grandparent, counselor, teacher, etc.) can file an objection to the emancipation and present testimony as to why it should not be allowed. The legal procedure for the emancipation of minor is not a simple process as is sometimes claimed; it can be expensive and complexed. The few states that have established emancipation statutes also have exceptions included, such as parental permission and legal representation being required and so forth. Even if the minor meets all the requirements the decision belongs to the presiding judge and very few judges grant emancipation decrees.
