Probably not. If you have a department of children and family services in your state, call them if you're in a dire situation. If you're just antsy to get out of your parents' home because you're 17 and can't wait to be 18, stick it out. It's a lot tougher to live on your own than you think. Not legally. But, here is something the person might wish to consider; even though a state does not have established grounds and procedures for emancipation action it does not mean said person cannot file such a petition. The interested party might wish to contact the circuit court clerk in the city or county where they reside for specific information.

Emancipation laws vary by state, and not all states have an emancipation statute. You need to check the laws of the state that you reside in. You may be able to file without your parents knowing about it, but they will find out, because the court will notify them. * No. In the few US states that allow emancipation of minors, parents and all persons with "just cause" must be informed of the action and given the opportunity to contest it at the judicial hearing.

No it is not possible to get emancipation in secret. The court will want to know how they feel about it before granting emancipation.

If they have the permission of their parents or guardians. The parents are responsible for the child. They can decide where the child lives.

Not without parents permission or emancipation by the court.

Yes, but you cannot own property without emancipation.

Not in most places. Until you reach the age of majority, you are the responsibility of your parents. They get to decide where you can live.

Tennessee does not have an emancipation statute. Which means no, it isn't going to happen. And one of the standard requirements to obtain emancipation in those states that do have one is that the parents have to be notifiec.

Emancipation is the act of a judge and a court. Parental approval is not necessary.

Emancipation is granted by a court, usually without regard to the desire of the parent. Emancipation IS NOT given because someone has a poor home life. That person is likely to be placed in foster care. Emancipation is granted to persons who can perform as an adult, have the capacity to care for themselves, and have a reason to be considered an adult early.

The parents do not have to consent for emancipation. However, the court will take their desires into consideration. And you have to be in a state that allows emancipation.

You can, but only if you are at the emancipation age required by your particular state.

User Avatar

The age at which an individual may leave their parents home without requiring their parents permission is known as the "age of emancipation." The age of emancipation varies between countries, and in the US varies between states. In most US states, the age of emancipation is 18.

If you have parents permission, you don't have emancipation cause. Emancipation means being freed from bondage or imprisonment - with permissions being given, one is certainly not being held against their will. The other view possibly here is that the parents do not want to accept responsibility for your being once you leave their home.

With parental consent, they can move out. Emancipation means the parents are no longer responsible for them.
