The premise of emancipation is that the minor does not need adult intervention or assistance to conduct their affairs. Therefore it would not be possible to receive a decree of emancipation from only one parent. The minor must be able to provide proof of an acceptable level of income (their own, not money from a family member or friend); that will enable them to support themselves. They must have an established residence, present proof of being able to pay for utilities, food, clothing, medical care, education if applicable, transportation and so on and so on.

One exception with limitations is to allow a pregnant minor to be eligible for public benefits to receive health care. This does not mean the minor female would be allowed to live independently of parents or adult supervision.

At what age can a minor be emancipated from one parent in Colorado?

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.

What is the legal age for tattoos with a parent in Wisconsin?

You need to ensure what state the person is in when getting the tattoo. If they are in Wisconsin, Wisconsin's laws apply. If they are in another state when obtaining it, then Wisconsin's laws would not apply even if the person has one parent in Wisconsin. Some states will allow just one parent or legal guardian to be present for someone who is a minor, while some states will not allow a minor to get one at all. Check the states laws where the person will be getting the tattoo. Most states, if not all, will consider "legal age" when a person is no longer a minor or can be emancipated.
