The state does not have established grounds or procedures pertaining to early emancipation of minors. The states legal age statute and pertinent information concerning the legal status of minors can be found at http://www.legis.state.ia.us (Iowa Code Title 6, Subtitle 5,Chapter 232.2).

Update: As of August, 2009, new legislation allowing teens to petition the court for emancipated status is untried and unfamiliar to even most family law attorneys. There is no form yet for filing the action.
