legally speaking- yes, you can. if you get married, then you are alound to leave. if your household is very hard to live in then you can leave. as long as the judge sees that it IS in your best interest to leave home, then yes. you will be able to be emancipated. i am actually in the same predicament. a friend and i are 16 and planning ahead to see what we can do to get out of our homes as soon as possible [hopefully at the age of 17.] you would need a well paying job, and you might want to look for a job that provides you with health insurance, as well as a home/apartment with utilities provided. i wish you luck on your quest to leave home. -matthew

Moving out does not emancipate you. In New York you must be 18 to move out without permission.

New York is one of 15 states without an Emancipation Statute. Which means you will not be able to become emancipated. If you are not safe, contact social services so they can get you to a safe place.

If you have parental permission. Until you are an adult, 18 in New York, your parents are responsible for you. That includes determining where you live.

Age will not matter, as New York is one of 15 states without an Emancipation Statute. Which means you will not be able to become emancipated. If you are not safe, contact social services so they can get you to a safe place.

There is no official procedure in New York. If you don't get any financial assistance from your parents and your parents say they will give up their parental rights, you can be emancipated.

The state of New York does not have an emancipation statue. In New York, whether or not a minor is emancipated depends on the facts of the situation. Generally, a person is considered to be emancipated if: (1) he or she is married (2) he or she has joined the military (3) he or she is 16 or older, is self supporting, and resides independently from his or her parents However, in order to reside independently from your parents, they have to agree to allow it. If you leave home without their permission, they can report you as a runaway and have you picked up by the authorities and returned home.

A 17 year old child that is on probation can not be emancipated in New York state. To become emancipated, a minor needs to prove that he is legally responsible, have income, continue school, and be able to provide for his own housing and food from his earned income.

Yes. By law they are required to be present during the court proceedings.

Of course there is. A minor does not have the right to decide where they live. Until you become a legal adult, your parents make that decision. The exception would be if the minor has been emancipated in some manner such as marriage (which requires parental consent).

Generally, no. The age of majority in New York is 18. Until you reach the age of majority, or are otherwise legally emancipated, you need your parents' or guardian's permission to move out. Legal emancipation is somewhat easier in New York than many other states. If you don't get any financial assistance from your parents and your parents say they will give up their parental rights, you can be emancipated, with no legal procedure. The state of New York does not have an emancipation statue. You could be considered to be emancipated if you are 16 or older, self supporting, and reside independently from your parents. But the key is that your parents have to allow it. If you leave home without their permission, they can report you as a runaway and have you picked up by the authorities and returned home.

In New York, Q. 1.2 Who can be considered an Emancipated Minor? Although there is no court proceeding in New York to have a young person declared an Emancipated Minor, New York Law recognizes the status of emancipation and the rights of emancipated minors. To determine whether a young person is emancipated, the following factors are critical: * The youth must be living apart from his/her parents; * The youth must be self supporting (may be receiving public benefits or child support if required by court order); * The youth is not in need/receipt of foster care; * The youth is living beyond the custody and control of the parent; * The youth is over the age of 16.

You are all ready there and considered an adult . The moment you turned 18 you were emancipated.

It depends on your state. In most states, you need to go through a procedure with the courts and have a judge approve it. In a few states you don't need to go to court. For example, in New York if you don't get any financial assistance from your parents and your parents say they will give up their parental rights, you can be emancipated, with no legal procedure. Contact a family lawyer in your local area.

No, you will need to wait until you are 18, get parental consent, or get legally emancipated. Emancipation is easier in New York than in some states. If you don't get any financial assistance from your parents and your parents say they will give up their parental rights, you can be emancipated. There is no official procedure.

Albany is a city and not a state but it is the State Capital of New York State.

In the New York state you are required to pay child support until the child reaches the age of 21. This may stop if you can prove to the court that the child is emancipated, not living with parents and has a source of income, in the military or married. How one goes about this, I have no idea.

No, the legal age of majority for the state is 18. A minor who becomes pregnant or has a child is not considered automatically emancipated except in the state of Wisconsin.
