The state does not have set emancipation statues. Due to the unusual age of majority the law does allow petitions of emancipation rights to be filed by a minor who is at least seventeen years of age. The general requirements are that the minor has completed the school year in which they reached the age of 17, are gainfully employed,live independently from their parents or legal guardian, and can provide supporting evidence to the court of being able to conduct their life without another adult's involvement.
