It would depend upon the state in which you reside. Most states do not have emancipation laws but some will accept a petition for the action by a person who is at least sixteen and can prove "just cause." Generally a person can represent themselves in any legal action in any court, however, there are a few states that require a minor have legal counsel when it concerns emancipation or other established rights of minor children.

If there is abuse or neglect involved, you should contact your local Social Services office or the police. You can become emancipated with a court order; if you do not become emancipated because of the abuse/neglect you will be ordered to live with another family member or someone else appointed by the court.

A lawyer can help, but it is a court that issues a restraining order.

A court order of emancipation must consider all persons with a parental interest in order to be valid.

Emancipation requires a court order. Otherwise it is not a legal emancipation.

Contrary to popular belief, simply becoming a parent does not make a person emancipated. Generally speaking, the only way to become an emancipated minor is by order of the court (and not all states have emancipation laws), getting (legally) married, or joining the military (which minors need parental consent to do).

With a court order, yes, they can.

In Texas, you have to be at least 16-years-old in order to petition the court for emancipation. http://www.bostoncoop.net/lcd/emancipation/texas.html

If you are 16 or older you can petition for emancipation. There will be an investigation into the situation within 30 days. The court will then determine if an order of emancipation should be issued.

A proposed order is a preliminary form of a written order that one lawyer prepares to put in writing an oral decision by a judge. If there is a motion, say for an order to compel the other party to appear at a deposition, the court makes a ruling from the bench verbally. Normally, whichever lawyer won on the motion prepares the proposed form of order. It is always possible that the lawyer preparing the order makes some mistake in wording or leavies something out that should be in, or adds something that shouldn't be in. In order to avoid this, most courts require the lawyer preparing the order to send a proposed form of order to the court and the other lawyer for review. Tho other lawyer has a right to object to the wordin. If no objection is made or if one is made and dealt with by the court, the proposed form of order is either signed as is or modified to become the final form of the order.

A lawyer has to file a motion with the court in order to proceed with a case in any direction.

They should be able to provide an emancipation order from a court or a marriage license.

Not unless they are emancipated or have a court order.

At the age of 18, or when he becomes emancipated by marriage or court order.

{| |- | Ask for a copy of their emancipation papers. If they are going to sign a contract, they should be able to produce them. Without the court order, they are not emancipated. |}

It means that a lawyer has returned to the court that issues the order and presented reasons why the court should change the content of the order. If the court agrees, the order is amended (changed) by the judge who originally issued it.

As a lawyer i have to practice various laws in court in order to serve my clients from prison time. I have to be honest to my clients.

There is usually no reason to be emancipated once you reach the age of majority. And in most states that is 18. So either you live in a state were the age is over 18 or there is a court order. Consult an attorney for specific details in your state.

16 Years of age is the limit. There are four (4) ways to become emancipated under Georgia law:When a minor is legally married, the minor is automatically considered emancipated.When a minor turn 18 years of age, the minor is automatically considered emancipated.When a minor is on active duty in the U.S. military, the minor is automatically considered emancipatedA minor can file a petition in the Juvenile Court asking for a court order stating that he or she is emancipated. The parents either must approve or minor must prove it is in best interest to be emancipated.
