Florida like most states that have emancipation laws has stringent requirements. The state law pertaining to early emancipation is titled "Removal of The Disabilities of Non-Age" (Chapter 743). The minor must be at least 16 years of age, and (paraphrasing) the emancipation petitionmust be filed by the minor's natural parent(s) or legal guardian, if there is no such person, it must be filed by a Guardian Ad Litem (court appointed legal representative).

No you don't automatically get emancipated because you are pregnant or have a child in any state.

No, they are not emancipated. Having a child does not change the age of adulthood.

A minor must be at least 16 in order to petition for emancipation in Florida.

You must be 16 and the paperwork has to be filed by the minor

In the state of Florida a minor must be at least 16 in order to be emancipated. Even once they meet the age requirement, a minor who has been determined to be mentally unstable is not going to be able to get emancipated.

If you are emancipated, your parents really can control this decision or the money that you will spend on it. So, yeah I think that if you can afford it, your emancipated and you have an idea of a place to stay, sure. you can.

Yes when you get emancipated, turn 18 or with parents permission.

As far as i know the 2 main factors in being emancipated are having a steady job and a place to live.

No. Having a child does not emancipate a minor in any state.

Yes, if you fill the criteria. Ask your guardian to fill out the petition to the court.

No. A 15-year-old cannot petition for emancipation in FL (too young)

im not 100% sure about florida, but in most of the U.S. you need to be emancipated OR have parental backing to move out under 18.

User Avatar

yes but the whol3 thing about emancipation its a big contradiction. because you need parental concent to be emancipated

If you are not using an attorney, it does not cost much at all to get emancipated in Citrus County. You will just have to pay the fling fee for the documents and that price varies per county.

There is no requirement that a parent pay for college unless there is a support agreement in place. And given that they are emancipated, they are supposed to be on their own and no longer need any help from the parents..
