In most situations u must be able to support urself, be out of

school, and/or be married. You don't have to be married but in some

situation it may help. The older u are the easier it is. It is

difficult for a 16 yr old to be amancipated but if u wanna try u

must talk to a lawyer. * Illinois does not have emancipation

procedures for minors. Nor can a minor retain legal counsel. When

legal counsel is needed by a minor person a the court appoints a

Guardian Ad Litem.
