In states that have emancipation laws pertaining to minors the minimum age for filing a petition is 16. It is a misconception that the process is simple and an emancipation decree is always awarded by the court. The reality is it is seldom done even in states where all the specified requirements are met. Without knowing the state in which you live it is not possible to be more specific. If you are in a situation where abuse and/or neglect is the issue you should contact state social services for assistance. Any of following numbers are agencies that will be able to assist you, Youth Crisis Hotline 1-800-448-4463, Youth Emergency Services 1-800-899-5437, National Child Abuse Hotline 1-800392-3738.

Not at that young an age. You have to be 16 to apply for emancipation.

You need emancipation first, then move out. The courts will decide if you are old enough to get emancipated, they have a minimum age (15 in many states) but it doesn't mean you can get it. If they feel you are irresponsible, then they will deny you emancipation.

There is no requirement that they be emancipated. Until they are 18 they remain the responsibility of the parents.

can a minor in the state of Missouri be emancipated with parental permission at the age of 15

User Avatar

Proving to the courts that you could take care of yourself would help. Actually, it would be a strict requirement. Nevertheless, 15 is very young. You will have a hard time getting emancipated. Try to work it out with your parents. If there is abuse, seek help immediately.

Depends on your local/state laws but no judge will emancipate a 15yo minor with a child just so she can move in with her boyfriend. To be emancipated you will have to prove you can pay your own bills, have a job, a place to live etc. If allowed in your state you might be allowed to marry and get emancipated that way but at 15 you usually need court permission to do so and they often find 15 too young unless there are certain circumstances.

Colorado deems persons 18 years of age to be adults, but children 15 years of age may apply to be "emancipated juveniles."

A 15 year old cannot become emancipated. In Canada you have to be at least 16 before you can be emancipated.

User Avatar

No, the legal age of majority is 18. You would need parental consent or to be legally emancipated in order to move out. At 15 this is unlikely.

{| |- | No, it isn't likely. Being a parent, or being pregnant, has no bearing on your ability to support yourself and your child. Only about half the states allow you to get emancipated. Of those most require you to be at least 16 to get emancipated. |}

At age 15 it is probably not possible. The laws vary and many states do not have emancipation statutes. Those that do require the minor to be at least 16. California allows someone as young as 12 to be emancipated, but they have to be able to support themselves.

User Avatar

that person before me didnt know anything im 15 and im emancipated because im pregnant i was 14 when i first got emancipated and yeah i live in Utah. Although you will go back to a minor after the child is born unless you get married while you are emancipated. Just talk to your doctor if you are and he/she will tell you all you need to know.

No a 15 year old can not be emancipated in Iowa. A child must be 16 years old in order to be emancipated in Iowa.

Typically, no. In most states it is 18 years of age or older.

There is not much of a chance at age 15. The laws vary and many states do not have emancipation statutes. Those that do require the minor to be at least 16. California allows someone as young as 12 to be emancipated, but they have to be able to support themselves.
