Generally speaking, parents are responsible for their children until they reach the age of majority. A parent cannot simply emancipate their child, leaving that child with no means of support. However, if the child wants to be emancipated and meets the requirements for it, such as having the ability to fully support theirself, then that's different. If the child is truly beyond your control, I'd suggest that you make some phone calls--maybe to the local police deparment or the Department of Social Services-- and see if there are any programs that might provide you with some assistance. It may be possible to have the child declared a 'child in need of services' or an 'at risk youth' or something similar in which the court would intervene and attempt to help you get this child back under control. I really know very little about the requirements for these types of programs (as well as not knowing the exact details of your situation or the state that you live in), so I can't provide you with much information, but hopefully either DSS or the police deparment will be able to advise you. Good luck!
