Children are not "emancipated" from child support. They are "entitled" to financial support by the non-custodial parent.

In general, children become emancipated by leaving their parent(s)' house and becoming self-supporting. Child support is usually not due for an emancipated child.

Can a child emancipate himself in Washington state?

A child may not emancipate themselves simply by making a statement. The courts in Washington State will ultimately be the deciding factor. If you are a child under the age of 18 and can prove you are able to sustain self support you may ask the courts to deem you emancipated. If you are dependent upon the support of a parent, custodial or noncustodial you are generally not eligible for emancipation. Hope this helps.
