Not all states allow a minor to be emancipated. In some states it is necessary to have the parental permission before the court will accept an emancipation petition from the minor. In all states that allow emancipation of minors, the parents, guardian, or any qualified "interested party" is given the opportunity to contest any emancipation petition filed by any minor.

well.... i dont know the exact stages but ..... ithink the parent has to be very irresponsible and will not take care of the child in question but if the parent is responsible then the judge since you have to go to court will say that the parent will have to take care of the child and if the parent or parents are unknown the judge will probablly say that "i agree" and you get emancipated and you have to have the oarents sign a form of some sort to let you get emancipated and telling the judge that they will not take care of you any longer and the oyfriend cannot have any criminal record if he is older than the child in question

What are the benefits of being emancipated as a parent if you're a minor?

Same as if you weren't a parent: you get to decide everything yourself and don't have to do what your parents tell you to do. Whether you are emancipated or not, you are always the one making decisions regarding your child and you are the one paying for your child. Of course the negative is a lot more if you ask me. You will have the stress of not being taken care of and you have to prove that you can hold down a job, go to school, pay bills etc. It's all on you. The court rarely grant emancipation. One of the requirements is for instance that you have lived apart form your parents for a long time and that is rarely the way it is unless there's a problem already.

There are some legal issues with moving out from your parents. There are different laws from each state but I do know a Minor can become emancipated from their parents. However you will have to check with your state to see what the laws and requirements are regarding becoming separated from your parents. (you probably can just google "emancipated from parents" and "your state's name"). To do it legally you'll probably need to fill out a form and see a judge about it (kinda like changing your last name) however as I said I do not know that laws of your state so it could be different
