How do you get your parents to sign a form to agree to your being emancipated?

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.
