http://www.cuyahogacounty.us/juvenile/faq.htm "State of Ohio does not have an emancipation law. Minor or parent is unable to file a legal action to have a minor emancipated or legally on their own and under the age of 18. There are two temporary ways in which a minor can be out of the custody of their parent. Either join any branch of the Armed Forces or marriage. However, if the marriage is dissolved or minor is discharged from the service and still under the age of 18 the custody automatically reverts back to the parent who originally had custody."

{| |- | You cannot do this in Ohio. They do not have an emancipation statute. You have to wait until the child reaches the age of 18. |}

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.

Ohio does not allow a minor to petition for emancipation. A minor in Ohio is considered emancipated if they are married or have joined the military, both of which require parental consent.

Depends on how old you are. Usually you can not apply until you are 16 but if you are abused there are foster homes ready for you.

Yes, if the 17 year old is emancipated then they are considered an adult. They can make their own decisions and get married if they want. Parents can not stop an emancipated child from doing anything, the court considered an emancipated child to be 18 years old.

If they have been emancipated, they can contract. Otherwise they need an adult to enter into the contract on their behalf.

There is no emancipation status in Ohio.

Yes, you are emancipated through the marriage. Not through the pregnancy.

No. The child is not a child anymore but emancipated so there is no need for child support.

No. In NYC a parent has to support a child until the child is 21 years old or becomes emancipated. Emancipation means a child is living separately and independently from a parent, or is self-supporting.

With parental consent. You are not emancipated because you have a child.

Yes she is emancipated by turning 18 and child support is paid until she is 21 if she goes to college.

18 years old. In some cases, older. It depends on how nice the apartment is.

Yes, in Ohio a 17 year old with a child can move out. Most places do recognize a 17 year with a child as an adult.

Yes, in some cases, a 18 year old can get emancipated in Alabama. As of June 2014, a person is considered a child until they are 19 years old.

If you're in the US... A child saying he is emancipated means nothing (I can say I'm God, but that doesn't mean I am :). If the child actually is legally emancipated, then child support ceases.
