Florida emancipation action is referred to as "Removal of Disability of Non-Age", (Florida Family Code 7000-7002, Chapter 743).The minor's parent(s), legal guardian or guardian ad litem must file the petition in the name of the minor in the circuit court of the city or county where they reside. The minor must be at least 16-years of age, provide evidence they are self-supporting (public or family assistance is not acceptable), prove to the judge by submitting the required supporting documents that he or she can live independently without adult involvement or financial assistance. Emancipation does not change the effect of laws which restrict behavior by a minimum age, such as being able to purchase and/or use alcohol.
