The minimum age for emancipation of a minor is 16. The minor should contact Florida Child Protective Services Hotline 1-800-962-2873 for assistance. Or if he/she believes themselves to be in danger of being physically harmed, call the local police department or 911 for immediate assistance. Other agencies that can help are National Child Abuse Hotline 1-800-392-3738, Youth Crisis Hotline 1-800-448-4463, Youth Emergency Services Hotline 1-800-899-5437, all are toll-free. Also, Teenline Online is a website staffed by teens who assist other teens in finding solutions for their problem(s). http://www.teenlineonline.org Be advised that Internet and telephone usage can easily be monitored.

Yes. You have to have parental consent to be legally emancipated, unless you are being mentally/emotionally abused, physically abused, or their living arrangements are unstable.

Not likely. They are likely to be taken in as a ward of the state. This will protect them and insure that things are done legally.

There is no requirement that a parent pay for college unless there is a support agreement in place. And given that they are emancipated, they are supposed to be on their own and no longer need any help from the parents..

A parent does not become emancipated from their children. A child can become emancipated from a parent under certain circumstances. A parent can lose custody of a child if a court finds that they are not fit to parent. Generally, this would be based on a finding of abuse, neglect or abandonment.

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.

Yes, as long as they are 16 or older. They will also have to show that they can financially take care of themselves.

A minor child should not be living on their own. If the child has been legally emancipated the parent may be excused from paying child support. Otherwise, they will be assessed if the custodial parent files a petition for child support with the court. At that time the fact of the child living on their own can be brought to the attention of the court.A minor child should not be living on their own.

Can a 16 year old girl who is pregnant and living in Florida move out without parental permission?

There are a few requirements for getting emancipated in Montana. You must be at least 16 and a Montana resident. You should be living apart from your parent or guardian and be capable of supporting yourself financially, and your parents will need to consent to the emancipation.

User Avatar

You do not need parental consent to be emancipated. But it will make it more difficult and they do have to know about it.

User Avatar

Since you have parental consent, yes. That does not relieve your parent of their responsibility to maintain you.

If a parent abuses a child it may mean that they were abused as a child.

User Avatar

Most likely will they be taken into foster care and get emancipated like everyone else at 18 but if they are closer to the age of emancipation the judge sometimes allow it. So it depends on how old they are.

User Avatar

you need to be 14 to be emancipated. yes it is possible, but you need to make that clear when you state your case, and to the parent you want to 'keep'. 16 to be emancipated from both.

User Avatar

Sorry but this doesn't seem to be a reason to be legally emancipated. If the parent is abusive or under the influence often when arguing then it is possible.

User Avatar

Being a parent does not make one an adult. Only age will make you an adult.

User Avatar

If a child is emancipated, the parent or guardian no longer has any say over the minor's life.
