If you got married at 15 in the state of Missouri and are now 16 and living in the state of Arkansas and you want a divorce will you still be emancipated or will you have to move in with your parents?

An underaged person who has been given permission to marry and does so is considered emancipated. The emancipation status does not automatically end if the marriage is dissolved. However, in unusual cases the parent(s) of the minor can petition to have emancipation rights revoked if they can show "just cause." Or a judge can rescind the emancipation status and deem the minor a ward of the court, depending upon individual circumstances. Such actions are extremely rare, generally when a minor has been legally emancipated it is a "done deal".

If you are emancipated, and at least 16, yes you can get married. Marriage is another way of getting emancipated.

If you are married, you are considered emancipated.

Yes by getting married you became emancipated and you can do what you wish. No one can force you to stay married.

If you are married, you do not need to be emancipated. Marriage makes one an adult automatically. It does not change age requirements for alcohol or tobacco.

Consult an attorney where you live to determine what is best in your circumstance. Generally speaking, you can file for divorce where you have residency regardless of where you were legally married. An attorney will help you determine the other qualifications necessary for divorce.

Of course not, you can not legally marry more than one person at a time.

Yes. Effective June 26, 2015, same-sex couples may divorce in Arkansas, providing that they meet all requirements of the divorce law.

If you are married you are emancipated. That is how it works in all states.

Not every state has emancipation laws, and I don't believe Missouri is one that does. Therefore, the only way to become emancipated is by (1) turning 18 (2) getting (legally) married (3) joining the military (which minors have to have parental consent to do).

File for divorce in the state where you currently live. The states have reciprocal agreements for these sorts of legal matters.

I'm not sure about Missouri specifically, but in most states a minor is not emancipated until either their 18th birthday, or upon mothering a child. Being pregnant does not count, the minor must have the baby to become emancipated.

User Avatar

If they are truly emancipated, yes. Note that in almost all states, getting married emancipates a minor.

THere is no limit as long as every marriage ends by a legal divorce. You can only be married to one person at a time in the United States.

User Avatar

Certainly. If you live in a state that allows emancipation, not all of them do. Most will consider you emancipated if you get married (not pregnant, married!).

User Avatar

No, they cannot do so legally, unless they have parental permission. Until they are 18 or married, the parents are responsible.

User Avatar

Yes, pursuant to a court order dated May 6, 2014, the state of Missouri will recognize a same-sex marriage performed elsewhere for the purpose of divorce in Missouri.

Your right to file for divorce is not altered by where you were married.
