A Social Worker from Family Court in Philadelphia gave me the following facts: A 16 year old in PA can be emancipated under the following conditions: 1). The child has to be attending school. (The legal drop out rate for school in PA is 17 3/4 years of age). 2). The child has to have a part-time job. 3). The child has to have a checking account. 4). The child has to prove that he/she can pay their own living expenses. I have recently discovered since I wrote this answer that a child in PA is legally allowed to leave school when they are 16 years old, not 17 and 3/4 years old.
