Is it possible for a 14-year-old to be emancipated from just one parent if they are divorced?

I'm not sure what you're asking. Is it that you want to be emancipated from one parent so that you can live with the other? If that's the case, then it's not an emancipation issue, it's a custody issue between the parents. And very few judges will consider anyone for emancipation under the age of 16, even if emancipation is allowable in the state.

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.

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.

If you are 18 or emancipated it is possible. It rarely happens.

It will depend on the state or country involved. It is possible to get emancipated in some places at 16, if they can support themselves.

If the underage divorced mother is below the age of emancipation in her state, the fact that she is a mother does not automatically confer emancipation on her. Therefore, her parent can legally make decisions for her until such time as she reaches legal age, or becomes emancipated.
