It designates that there are not laws that specifically address early emancipation pertaining to minors, therefore a minor may not directly petition the court for a emancipation decree. However, under the juvenile code a person who is at least seventeen (17) is considered an "adult". This stipulation allows a judge the option of granting emancipation rights to someone who is at least seventeen, if the circumstances warrant such action.

That a minor can not be emancipated. They have to wait until the right age.

The fact that the state may not have a specific law pertaining to emancipation does not mean that a petition to obtain early emancipation rights is not possible. Most states will allow a minor to file such action and rule on the case based on the individual circumstances. Contact the clerk of the court in the county in which you reside for more information.

There is emancipation statute in Tennessee. And your ability to get pregnant doesn't mean that you can take care of yourself. Having a child does not emancipate you.

I'm afraid Wisconsin does not have an emancipation statute. You will not be able to file for it. Being able to have a child does not mean you have the ability to take care of it.

{| |- | Indiana has no emancipation statute. Have a child does not make one an adult. Being able to have a child does not mean one can take care of the child. You still must be 18 to be considered an adult. |}

Fuatach or saoradh mean 'emancipation'.

no because the age of majority in Missouri is 18. That doesn't mean you can't move out at a younger age with your parent's actual or implicit consent, but moving out does not result in automatic emancipation.

By sunshine law, one assumes you mean open board meetings. Your governing documents may specify whether or not board meetings are open. A quick review of the Missouri statute is silent on this issue. However, your association may be incorporated and the statute under which it is incorporated may have a sunshine provision.

I think you may mean "statute". A statute is a law passed by a legislature which, itself, is comprised of elected representatives. A legislature can be either federal or state (federal or provincial in Canada).

Statute of limitations are tolled under certain circumstances. One of the most common is if the person leaves the jurisdiction of the court, such as moving to another state.

Emancipation is to separate from someone or something. Therefore, emancipation of women would be to exclude women from a particular process.

It means that there is no law to allow a minor to become emancipated. They have to wait until they reach the age of majority for that state, which is usually 18, but may be 19.

That means until you turn 18, you are the responsibility of your parents. And they can tell you what to do and where to live. You can't make the decision to emancipate yourself. But - if your parents agree to legally emancipate you, it can be done in court before a judge.

Until you reach the age of majority you are the responsibility of your parents and the only way out is through social services.

Missouri gets its name from a tribe of Sioux Indians of the state called the Missouris. The word "Missouri" often has been construed to mean "muddy water" but the Smithsonian Institution Bureau of American Ethnology has stated it means "town of the large canoes," and authorities have said the Indian syllables from which the word comes mean "wooden canoe people" or "he of the big canoe."
