The requirements for the granting of a decree of emancipation is established by state laws, many states do not have grounds nor procedures for the process. The general basis of such action is the minor proving to the court that they can conduct their life without adult involvement. The petitioner would have to show they could earn enough income to pay for food, clothing, shelter, medical care, education if applicable, and other such issues. The situation cited would not be a consideration for emancipation but would likely be grounds for the termination of parental rights by the court. As for the possibility of the parents being "in trouble" it is highly likely they would face various charges including but not limited to, possession and use of a controlled or illegal substance, child endangerment, neglect, abuse, and so forth.

i think children should be able to do whatever they want and if there parents do not have a relationship with them and the child has tried reaching out but nothing i believe that children can get emancipated if they have a place to live besides the streets and have a way of getting schooling and shelter and clothing, and food. No matter what age they are children should be able to get emancipated.

Some people get emancipated to become their own legal guardian. A teenager could become emancipated from their parents or guardians if proper care was not being given.

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.

You have to be emancipated or be an adult. Until you turn 18, your parents make the decisions. Only then can you move out.

There is no requirement that they be emancipated. Until they are 18 they remain the responsibility of the parents.
