Parents don't emancipate their children. A court can emancipate them. Parents just kick them out when they turn 18. There isn't a process or form that has to be signed. So, what is the process to have the courts emancipate the eighteen year old, assuming the parents will (a) allow the eighteen year old to live at home, under rules of the home (b) the needs for the eighteen year old will be met and (c) the parents are seeking some legal protection from any acts of the eighteen year old.
