The minor applying for early emancipation rights is responsible for proving to the court that he/she is capable of conducting their life without adult involvement. There must be valid court accepted documentation of the minor's employment history, the place of residence, amount of income available to pay for shelter, food, medical care, transportation, educational costs (if applicable), and so forth. Income does not mean money given the minor by parents, grandparents, friends, etc. it indicates monies earned from honest employment. The person filing the petition is responsible for all filing fees and accompanying court costs and perhaps added legal fees depending upon the individual's circumstances.

Missouri has no emancipation status other than that which pertains to child support orders. Missouri Revised Statute Chapter 210 (Section 210.110) (3) '"Child" any person regardless of physical or mental condition under the age of eighteen.' MoRS Chapter 660 (Sect. 660.400) (1) '"Adult" any individual over the age of eighteen."' A minor seeking emancipation must petition the court in the appropriate venue. An individual who is at least seventeen and married or serving in the military is considered emancipated under MO. law.

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.

{| |- | No they cannot. Pregnancy does not confir emancipation. Until they are adults they remain the responsibility of their parents. Being a parent under the age of majority does not change that. One must be at least 16 to be considered for emancipation. |}
