When a person has not reached the age of majority in the state in which they live, emancipation is needed to relieve the parent(s) or legal guardian of their legal responsibilities. Until a minor reaches the state age of legal majority the parent(s) or legal guardian are financially and legally responsible for their underaged children or wards.
