I'm 17, I now live in Fl with my older siser. I have agood job and am able to take care of myself. I'm finished with school now. My parents don't have a problem with me not living with them. The only reason I think I shuld get emancipated is because if anything ever happened to me, a doctor couldn't do anything to help me without my parents being there. With them living almost a thousand miles away, that's not very comforting. Anyone know what I would need to do? Would I need to go back to Virginia to get emancipated? If I go back would I just go to the court house to talk to someone there?
They have told you the basics, but it's much more complicated. I live in VA and have read the emancipation laws. Basically, you would have to be allowed by your parents to leave the home and set up your own living arrangements. If you initially leave without this permission than you are a runaway. If you get into trouble during this time, your parents are responsible, and the cops can and will bring you home. Living on your own does not mean just crashing somewhere. You must be paying rent and totally supporting yourself. The judge will want to see a rental agreement in addition to pay stubs showing you are capable of supporting yourself. I didn't follow the last post, but getting pregnant in VA or giving birth does NOT automatically emancipate you, so it's not worth your while, you would then have to show you are supporting two. I do believe that marriage to a legal adult does emancipate you in VA, but your parents will have to give permission if you are under 18. It's much easier to work things out with you parents in the long run. Good luck!
Virginia law requires that a minor must be at least 16-years of age before he or she can file a petition of emancipation. VA. Title 16.1-331.
Basically, no. There is only one state that I
A 15-year-old cannot be emancipated in Virginia. You must be at least 16.
If she has parental permission, she can move out.
You have to get emancipated, but you might want to think hard before doing so. In order to get emancipated your parents have to sign off giving you permission.

Not,the age of majority in most states is 18, in Alabama and Nebraska it is 19, in Mississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21. Parent(s) or a guardian is legally and financially responsible for minors in their care until said minor reaches legal age or a the court rules otherwise. Therefore the parents or guardian can file a requisition in the proper court for a minor be returned to their custody or for them to be relieved of their obligations concerning the underaged person.
A minor can get emancipated at the age of 16 in the state of Maine. The minor will have to get an attorney to represent them in court and to file paperwork for the judge to hear the case.
At 16 with parental permission.
can a minor in the state of Missouri be emancipated with parental permission at the age of 15
Once you are married you are emancipated not when you get the permission.
Emancipation is done by petitioning a court. Parental permission is not necessary.
At 16, you need parental permission anyways just to be emancipated. But with parental permission, I think she can live with her boyfriend. The only problem would be that she's a minor and he's not, but I think she is much less a minor when emancipated.
Not legally. They have to have parental permission or be emancipated.
Not if they have parental permission.
No, you do not have to have parental permission. They do have to be informed and the courts consider the parent's wishes when making their determination.
It will depend on the laws in your state or location. You do not need parental permission to get emancipated, but you must meet the other requirements.
You have to be 18 unless you have parental permission or get emancipated by the court.
One way is to get married, which requires parental permission. The other is to join the military, which also requires parental permission.
Only with parental permission.
You can if you have parental permission or if you've been emancipated.
