  • What does it take to get emancipated?

    I'm 15 years old and neither of my parents are fit. I was wondering what are the steps to get emancipated/how long does it take? Would I even be able to?

    Thomas’s Answer

    I suggest that you contact an adult relative you trust, who can get you to meet with a lawyer. You are not old enough to hire and have a contract with a lawyer alone. You also will have to prove that neither of your parents is providing support, and that you somehow can support yourself. Good luck.
