Emancipation in Indiana is governed by statute. Check Ind. Code § 31-37-19-27, available at http://www.in.gov/legislative/ic/code/title31/ar37/ch19.html. The problem with this statute is that it only applies to a delinquent child, which is defined at Ind. Code 31-37-2, available at http://www.in.gov/legislative/ic/code/title31/ar37/ch2.html. To see how to take advantage of the statute in a careful way that will help show the court you are responsible enough to be emancipated, you should consult with an experienced family law attorney.
Please consider the option to mark this answer as helpful or best answer. I have taken no action on your problem other than to review your question. I want to confirm that no attorney-client relationship has been created between our firm and you in connection with this matter, and that nothing in this response is legal advice to you. My intention was to provide a small bit of help in a short amount of time. As you may know, the legislature and the courts can change the law in ways that may affect the strength of your case. In addition, the circumstances of your case may change. Because I do not represent you, I cannot keep track of, and inform you about, any change in the law. There are time limits for raising certain claims and defenses. Without taking more time to review your case, this firm cannot properly advise about those deadlines. You may lose your claims and defenses if they are not filed in court within the time allowed. I advise you to retain the services of an attorney as soon as possible.
My colleague is definitely accurate. I would advise you that most judges are not inclined to grant emancipation unless you get Child Protective Services involved and find that you are the victim of child abuse or neglect.
The information provided in this answer does not create an attorney-client relationship and is not considered to be legal advice.
