  1. How long until you turn 18? Will your parents agree to the emancipation? Do you and your boyfriend want to get married?

    Many questions to be thought of and discussed before an answer can be made. Furthermore, we are unable to give legal advice to a minor, so you will likely only receive general information.

    You should consult an attorney for advice regarding your individual situation since every case is different and not all information is relayed in an online question. The Law Office of Ophelia Bernal-Mora, P.A. is a family law firm located in Orlando, Florida, we invite you to contact us and welcome your calls at 407-354-5223. Contacting us does not create an attorney-client relationship. Please do not send any confidential information to us until such time as an attorney-client relationship has been established.


  2. Ms. Mora is correct that we are limited in what we can recommend because you are a minor. Is there a trusted adult with whom you can discuss this matter? Also, at this point, how many months are left until you turn 18?
