    Answered . In Indiana, a child is emancipated when they reach the age of 19. However, you still need to file a Petition for Emancipation with the Court. At the age of 18, there are certain factors set out in the Indiana Code which need to be considered in order to determine if emancipation or modification of support is proper. You should contact an attorney to discuss your particular situation to determine your best course of action.
