Which state do I need to file emancipation paperwork in: my state of legal residence, or the state where I'm currently living?

I am a Florida resident but am currently living with my family in NJ. I am going to emancipate from my parents, but I'm not sure which state I need to emancipate in. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

  1. If you are living with your parents in NJ, then you need to speak with a NJ attorney. Generally, a minor will be deemed to have their domicile, or legal address, where their parents live (except in exceptional situations).
