I will be 18 in six months but I live on my own and pay for all my own things. I tested out of high school and have a job opportunity that requires me to be 18 or emancipated.
You really need to know what "proof" of emancipation the job would require. They may accept letters/affidavits from each of your parents that you are emancipated. However, if they require a court order, you would probably have difficulty getting much accomplished any faster than 6 months, when you will be 18 anyway. If both your parents will acknowledge emancipation, then one of them would have to file a petition with the court for emancipation, and the other would consent to emancipation. In that case, you may be able to get a judgment through court within 60 days or so.
