Entering the court while seeking emancipation is a serious situation. It's a process by which the court grants you the right to live as an adult despite the fact that you're a minor. There are cases in which an emancipation is necessary or appropriate. To receive an emancipation, you'll have to prove that your case is one of those situations.
There are requirements to meet before you can be emancipated. For example, you'll need to show that it's in your best interests not to be legally bound to your parents or guardians. Additionally, you need to be old enough to file the claim. In California, it's 14 years old, while in Alabama, you have to wait until you're 18. Every state is different. Louisiana's rules state that you must be 16 to be emancipated by judicial consent or 15 by parental consent.
