    And a simple and correct answer to your personal question of 'what do I do' is that you tell her you were wrong to speak of something you know nothing about. You have since found out that your information was incorrect and that she should talk to her family, therapist, school counselor, priest/pastor/rabbi/whatever.... to try to improve her relationship with her parents.

    That's not what emancipation is for. Emancipation is not and never was designed to allow a teenager to leave home, no matter how badly her family treats her. If she is being abused the recourse is to call CPS, not to emancipate.

    Emancipation was and is designed to provide legal protections to those teenagers who, through circumstances they had no control over, found themselves on their own.

    Tell me, does Cassie have a job? Can she pay for rent, food, clothes, utilities, medical care, transportation, insurance, school supplies and fees, all on her own without any help? Does she have a place to live? Can she show a judge a plan for independent living that includes showing him a budget of how much she earns, how much she pays in expenses, and how she will continue to earn her living while going to school?

    Why did you tell her that in the first place? How old is she?
