    There has not been a single minor emancipation approved in Georgia since 2005 and the laws have tightened since then, making it much more difficult to be approved. Please identify what is remarkable about your situation that you should be the first one in four years.

    How are you going to support yourself?

    Where are you going to live?

    What is your plan for independent living?

    What is your budget?

    How are you going to earn enough money to be completely self-sufficient while still going to school?

    The judge is going to ask you all of these questions, and more, and he will be LOOKING for reasons to deny your petition. If he is not 100% satisfied with your answers, he's going to deny your emancipation.

    Make no mistake; I am not trying to help you. I am trying to show you that your chances of being emancipated are not much better than, as has been said here before, that of a Kleenex in a blast furnace.

      well see the thing is is that both me and my dad want it and i live with him. i have no contact with my mother because i have no clue where she is and she's on drugs. but that's besides the point, i want to be able to take care of myself and be in control for once. and not have my parents looking over my shoulder all the time. im not trying to run away from rules i just want to be independent. i will have a job and the only reason i dont have one right now is because my dad wont allow me to get one. otherwise i would and i want one.


      but thank you for replying to me.

        That's not even remotely enough to satisfy a judge. On the extremely rare occasions when emancipations are granted, they are granted on the basis of need, not want.

            Then you and your parents will have to suck it up till you're 18 because I guarantee you that emancipation is not going to happen under the conditions you've outlined.

                no he wont let me get a job but he wants me gone. and i would go live with my boyfriend in his moms basement and then i would get a part time job. and he already has one so we would be paying rent. both of us are 15, he turns 16 on april 2nd and i turn 16 august 26.. but my dad has put up with a lot of crap from me so he has a reason to want me gone. and i read that a valid marrige would be a good reason and my dad and i will pretty much do anything to get away from eachother for now. and my boyfriend has already asked me to marry him. so i dont know but hopefully we can get it to happen..

                  Where is your mother in all this? Because unless she's dead or has had her rights lifted from her by the court, she has a say in this too.

                      Did the court take away her rights or did your dad? Because in your state, BOTH your parents have to ACCOMPANY you to get a marriage license (and don't even think about applying before your 16th birthday). So if you're not including your mom in this, you'd better have legal paperwork showing that she's had her rights lifted by the court if you want even a PRAYER of getting a marriage license under age. Which is not guaranteed in the first place.

                          Why are you under the impression that court orders, be it emancipation or stripping a parent of their rights, are somehow easy?

                          It WILL take much to lift her rights. It could take years. In fact, by the time it even gets that far, you will probably be 18 or within an arm's length of it.

                          Your FATHER needs to be a man and take care of his child. If you are causing problems, knock it off. It's really that simple. Go to school, get decent grades, plan for college or a career, and work at that.

                          No court in this country is going to emancipate a child so she can live in her boyfriend's home. NOT.GOING.TO.HAPPEN. No matter how much Dad approves.

                              Living with your grandfather is fine. Living with your boyfriend very well may get your boyfriend thrown in jail since you are under age.
