    Default South Carolina Emancipation Laws South Carolina

    I have been researching emancipation laws for South Carolina, but I can't understand the stuff I find. I don't if I'm just legal-dumb or if I'm looking in the wrong places. I'm just curious as tpo what constitutes grounds for emancipation of a minor of 16 years of age in South Carolina. Thanks.

    I don't believe that SC has any emancipation statutes. Usually when a state doesn't have any statutes it means that emancipations are only granted in extremely rare cases.

    Okay, well, what about something like "Removal from and unfit home"? I mean, if the conditions were bad enough that removal was in the best interest of the child, would the state take action?

    Yes, if a report is filed with CPS and they investigate and determine the child is in an abusive and/or unfit living environment, they will remove the child from the home. However, once the child is removed, he or she is placed in the custody of the state, meaning the child will go to foster care. The child will STILL not be able to live on his or her own.

    Note: findings of abuse or negligence do not always result in removal of the child. Sometimes it is determined that a parenting plan and supervision by CPS is what is warranted.
