  • Do I stand a chance at emancipation in Montana?

    I am 16 years old. I have been working part time for over 1 year now I have 2,800 saved up so far.I am taking classes for my G.E.D. I have taken 2 out of the 5 tests for the G.E.D. I should have all of the testing done within 2 months at the most.

    Reason for wanting emancipation:
    1. My parents are moving out of the country (Costa Rica) on Jan 1
    I would like to stay behind and finish up my G.E.D and possible consider attending college at 16.
    2.My parents really don't care about my education I have been taken in and out of school since I was in 4th grade they forced me to quit school completely in 8th grade.(without homeschooling).There reasons for taking me out of school consist of them saying we travel to much.And since most schools only allow you to miss a couple of weeks of school, they decided to take me out all together.
    3.I honestly think moving to Costa Rica would NOT be in my best interest.There is no future for me there. no chance for me to continue my education. I would have to wait 2 years just to be able to finish my G.E.D.There are no English speaking schools in our area.I feel as if moving there is a waste of my time that could be better spent finishing my G.E.D and getting my drivers licenses.
    4. I feel that I am ready to live on my own and that I am mature enough to take on the responsibilities required.

    My parents will not give consent and I haven't been able to live outside of my parents house at all.As of now they have no idea I am pursuing this.
    I was wondering if you guys could post your opinions on my on the chances I have of getting emancipated.I live in the state of Montana if that helps any.If you have any futher question that would better help you understand my situation please ask.

    It might be of help for you to go to MontanaLawHelp.org to get information...you probably need to talk to an attorney...my understanding of emancipation in Montana is that you have to have a way to support yourself and finish school....it sounds like you have thought it out and have good reason for wanting to be emancipated....do you have any extended family members who would help you or support you???
