This Evidence will need to be proof of the one of the following
- Teen has been living on their own for at least three months;
- Teen must demonstrate why their family home is an unsafe environment from which they need to be removed;
- Teen must have a notarized document signed by parents consenting to emancipation.
When determining whether to grant emancipation, the court will consider the teen’s criminal record, employment, and ability to provide for him or herself, the testimony or wishes of parents, family, and friends, and the maturity and perceived ability of the teen to handle the responsibilities of adulthood.
