What does it take to get emancipated?

I'm 17 and I can't take it here due to Verbal abuse for a couple of years. I have someone willing to take me in til I can get stuff straightened out. I don't think I can take living here til next summer.

To be emancipated you should be able to support yourself and also have a place of your own. You can check out the procedure for getting emancipation by visiting http://www.nwls.org/emancipation_of_minors.htm. You also need to check with the legal age for this process according to your state.

Having someone take you in is a sure way to NOT be able to get emancipated . To get emancipated you have to prove a judge that you are PERSONALLY capable of taking care of yourself financially and emotionally.
