1 Emancipation of Minor on Tue Apr 24, 2012 5:19 pm


Arresto Menor
I am 16 years old and I'm considering emancipation from my parents. This is not for reasons such as abuse or an immature need for independence. I need advice on a possible technicality.
I am an incoming college sophomore. My parents want me to pursue a medical career (as they both have). I wish to study law.
I am intellectually capable of acquiring scholarships. (I enjoyed free high school education and am currently a merit scholar.) However, financially speaking, my applications are usually denied.
I want to know if, through emancipation, my parents income will no longer be a factor and I could search for scholarships to enroll in a law program which they are unwilling to support.
I understand that my problem isn't as pressing as that of others but nevertheless, I'd appreciate advice. Thank you!

after legal age was reduced to 18 from 21, there is no longer any emancipation.

enrolling in law studies is possible only after finishing a 4 year course.and it is possible to do so even with any course. stick it out because it doesn't make much difference.

kudos to you for being so passionate to be a lawyer, but i don't see any reason why you should burn the bridges yet.
