Question: how do i go about getting emancipated?

Answer: Emancipation of a minor is provided for by A.R.S 12-2451.  Under that provision, a minor who wishes to be emancipated must meet ALL of the following requirements: the minor is at least sixteen years of age, the minor is a resident of this state, the minor is financially self-sufficient, the minor acknowledges in writing that the minor has read and understands information that is provided by the court and that explains the rights and obligations of an emancipated minor and the potential risks and consequences of emancipation, and the minor is not a ward of the court and is not in the care, custody and control of a state agency.  A minor who meets these requirements, and who wishes to become emanicipated, may file a petition for an emancipation order with the clerk of the court in the county in which the minor resides.  The petition must include supporting documentation that the minor meets the above stated requirements. After the filing of the petition, the court will hold a hearing to determine if emancipation is appropriate.
