I went to class for that. It's going to be very hard for you to get emmancipated if you can't support yourself, If It's not in your best interest. If you want to do it for freedom, It probably will not happen. I think It's 16. But just check.

Basically to be emancipated you need to go to court, and prove that
1: You're parents or whoever aren't raising you right
2: You can live on your own (you'll need a job now preferably. You're plan sounds fine, but they're not going to take plans... you'll probably need a job now, even if it's fast food)
3: You are a responsible adult. (you do this by maintaining good grades and not getting into trouble)

So basically, get a job now, get good grades, and don't get in trouble, and above all else have a good reason and proof you're parents or whoever are doing shit. (I doubt this is your situation, but I have met girls here that want to run away simply because their parents won't get them the cell phone they want. That's what I call a bad reason to try and get emancipated...)

I do believe you have to be 16 in Louisiana to be emancipated. Since you're 15, I'd strive for a job, grades, and being a good responsible adult until then.

Also, these arn't requirements as far as I know, but they're things that will definatly help you get emancipated. Every state differs... I'd look it up on google.


As far as the mental health thing goes... I think it depends on the problem and the judge. If they deem you unstable to live on your own, I think it'd get in the way. However, if perhaps you're parents have brought this on, then it might help. It really depends on how you're dealing with it, and what the problem is it. I think the court will view Depression and Schizophrenia different for instance.



Take me seriously.
I dare you.
