I went to a class about being emmancipated. I think you probably can be emmancipated in Georgia, just look it up. But being emmancipated isn't easy. It has to be in your best interest, a judge has to approve it/parents sign that paperwork if I'm not wrong, and you have to basically make it on your own with a little help.

Why do you want to get emmancipated?

It it highly unlikely he would be granted emancipation unless he has a job/strong means to provide for himself.

If he's having problems at home, he should consider attending a support group/seeing a youth counselor to discuss other possible options.

In Georgia you can leave home at 17 on your own free will, the police can't do anything about it. However, your parents still have legal control over you because you're still a minor. Actual Emancipation is very difficult to achieve, you have to have a steady job, a place to live, and prove the ability to provide for yourself, and even then the judge has to approve it.

At seventeen, he is about as emasipated as its going to get... By the time it pulls through, he will probably be an adult already.

This link is the legal qualifications and reasoning for Georgia. Take a look.

http://lawdigest.uslegal.com/minors/...of-minor/6472/

Here is the part I think you are looking for, but there is a lot more on the site for further details and processes.

Quote:
15-11-202.
A minor seeking emancipation shall file a petition for emancipation in the juvenile court in the county where the minor resides. The petition shall be signed and verified by the minor, and shall include:
(1) The minor's full name and birth date, and the county and state where the minor was born;
(2) A certified copy of the minor's birth certificate;
(3) The name and last known address of the minor's parents or guardian, and if no parent or guardian can be found, the name and address of the minor's nearest living relative residing within this state;
(4) The minor's present address and length of residency at that address;
(5) A declaration by the minor indicating that he or she has demonstrated the ability to manage his or her financial affairs; the minor may include any information he or she considers necessary to support the declaration;
(6) A declaration by the minor indicating that he or she has the ability to manage his or her personal and social affairs; the minor may include any information he or she considers necessary to support the declaration; and
(7) The names of adults who have personal knowledge of the minor's circumstances and believe that under those circumstances emancipation is in the best interest of the minor. Such individuals may include any of the following:
(A) Physician or osteopath licensed pursuant to Chapter 34 of Title 43;
(B) Registered professional nurse or licensed practical nurse licensed pursuant to Chapter 26 of Title 43;
(C) Psychologist licensed pursuant to Chapter 39 of Title 43;
(D) Professional counselor, social worker, or marriage and family therapist licensed pursuant to Chapter 10A of Title 43;
(E) School guidance counselor, school social worker, or school psychologist;
(F) School administrator, school principal, or school teacher;
(G) Member of the clergy;
(H) Law enforcement officer; or
(I) Attorney.
So, yes, he can be emancipated.
