I am currently 19 years old, however, as I am attending college, I am still a dependent of my mother. It's just that my mom can't afford my schooling and I am taking out student loans. Someone told us I might have less trouble with taking out loans and such for my school if I get emancipated. Is it true, and if it is, how can I go about doing it? Is there a way to not have to spend too much of my mother's money? I go to school in Illinois, but I live in Indiana.
