I Have A Job And I Am Currently Attending Community College But Never Graduated Hs. I Have Some Money Saved Up Outside Of My Bank Account. I Live In Philadelphia Pa. I Also Live With My Legal Gaurdian , My Home Enviorment Is Stressful And Takes Me Off Focus Of My Goals And Accomplishments. (but They Have Agreed To Sign Emancipation Papers As Long As I Can Meet The Requirements Of Getting An Emancipation) How Do I Go About Doing So??

    The process take a great deal of time and its possible you could turn 18 before its over. Along with most petitions are denied

    PA has different statutes for each county and yes the process is easier if parents agree but there is still a process to go through. However you may liv eoutside yourparental home now with parents consent. If you are already living independently and paying your own bills you increase your chances of a successful emancipation

    You can find information about your county's emancipation policies here.

    Note that just because you are emancipated, it does not necessarily follow that a landlord will rent to you with no rental history and no cosigner.
