My question involves emancipation laws for the State of: Virginia and Arkansas. I am 17 years old. I will be 18 in 11 months.... My parent's were very controling. I was making my own decisions and they didn't like it, so they told me to move out. I moved out and now live in Virginia. I know some of the rules for emancipation, like I have my own job. I take care of all my own money, I buy all my own neccessities. I pay for the gas it takes to get me to work. My age is above the requirement. And it would be a good thing for me to be emancipated. I believe I have everything that I need? I have a few questions like, do my parent's have to know, and if so do they have to sign something? They couldn't because they are in a different state.... Umm, how much does it cost, like for the court dates and things like that.... Where do I fill out the paper work? Thanks for your time and help.... It is much appreciated.... Do you have any advice for me, concerning what i could do to make my case better?.... Thanks again!
