My question involves emancipation laws for the State of: Louisiana
I have a minor child that has been living in my house for the last 2 months. His dad went to North Carolina months ago and his mother and step mother are here living together in someone elses home. None have made any attempts to help or support and little communications. He turned 16 today and we were discussing emancipation and whether or not he can get SSI while he continues High School. He is a good kid, but I can't make discissions for him or am I able to fully support him as he needs. I do not believe anyone is collecting SSI for him. What steps does he take to get emancipated and draw SSI?
