My question involves emancipation laws for the State of: Florida
I have been seriously considering Emancipation. I am 16 years old, and currently looking for a job, I have a vehicle from my uncle that is fully paid off, I only need money to buy insurance. In order to be emancipated, you need a petition from a guardian. Could my father do it? He has only limited custody of me, but I know that my mother woudn't do it. Would it cost him money? He can't afford to do much in the way of legal services now. Also, he pays about 800 dollars a month for my child support. If I am emancipated, he wouldn't have to pay it anymore, but, if he was willing, and paid me the money each month directly, could I use that as part of my financial support? I would also get a job, but I was just wondering. Thank you for your help.
