    Default Emancipation Options in South Carolina

    Ok i am currently living in South Carolina. I just moved here from Virgnia. I did not want to come here at all. I had a job and everything, but I did not have a chance to emancipate myself in time before leaving Virginia. My parents told me once i moved to South Carolina and got a job they would help me to get emancipated, but to my knowledge, you cannot become emancipated in South Carolina. I have a GED and I read somewhere that once you have a high school diploma in South Carolina you are at the age of legal consent. I was wondering if you have a GED in South Carolina, does that mean that Im of age of legal consent, because once you have a high school diploma you are. If anyone knows of any laws about emancipation in South Carolina, please help me out. Is there any other way i can leave without becoming emancipated? Im 16, and my boss in Virginia says i can still have my job when i get back, and I already have somone that will let me stay with them.

    The age of majority in SC is 18. Obtaining a GED is not an emancipating event, nor is graduating from high school. As far as I am aware, SC does not have an emancipation statute.
