I need to get some plain facts straight about getting emancipated in arkansas. I have read the legal statement but i don't really understand it so maybe someone could explain it to me in layman's terms. I am 17, i will be 18 in dec., and i would like to be emancipated, but i don't have a sob story. I simply want to move in with my boyfriend, and i need to know how i can go about doing that legally. My parents say they won't even let me move out when i turn 18. I plan to still finish my last year of high school, i have a steady good paying job, and i can support myself on my own if need be. Anyways can someone tell me what age i can just go get emancipated, or do i have to take my parents to court and fight them? Marriage maybe or do you have to have your parents consent to do that? If worse comes to worse i can stick it out until i turn 18 in a couple months. Any advice and explation would be a great help. Thanks!
