    Question How to File for Emancipation Without a Lawyer

    My question involves juvenile law in the State of: Indiana I am a seventeen year-old male that wishes to file for emancipation my self because a lawyer is expensive. but I don't know where to start. I know i qualify for emancipation in Indiana according to IC 31-34-20-6

    IC 31-34-20-6
    Emancipation of child; findings; terms
    Sec. 6. (a) The juvenile court may emancipate a child under section 1(5) of this chapter if the court finds that the child:
    (1) wishes to be free from parental control and protection and no longer needs that control and protection;
    (2) has sufficient money for the child's own support;
    (3) understands the consequences of being free from parental control and protection; and
    (4) has an acceptable plan for independent living.
    (b) If the juvenile court partially or completely emancipates the child, the court shall specify the terms of the emancipation, which may include the following:
    (1) Suspension of the parent's or guardian's duty to support the child. In this case the judgment of emancipation supersedes the support order of a court.
    (2) Suspension of the following:
    (A) The parent's or guardian's right to the control or custody of the child.
    (B) The parent's right to the child's earnings.
    (3) Empowering the child to consent to marriage.
    (4) Empowering the child to consent to military enlistment.
    (5) Empowering the child to consent to:
    (A) medical;
    (B) psychological;
    (C) psychiatric;
    (D) educational; or
    (E) social;
    services.
    (6) Empowering the child to contract.
    (7) Empowering the child to own property.
    (c) An emancipated child remains subject to the following:
    (1) IC 20-33-2 concerning compulsory school attendance.
    (2) The continuing jurisdiction of the court.
    I make 1200 a month and have the pay stubs to prove it. I also have an acceptable plan for living for living. many of my friends are looking for a room mate and have a place of their own. Please don't preach i just want to know the exact steps to file for emancipation.
    Thank you for all your help

    If you can't find the steps to file for emancipation on your own, that says a great deal about whether you are *really* ready to be an adult.

    You want to be independent and self-sufficient? Okay, kid. Now's the time to start.

    Have at it.

    I can but I release how slim my chances of winning this case are so I don't want to just throw away my money. Also that was a typo I meant a month sorry about that.

    You appear to be a liar. The thing about forums is you take the users as you find them.
