    Default Indiana Emancipation Questions

    I'm 17, I moved down here a few months ago from WI where I was iving independently, until I found out I could not be emancipated and had to move back with my mom. She is wiing to sign any papers so i can live on my own, and i am working on finding a job so i can support myself better. I was wondring if there was any thing I could do to make this go any quicker and if after I get emancipated wil i be able to move back to WI, since I have a job up there. Oh, and woud I be able to rent an apartment since you cant sign a contract when your under 18. I dont know who i can ask or tak to about any of these issues and haven't been able to really find anything on the matter. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you

    Indiana has no emancipation statute, but it may nonetheless be possible to convince a juvenile court to grant emancipation where the court finds:
    1. The petitioning minor wishes to be free from parental control and protection and no longer requires control and protection;

    2. The petitioning minor understands the consequences of being free from parental control and protection

    3. The petitioning minor has sufficient money for the child's own support; and

    4. The petitioning minor has an acceptable plan for independent living.
    Without a statute to reference, it is difficult to gauge what a judge might deem sufficient as a basis for emancipation. A local family lawyer may be able to help.
