My question involves juvenile law in the State of: New Mexico.
I am 16 years of age, and currently live with a cousin who is now my legal guardian by will of my parents who are now deceased. I have graduated high school early, and I have a secure job by which I pay for my expenses with. Though, I'm seeking emancipation so that I can further my education and so that upon leaving, I will be able to enter into contracts, open my own bank account, and consent to any medical procedures that may be necessary. I intend to move out of state to Arizona after I receive emancipation status because I had lived there for a year prior, and therefore have many emergency contacts near by. I have already found a place that I could rent, and my guardian gives her full consent. Is this in good reason for my case to be filed? Would a judge consider my request?
