    In Florida, the ONLY way to be emancipated is if your mom will file the petition.

    If she will not, and if she will not agree to let you stay with your friends, then the simple answer is, you live with your mom until you are 18.

    hello tracker, i myself am 16 and i just moved to florida a few months ago with my boyfriend who is 24, i am not emancipated, but my mother and i dont get along so i moved out, she payed for my bud ticket down to florida, but all i can tell you is that in order to get emancipated you must prove to the judge that you have a steady well paying job, and that you can financially support yourself. hope things work out.

    Ummm, do you realize that the age of consent in FL is 18 unless the child is at least 16 and the adult is UNDER the age of 24? Do you, your boyfriend, or your mother realize it is illegal to take a minor across state lines for purposes of a sexual or immoral nature?

    FL is very tough on this crime.

    As stated before, the ONLY way to be able to even file for legal emancipation in FL is for the minor's parents to file the petition for them. Just moving out does not make a minor emancipated.
