    Default 17 Years Old, In College, with Two Jobs

    I am living in the state of FLorida.
    I got my GED as soon as I was 16,
    and started college immediately.
    I am now 17 years old, and I am working two full-time jobs and continuing college online.

    I am planning on becoming emancipated, so i can move out of my house with my boyfriend.

    My mother has no problem with me becoming emancipated.

    I have two questions:
    1. Do you think the request will be granted?
    2. Can I get a piercing once I'm emancipated?

    Is your father in the picture? If so, what's his position on emancipation?

    1.) What we think is immaterial. It's what the judge thinks that matters. The Expertlaw crystal ball is out being recalibrated.

    2.) That depends on what is holding up the piercing (I'm not familiar with the laws on the subject in your state). If you have not been able to get a piercing because your parents will not permit it, then, yes, IF you are emancipated you can then get one. But if you have not been able to get one because your state has a law requiring that you be 18 (or 21) then you will still have to wait until you attain legal age. You won't be able to smoke, drink, or vote until you reach the legal age for those actions, either.
