    Default Leaving Home with Consent, Without Emancipation

    My question involves emancipation laws for the State of: Florida


    I am 17 years old, full time college student pursuing my diploma and A.A and holding down a full time job, and I would like to leave home and support myself.

    My mom consents, but doesn't want to go through court.

    Is there any way to leave home with consent at 17 years old in the state of Florida, without emancipation?

    Thank you

    All you need is her permission.

    The problem with not seeking legal emancipation, though, is that you are not legally capable of entering into contracts - signing leases, obtaining utility service, opening bank accounts - until you reach the age of majority, parental consent to leave home or not.

    It is probably worth mentioning that emancipation will generally not help you in the area of financial aid.

    Not until July, anyway.

    There are only two paths to emancipation in Florida, the first is by going to court, and the second is by getting married.
