Indiana  |  Juvenile Dependency

Legal Question

Asked on: 2/27/11, 8:33 pm

I recently turned 16 and I have been looking to get emancipated since I was 15. I have done a lot of research on the subject and I meet all of the Indiana requirements. I found a way to graduate several years before I was meant to and I am already a student in college. I have saved about 10,000 dollars which will be enough for covering rent over a 12 month period as well as fully furnishing my apartment. I have a steady job working with my mother and make over enough to pay for my monthly cost of living. I save about 10% of my income and I have a very solid financial plan that would allow for unexpected expenses as well as if I was to be fired and could not find work for several months. I do not currently live separate from my mother and my family would not approve of my being emancipated. But it is something I feel like is necessary because of family issues and my need for independence from them. I am inquiring on the likely-hood of my individual case being approved. I do not want to go through all the drama from the action and not reap any reward from it.
