(The emancipation law does not require that you be in school, but compulsory education laws do. The judge wants to see that you are either in school, have already graduated, or have earned a GED).If you are emancipated, you must:Support yourself financially.Get your own medical, dental, and automobile insurance.Pay your bills.Make sure your income is from a legal source.Even after you are emancipated.You must go to school until you graduate or turn 18.You cannot work as many hours as you want. You must still obey child labor laws and follow work permit rules.You may be tried as an adult if you commit a crime.A judge will decide if you will be tried in Juvenile Court or tried as an adult.

What you have to do is have a better reason, like abuse, and then file with the court.
