- Q. On what grounds can a minor be emancipated under Minnesota law?
- A: Minnesota law does not define emancipation or give a procedure to follow to be emancipated. So, the process and grounds for emancipation are not all that clear, and may be different from county to county. Much of it depends on child's parents. Thus, if your parents allow you to live on your own, you might be considered emancipated. Therefore, permission from your parents could be grounds. Their permission would be based whether they actually say you can or should live by yourself. Consent from parents may be proven if they don’t try to get you to come home after running away, etc. Each case is very fact-specific.
