Who can be considered an Emancipated Minor? A. Although there is no court proceeding in New York to have a young person declared an Emancipated Minor, New York Law recognizes the status of emancipation and the rights of emancipated minors.
To determine whether a young person is emancipated, the following factors are critical:
The youth must be living apart from his/her parents; The youth must be self supporting (may be receiving public benefits or child support if required by court order); The youth is not in need/receipt of foster care; The youth is living beyond the custody and control of the parent; The youth is over the age of 16.
A. If a young person can establish his/her emancipation through the test above, then the young person would have the following rights:
The right to retain one's own wages; The right to sue for parental support if the parent forced the youth to leave home; The right to establish his/her own legal residence and attend school where he/she resides; If needy, eligibility for certain public benefits (depending on the circumstances of the young person's emancipation);
