Question: For the purposes of emancipation, can a minor be considered "self-sufficient" if they can rely on someone other than their parent to provide housing and financial security?
To help answer your question, you may want to carefully review the following:
- ARS § 12-2451, Petition for emancipation order; requirements; notification; representation; waiver of filing fees
- Information on Emancipation of a Minor
Both sources list factors the court will consider in determining whether a minor is "self sufficient."
