Emancipation doesn't really work that way right now. In most states, you're required to demonstrate that you're both self-sufficient, and that your parents are unfit.
Unless your state allows you to quit school without parental consent, emancipation may not change that. Any law that specifies an age generally continues to hold. That means, in NJ at least, you cannot vote, you cannot work more than 40 hours a week, cannot work before 7 am or after 7 pm, cannot drive, etc.
Basically, all that sh*t you'd really need access to in order to be self sufficient in the first place.
Emancipation is an alternative to foster care, more than anything else. If you can offer sufficient evidence that your parents are unfit to qualify for emancipation, it's going to be that or foster care. And it's probably going to be foster care.
Maybe it's just an incredibly sh*tty deal in NJ, compared to other states?
Anyways, you all are horrible, @#%^ed up people
Never underestimate the healing power of a massive dong.
