How Old Can a Minor be to Become an Emancipation?

How old can a minor be to become an Emancipation? I have a friend who doesn’t want to live her parents anymore.

Arkansas law allows a minor to be emancipated if they are at least 17 years old and can show that they are self supporting. If your friend is 17 you can encourage her to see an experienced family law attorney who can explain the process to become emancipated. Most attorneys will offer a free consultation for the first visit.
