    Hi, thank you for contacting the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you’re wondering whether it could be possible for a 12 year old to be emancipated. We at the NRS are not legal experts. From what we can tell, emancipation of a youth is a process that varies from state to state, and most states require a youth to be at least 14 years old, or at least 16 years old when they start the emancipation process.

    Youth can seek emancipation for many reasons. If you’d like to discuss what’s been going on at home with us, we are available 24/7 and are a confidential, anonymous hotline you can contact any time, via 1-800-RUNAWAY or https://www.1800runaway.org. You don’t have to go through this alone, there is always someone available to talk, and we can discuss any concerns you’re having, help you explore your options, and provide referrals to legal resources.

    Good luck!
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
