Customer: ***** *****. Our 17-1/2 year old granddaughter has been living with us for 7 months. She turns 18 in February. She has a 15 month old baby. Her mother
kicked her out, we took her in. She is wanting to apply for college but the college either requires she have parental signature on the application or she have legal papers stating she is emancipated. How can we get her emancipated in Colorado?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I am not sure what details you need. She is a single teen parent, living with us, but she has a job, we just provide a home for her and her baby. She basically has no contact with her parents any longer. It is my understanding there is a way to petition the court for "legal autonomy" but I have not found how to do this. Is there a form we can file, or how do we go about this?
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Family Law
Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
