Okay thank you for that.
Ohio is like some other states, including NY, where the is no specific way to become emancipated. There is no petition to file and your parents are still responsible for you if you move out. The only way I've seen that you can become emancipated, and I checked several sources, is to get married or be in the military.
Unfortunately, that's the only way.
The law is as follows:
To be emancipated before reaching age 18, a minor must either join a branch of the armed services or become married. Ohio state law does not allow a minor or the minor's parents to petition the court for emancipation.
Even if a court relieves parents of financial responsibility for a minor child, the child is not emancipated and the parents still may be held responsible for the child's actions.
I am just the messenger but I know you would rather have the truth than not have it, so I have to be honest with you. And if you bring a case in family court to have your parents stop supporting you, as indicated above, it does not emancipate you. Please understand I don't like giving bad news but you are entitled to the truth.
Emancipation occurs automatically when a person reaches age 18, the age of majority for most purposes, or upon graduation from high school if a child turns 18 during his or her last year of high school.
Does this answer your question? I wish I had better news for you but unless you're planning on getting married or joining the military, you would have to wait till you're 18.
