I would like help in filling out my papers for emancipation.

Customer Question
I would like help...

I would like help in filling out my papers for emancipation

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

I live in American American Fork Utah

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

I have reached out to lawyers today but I have not heard back. I had been going to my aunt with my questions (she works in the law) but she has said she doesnt want to aid me so it doesnt look like she is choosing sides

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I think that is all. My parents have said a legal gaurdian isnt allowed so my options are to live at home, go into states custody, or be emancipated. They will sign for the emancipation to go through and my mother has said she will explain to the courts why I can not live at home

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
