Thank you for your question.


A child is considered an adult in Michigan at the age of 18, and is under the parent's control until that age. A child is also emancipated by operation of the law when the child marries or is enrolled in the military. Beyond that, there is a process by which the courts can emancipate a minor child if the child can demonstrate to the court that he/she can manage his/her own personal, financial and social affairs.
