If you wish to change your name, we can assist you with the legal paperwork necessary to do so.
Emancipation is a legal way for children to become adults before they're 18. FACLC will consult with teens interested in emancipating, and will prepare the paperwork to assist in obtaining emancipation.
Once a child is emancipated, his or her parents don't have custody or control anymore. An emancipated child can do some things without a parent's permission, such as:
An emancipated child gives up the right to parental support, must attend school, can't get married without parental permission, and will be tried in juvenile court for breaking the law.
