“Possibilities of emancipation in Illinois”, my name is Zion and I want to know the possibility of myself a sixteen year old becoming emancipated under my circumstances. So my mother was very neglectful and a result had her kids taken from her, she had to complete a class to get us back and she has done so. I do not wish to go back so I started my journey towards this process, I got a job and make enough money to support myself and I discussed my situation with my aunt and asked if I could live with her and she agreed. I told my mom about becoming emancipated and she said no and that she was gonna fight it. Can I still become emancipated when I make enough money and have a place to stay at, even tho mom will fight so I stay in her care.
