We recently talked about the process for the emancipation of a minor in Arizona, but it's important to understand what this means as far as your legal rights. After emancipation, you will be considered an adult legally. Thus, you will be able to do certain things that other people your age are not legally able to do. For example, once you have been legally emancipated from your parents, you will have the right to:
  • Enter into binding contracts;
  • Sue and be sued;
  • Buy and sell real estate;
  • Live independently;
  • Apply for loans and go into debt;
  • Consent to medical care for your children and yourself;
  • Obtain your medical records;
  • Apply for school;
  • Obtain social services;
  • Operate some equipment and perform certain services.
