What Is the Age of Emancipation of a Minor in Indiana?

A minor can be emancipated in Indiana at age 19. The child can also be emancipated if he joins the military or gets married. If the minor is no longer under the control of the parent or other court-approved guardian, then he can also be emancipated.

The child can also become emancipated if he is at least 18, has not gone to school for at least four months, is not currently enrolled in school and is capable of supporting himself through gainful employment. The age of majority in Indiana is 18. The emancipation age affects when child support stops for that child.
