How long does it take to get emancipated? Can my dad get custody of me?
The length of your emancipation petition will depend on several factors. For instance, if your parents protest the emancipation, a certain amount of hearings will be held before a final decision is made. There may also be state law that sets certain time restrictions on the process as well. Contact a local family law attorney for legal advice and guidance. In regard to custody, if there is no current court order restricting custody, then yes, your father has custody of you. Once your emancipation is final, he will no longer have custody.
