The age of majority in ID is 18 years old. There is no formal statute to file for emancipation under. You may attempt to file an emancipation petition in a juvenile court or family court, or other court of jurisdiction, but there are no set out statutory requirements or prerequisites. The case of Embree v. Embree, 85 Idaho 443; 380 P.2d 216 (1963)is a common law source for an emancipation of minor petition. The case should be checked, however, to ensure it is still valid for citation. more
