Well it means to "free from restraint, control, or the power of another".
Hence the Emancipation Proclamation.
But it usually used to refer to a child being legal declared an adult and no longer the parents/guardians restorability before they would normally be an adult.
Well, if you look up the definition of divorce...it's between two married people....not a parent and a child. They were probably just trying to explain it in a way that a child, or teenager would understand it...or, they are just ignorant.
well technically you do
iva had social workers and lawers talk to me about getting emancipated since i have a baby and dont live with my parents
and they always say that its basically divorcing them
Well I guess some parents are not fit to be parents, but you would still always be their child. I have never heard of kids divorcing their parents.
A divorce is between two married people...not between a parent and child. You can't 'divorce' your parents.
well there you
go am jus simplifying it
because basically thats wat it is....
when you legally divorce your parents
your very cool
Thank you (:
