A: This is mostly an immigration question. In terms of the family law aspects of same, seeking emancipation is not a given at age sixteen. There is strict criteria and it is very difficult for a court to emancipate a child under the age of eighteen. If you have an immigration attorney, please immediately reach out to him or her in regard to this issue. Best of luck to you.

A: I have never seen an USCIS policy mentioned 18 years old or emancipated 16 or younger. It is likely emancipation will not affect your immigration application. However, you should retain an immigration attorney for yourself and consult with more details.
