* A VictimOfTheWeek in ''Series/LawAndOrder'' is a pop star, who turns out to be an emancipated minor now married to her manager. The dialogue implies that she bribed her parents to keep them from contesting the emancipation.

This is technically allowed under most legal systems, but it's a lot harder than TV will imply. Most courts will only allow it under two circumstances: one, for married minors (but [[MortonsFork minors who want to marry in the US normally need parental consent anyway nowadays]]), and two, for adolescents where there are truly no other good options and who have attained self-sufficiency (meaning that they are capable of supporting themselves for the foreseeable future and are not likely to go on welfare).

* In ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'', 17 year old Helen from ''Webcomic/PennyAndAggie'' used her dad's money to hire a lawyer to serve him emancipation papers, resulting in her being emancipated within the week. Nancy, [[http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp08092010.shtml telling this story to Davan]], doesn't understand how that could possibly have worked.

* Naturally, ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' has used this as a plot. Bart, finally tired of Homers crappy parenting and neglect, gets himself emancipated, with his income coming from Homers garnished wages intended to pay back money he stole from Barts brief career acting in commercials as a baby. The judge even says she would never emancipate a ten year old, except in this case of blatant abuse and neglect she'll allow it.
