* 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 years old except in this of blatant abuse and neglect she'll allow it.

* The 1984 film ''{{Irreconcilable Differences}}'' is all about this. Drew Barrymore plays a child who actually says, "I want to divorce my parents."

* A VictimOfTheWeek in ''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.

* One girl in ''{{Accelerando}}'' does this. Though technically, she doesn't emancipate herself as much as ''sell herself into slavery'' to a corporation which is ultimately owned by a trust fund of which she is the sole beneficiary. The net effect is to give her control over her own life at the age of ten.

* In ''LittleElvisJonesAndTheTruckstoppers'' there is an episode where all the children in the town take their parents to court. Interestingly, its played slightly (emphasis on slightly) more realistic in that the big bad of the series encourages them and supports their case in order to get custody of Lil Elvis.
