    Ohio has no emancipation law. Neither a minor (< 18) nor the minor's parent is able to file a petition for emancipation.

    A minor can achieve independence from a parent in two ways:

    1. Lawful marriage; or

    2. Successful enlistment in any branch of the Armed Forces.

    However, in the event of divorce or annulment, or discharge from the Armed Forces before the age of 18, custody of the minor will automatically revert to the parent who previously had custody over the minor.

    I don't know about emancipation, but just try to make someone a slave or sell or buy a slave.
