Legal Emancipation for Minor | Karnataka Courts

Aniketh Chavare (10 Points)

27 February 2023  


I am a minor (17 years old). I live with my parents.

I have a company with me and I also want to start a proprietorship with my own name, being the sole owner and signatory. The only problem is that I'm not yet 18, hence I can't get into contracts, agreements, etc. I don't want my parents to do everything on my behalf.

I was reading a few articles and I heard that this might be possible. Is it possible for me to gain legal status as an "adult" to get into contracts and do most of the stuff by myself? If so, how can I do it?

Thanks a lot.
