Well, it’s not technically divorce, but rather, emancipation. And as you will see from a few of these examples, it is not always because their parents are shitty or the kids trying to protect their money. In some cases, becoming your own legal guardian loosens up the child labor laws associated with kids working, which means the actor or actress are then free to take any roles they want, regardless of how much time is expected or location. But, in some other cases, it is because these kids have shitty parents, and outside of killing them, this was their best option. Safe to say if I was my own guardian, I would already be dead, three times over. These five seemed to fare much better than that. For the most part. But not really, though.
