What is the law in Indiana, in regards to two 17 year olds who marry with parental consent? Does this make them automatic emancipated minors - with the legal right to sign contracts and leases?

Essentially, an emancipated minor functions as an adult in society. Although specific rights vary somewhat from state to state, usually an emancipated minor may enter into legally binding contracts, including real estate purchases or apartment rentals. For further clarification on your specific state laws, you may want to consult with a local Indiana Lawyer. Many lawyers do offer a free consultation. I also suggest you visit the Family Law Center and read Emancipation of Minors as a good resource to learn more about this subject matter.
