English term or phrase: sign
Does anyone know what the sign in parenthesis means?

{§455.O1O) Any adult, defined as a person 18 years of age or older or otherwise emancipated. This person is called the petitioner.

I don't know if this is a stupid question but I really don't know what it means and I would appreciate it any help you can provide me.
Thanks!
Molly
