Yes, in most instances the minor will need to petition the court for emancipation rights; in some states this is referred to as "Relief of Disability of Age of a Minor." Only a few states have established grounds and procedures for the filing of an emancipation decree. The other option is for the parents to petition the proper court of venue to be voluntarily relieved of their parental obligations.

The adoption can be reverted so the child is up for adoption again if they feel they are not his parents but the biological parents can not adopt him.
