Best Answer

Emancipation generally relates to a minor being declared of legal age. A female minor who is a pregnant or has a child can ask the court to emancipate her for her to be eligible to receive public assistance. Being pregnant or having a child does not automatically make the minor female emancipated. On the other side, a parent can file a voluntary termination of parental rights petition to be relieved of their parental obligations to a minor child or children. The granting of such a request is based upon what is in the best interest of the child or children rather than the circumstances of the parent.
