Best Answer

Emancipation takes a court order from a judge who thinks you are the best one to make decisions about your life and in fact, capable of taking care of yourself. The fact that you are 17 and pregnant is evidence that you are not yet capable of making good choices in life or caring for yourself. Therefore, I find it very unlikely you will become emancipated.
