The majority of US states do not allow the emancipation of minors.

Those states that have emancipation procedures rarely grant such rights. If a decree is granted it can be rescinded at any time for any reason before the minor reaches the state's age of majority.

The minimum age for filing an emancipation petition in states that have status is 16.

The issue of adoption would not be relevant if the minor meets all other requirements.
