New York does not have grounds nor procedures for emancipation of minors. It is however the legal right of every individual to petition the court for a decree of emancipation. The basic requirement is that the minor be able to present substantiated evidence they can conduct their personal affairs without adult involvement. This means being gainfully employed, paying for their own food, shelter, clothing, medical care, continuing education (if applicable) and so forth.

Yes, you are still a runaway, because to be emancipated, a judge must rule that you are emancipated. Otherwise you are not. Your parents must usually be part of the procedure.

17 is the age of consent so yes.But if I were you I would wait until I was emancipated and could move out and have my own place without parental consent. Having a baby does not emancipate you. You would still have to do what your parents tell you what to do. You would only be emancipated when it comes to making medical decisions regarding yourself and the baby.
