The state does not have an emancipation status. Emancipation cases are accepted on individual basis, however, very seldom does the court grant early emancipation rights to a minor. Here's a link with some info on emancipation in Indiana: http://www.bostoncoop.net/lcd/emancipation/indiana.html I also found this link, which I thought was interesting, and from what I've heard from other people (attorneys, court officials, etc), it's accurate in the regard that emancipation is actually a rare thing (which is not to say that it doesn't occur): http://experts.about.com/q/920/1212970.htm BEGIN QUOTE: Subject:Minor Emancipation Question I know you practice law in Indiana, but I am trying to find out what age a minor has to be to petition for emancipation in Kentucky. I've searched the Kentucky Revised Statutes. Any ideas where I can look to find the minimum age? Answer I don't think there is a minimum age to file for emancipation. YOu file if you are younger than 18. What you have to show is a plan for living, a plan for supporting yourself and employment. It is a VERY rare thing, VERY. In the 12 years I have practiced I have never seen it done. It is done for professional athletes, like ice skater, etc. It is a very rare thing for a normal, average citizen. Denise F. Hayden Attorney at Law Indianapolis IN USA END QUOTE The state does not have grounds nor procedures for the emancipation of a minor. Indiana Family Services investigate reported cases of child abuse and/or neglect and take the appropriate action needed. Emancipation of a minor is only allowed for the purpose of said minor receiving medical care or in some cases for a pregnant minor to be eligible for public assistance. In such cases the minor will be under the supervision of the division of state social services.

No, you are considered a minor in all states unless you have went through the emancipation process.

{| |- | No Indiana does not have an emancipation statute. You are not emancipated just because you are pregnant. Being a parent under the age of majority does not change that. However, the minor does have rights when it comes to the child and should contact social services in their community to discuss their options. |}

No, emancipated or not. It's wrong and a crime for the adult.

The parents either must approve or minor must prove it is in best interest to be emancipated.

Indiana does not have established grounds nor procedures for the emancipation of minors. A minor is considered emancipated if they marry or enlist in the military both of which require the consent of the parent(s) or legal guardian. One exception with limitations is to allow a pregnant minor to be eligible for public benefits to receive health care. This does not mean the minor female would be allowed to live independently of parents or adult supervision.
