{| |- | No, it isn't likely. Being a parent, or being pregnant, has no bearing on your ability to support yourself and your child. Only about half the states allow you to get emancipated. Of those most require you to be at least 16 to get emancipated. |}

Being charged with a crime does not make one an adult.

Being charged with a crime does not make him an adult.

No a 15 year old can not be emancipated in Iowa. A child must be 16 years old in order to be emancipated in Iowa.

No, unless the child is emancipated. Otherwise, the parent must wait until the child reaches the age of majority (usually 18) to do so.

No, 16 is the minimum age to apply.

If you live in the US... A parent cannot kick a 15-year-old out in any state of the US. A parent is responsible for providing for their child until the child reaches the age of majority (18) or they are legally emancipated (there no situations in which a 15-year-old would be emancipated). However, they certainly can send the child to live with a relative, send the child to boot camp, military school, etc.

It is possible to get emancipated in some states at the age of 15. Most have a minimum age of 16.

{| |- | Probably not going to happen. Most states that allow emancipation require one to be at least 16 years old. And being 15 with a child makes it pretty difficult to show the ability to support themselves and the child. |}

No, the minimum age is 16 in North Carolina.

No, the only thing different is that you are allowed to make medical decisions regarding yourself and your child.

In Florida, a child that is at least 15 years old can apply to be emancipated from their parents. It is ultimately up to the judge to make the decision though.

In the state of Colorado, a child must be at least 15 years of age to petition for emancipation. There are other requirements as well, such as the child cannot be living with their parents at the time of the petition.

No, emancipation is age 18 and only can be sooner if petitioner to the court and a court order is issued to that effect. Just because a male fathers a child while he is a minor does not make him an emancipated adult. He does have an obligation to support his child.

Not at that young an age. You have to be 16 to apply for emancipation.

{| |- | No 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, you must be at least 16 to apply for emancipation in Nevada.

you really can't unless you are legally emancipated.. sorry.

can a minor in the state of Missouri be emancipated with parental permission at the age of 15

that person before me didnt know anything im 15 and im emancipated because im pregnant i was 14 when i first got emancipated and yeah i live in Utah. Although you will go back to a minor after the child is born unless you get married while you are emancipated. Just talk to your doctor if you are and he/she will tell you all you need to know.

Yes child can be adapted at the age of 15 as long as it is not an offence

The duty to provide support for a minor child shall continue until the child reaches the age of majority, dies, marries, or becomes emancipated, whichever first occurs. However, the court has discretion to direct either or both parents to provide financial assistance to a child who has not previously married or become emancipated, who is enrolled in and attending a secondary school, and who has attained the age of majority before completing his or her secondary school education, provided that such financial assistance shall not be required after a child attains 20 years of age. Section §19-6-15 of the Georgia Codesee links

when the child can spell. so with your child about.. 15

No, parents are responsible legally and financially for their child(ren) until they reach the state's legal age of majority. The legal age of majority in all states except for one is 18; in Nebraska it is 19. No, you are responsible for your child until the age of 18 or unless the child is emancipated (16 in most states) and that requires legal paperwork. no you can't
