You will be considered an emancipated minor during your hospital stay and will have full right to make any decisions regarding you and your child's treatment and hospital stay without any control from your parents or gaurdian. You will also have full control of your child's future medical treatment, however you will not be an emancipated minor without going to court to obtain this status.

No you are not. You are medically emancipated though which means you are allowed to make medical decisions regarding you and the baby.

No, only when it comes to making desicions about the baby and she also have medical emancipation (to make medical desicions) for both her and the baby.

Having a baby does not make one 18 years old. You have to be an adult to be emancipated.

Nope, not in any of the US states is a minor emancipated by having a baby. The only thing you get is emancipation making decisions for the baby and medical decisions for yourself.

No, having a baby does not emancipate someone. They are still considered a minor and are not adults. The parents are still responsible for their child.

There is no state where a minor becomes emancipated by having a child. The age of emancipation remains 18. The minor mother is only medically emancipated and emancipated regarding making decisions for her child.

Only to make decisions regarding the baby and medical decisions for themselves. They are not emancipated in any other way.

No, pregnancy does not emancipate anyone in any state. As a minor mother you are only emancipated regarding your own health and your baby.

Having a baby has no affect on your legal status. If you are under 18, you are still a minor.

{| |- | No, you are not. Being pregnant does not make one an adult. It certainly doesn't demonstrate the ability to take care of ones self. And you have to be at least 16 to be considered for emancipation. |}

No. Being pregnant/having a child does not emancipate a minor in any state of the US.

No. Getting pregnant/giving birth does not emancipate a minor in any state of the US.

No. A 15 year old is still a minor, but now one with a child. Becoming pregnant does not make a minor emancipated. To become emancipated a minor child needs to go before a judge to have him/her determine if she can support herself and the baby. The judge will want to know the means of support and other living conditions. Being emancipated means that a person can support themselves, have a job, pay the rent, pay for babysitting, and do all things needed to live. I doubt that a judge will allow a 15 year old minor to become emancipated with a baby without the needed support.

Yes, you become adult and emancipated at 18 with or without a baby.

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

No. You still need a formal emancipation. At 16 You are however considered emancipated in the matters of your health and the baby. Whether you choose to keep the baby, put it up for adoption or have an abortion.

User Avatar

No. When a minor have a baby she is only emancipated regarding her own health and the baby. Everything else is the same as before.

User Avatar

A minor mother can and have the right to make decisions about her baby. If they think she can handle the baby and allow her to get married the baby will come with her. She will then be emancipated since she is married.

User Avatar

Not unless you've been emancipated. Having a child does not emancipate a minor.

User Avatar

No, not in any state are you emancipated due to pregnancy or being a parent.

User Avatar

No, not automatically. Medically you are so you can make your own medical decisions. (Coming from a Paramedics regulations you are emancipated and able to make your own medical decisions if you are a minor who is pregnant.)

User Avatar

You petition the court and prove to a judge that you can support yourself. He will want to know your monthly income, rent, payments, job, and other info about how you expect to live. Having a baby does not make you emancipated. It just makes you a teen with a baby.
