No.... at 16.... if pregnant you are emancipated in the matters of your health or the baby's. You can make the decision to have an abortion, put the baby up for adoption, or even keep it and there is nothing that your parents can do about it. You do not have to wait for 18 to become emancipated. ou have to be 16 and can prove that you can live on your own with out your parents assistance. You also have the right to live with the baby's father.

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.

When you are pregnant you are automatically emancipated and therefore it does not matter if you are a runaway.

no. you need to move out of your parents house, get a job or your GED, then get yourself emancipated

No, you are emancipated by turning 18 not by the pregnancy.

Tennessee does not have an emancipation statute.

Unfortunately yes. The only reason being that a seventeen year old is still a minor. On the other hand, if you are an emancipated minor then the answer would be no.

Being pregnant does not emancipate a minor. It does give them certain rights in regards to providing for the welfare of their child.

This would vary from state to state, but the short answer is yes. Of course, I assume you mean legally. In 1974, at the age of seventeen, in the state of California I moved into an apartment with a roomate and finished high school as an emancipated minor. If you are married at seventeen you do not need to be emancipated.

Nowhere in the US, unless you have been declared an emancipated minor by the court, in which case you wouldn't be asking the question. In some states, you can do so if you prove you are pregnant and a judge grants permission.

Pregnancy does not emancipate you in any state.

Not unless they are emancipated or have a court order.
