Most courts will need proof that the minor can support themselves. Other common requirements looked at include their education status, employment history, legal records and the family situation. Most will require parental permission.

That's a question for an attorney in the state in which you were emancipated. However, assuming the emancipation was not conditional (such as you remaining in the service), you probably are. The real question is this: If you're emancipated, what are you calling "home?" If what you're referring to as "home" is where your parents live, an emancipated individual would be a guest in their home and obviously could be invited to remain (or not) at their pleasure.

Having a child does not emancipate a minor. To become emancipated, the minor would have to petition the court, and it would have to be granted by a judge. It's rarely granted in any state. The fact that a minor has a child does not give them any advantage, and in fact, it generally makes it even moredifficult for them to become emancipated (for a multitude of reasons).
