In most states, having a child automatically emancipates a minor. Check with your local courthouse, who should be able to tell you if this applies in the state of Delaware. * There are no US states where pregnancy or the minor already having a child constitutes emancipation rights. Delaware does not have emancipation status. But as in all US states if the minor is in need of public aid she can contact the state social services who will petition the court for limited emancipation rights to allow the minor to be eligible for such public assistance as Medicaid.
