    Common Questions:

    If I get pregnant, am I automatically emancipated?

    Under normal circumstances you are medically emancipated, meaning you can make independent medical decisions concerning your pregnancy and your baby. However, you otherwise remain under your parents' jurisdiction and control. Pregnancy and parenthood generally make it much more difficult to emancipate from your parents' authority.

    If I move in with a boyfriend or relative who supports me, can I get emancipated?

    No. Emancipation (where allowed) is for minors who are capable of supporting themselves. Also, the court is going to frown on the idea of your being emancipated so that you can move in with a boyfriend or girlfriend - don't expect it to happen.

    I don't want to live independently, but can I get emancipated from my mom to live with my dad?

    No. Your parents need to resolve their custody disputes through the custody court.

    I live in a state that does not permit emancipation of minors. Can I Get emancipated?

    No. Your state does not permit emancipation.
