If I'm pregnant and 17, does that mean i can get emancipated just for that reason? Do the parents have to have consent for it?

Georgia emancipation laws on pregnant teens and parental consent.

  1. Doubtful a judge will approve emancipation by reason of pregnancy alone.

  2. That is not a reason for emancipation. It is all about financial independence. You need to decide what you are seeking emancipation for, and then consult an attorney. Are you seeking to get married without parental consent?
