I am 15 years old and i am pregnant. I do have a job & supply myself with the things i need and i have bought every single item that my baby has with my own money. The father is in the picture and we both strive to continue in school and graduate. i do make enough to get a cheap 1 bed, 1 bath apartment & i have transportation to get from the doctors, school & work. Is emancipation accountable for me?
Almost certainly not. You would only be able to get married with your parents permission, and you’re probably not in any position to support yourself on your own, even without the pregnancy issue. The statistics on the outcomes from teen pregnancies are not hopeful. You could possibly overcome this difficult start in life but it won’t be easy. You may never get a college degree,and you may never get a decent job.
If you have a support system you have a better shot. Even if your parents don’t seem to be perfect, they may yet be advantage to you.
