    Speak Up! - View Question #18159


    printer friendly version

    Question:

    If I'm pregnant am I emancipated or can my parents still make decisions for me. What about my unborn child/baby? Who makes decisions for the child?



    Answer:

    Even though you are a minor, you still have the right to make decisions for your child.

    Solely being pregnant without meeting the other requirements in the statute will not constitute being emancipated. You must meet the rest of the requirements in the statute. See Emancipation under the Laws section of this website.

    There are many other requirements and rules involved in the emancipation process. You can Contact the Arizona Children's Law Center at 602-258-3434 x 2660 for more information after you have exhausted the resources on the lawforkids.org website.

    Its you having the baby, so therefore you make the decisions, they can't force you to do anything really, just threaten you.
