That's what I thought

That's true. And there is no job that a 14 year old can hold that will pay enough to provide rent, utilities, food...not to mention she has no transportation to and from a job...and she's in school, so her hours would be limited. There is no way a judge will grant this request.

The stipulations are irrelevant in her case. There is NO emancipation statute in Indiana.

None of which would apply to her.

I used to live in Fort Wayne. You can be emancipated but not at 14.
OP -have you gone to any of the Hope Centers? They have a lot of resources to help you not get in this situation again. They can also help with clothes, diapers etc. I think they may help with birth control after baby is born.

Also, where did you find that? I've found that exact statute but not for Indiana. And this 2012 article supports the no emancipation.

It doesn't look like it went through of lasted because the only emancipation listed in the state code now, is in reference to automotive racing.

Sweetie, you have been through a lot in the last two years. Pregnancy without emotional support is hard for anyone to go through, much less at your age. I remember being your age and I couldn't imagine handling your load with the amount of life experience that age 14 is dealt. You have been given another day to live, love, and make different choices. The only thing that we can control in this life is how we react to things. You have complete control over that, even in awful situations. How have your parents reacted to this? Are they supportive or angry? Is adoption something you would consider? I don't know your stance on God, but I believe that everything happens with his direction or permission. The good and the bad. And good can come from bad...go to Him. You are a mom now, regardless of how old you are. I know that you will make the best decision for you and your children.
Matthew 11:28-30 (New International Version)




28 "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
