Legally, until you are 18, your parents are responsible for you. You can have yourself emancipated at 16 if you can prove you are able to take care of yourself and go to school. Child services won't touch you at 17 even though technically they are supposed to. Here is a site that has info that may help you out.

No, pregnancy does not immediately emancipate you, nor does childbirth. It does give you some rights regarding health care issues etc, but you are still a minor.

The emancipation process can be lengthy enough, and difficult enough that at 17, I would just wait the next year out and then move on.

In order to become emancipated, as a rule, you have to go before a judge and show him three main things.

1) that you can financially care for yourself on your own, that means pay the rent, utilities groceries etc, on your own. Not living with a friend, not living with a relative, on your very own.
2) You have to have a good reason. I want to live with my bf/gf, I hate my parents, my parents rules suck are NOT good enough.
3) as a rule, your parents have to agree to it.
