Um short answer, no.
To be emancipated in Arkansas, first you need to be the subject of a DFS case or custody proceeding. Then emancipation can be filed in court if neglect, abuse, etc is suspected. The petitioner must also be over 16
Having a child does not affect the process other than if the father of the child is also the custodian of the minor requesting emancipation.
