If 15 yr old girl 16 yr old boy are having baby and want to adopt out can parents of kids make them keep the baby or can the kids legally put baby up for adoption?
No, only the parents decide this and the adoption papers is the only legally binding contract a minor can sign. When it comes to your child you have the same rights as an adult. No one can force you to keep the child, abort or give it up for adoption.

If underage mother wants to put baby up for adoption but 18-year-old father wants custody and girls parents are threatening to file charges against boy if he tries to gain custody isn't that blackmail?
Answer . \nIt's going to be a catch 22, you have a right to the child, but you could be charged with stat. rape, best to seek a lawyer.
Minors have the same legal rights to their child as does an adult mother unless a court rules otherwise. Parents of a pregnant minor cannot force the minor to have an abor…tion, place the child for adoption or sign over her parental rights. If the parents choose not to support their daughter during her pregnancy or afterwards, the minor female can petition the court for emancipation rights. The court will grant limited emancipation privileges to the minor female to allow her to be eligible for public assistance (such as Medicaid) during her pregnancy and afterwards for herself and her child. In most situations the minor female is placed in a group or foster home where she will be able to finish her education, learn parenting skills, receive guidance counseling and so forth. For legal assistance and counseling the minor might wish to contact the department of family and children's services in the state where she resides or, Birthright 1-800-550-4900 - See Link
Nope, you have to sign the papers. If you don't the child is yours. Parents can't make you give away your child.
Answer . With respect to how state laws differ, generally when a parent is under 18 they are still considered a minor and cannot have custody of a child. Generally, it wou…ld be the parents of the 17 year old, or another adult, that would hold guardianship of the baby until the 17 year old tyurned 18.. Of course, there are differences in state laws, so this answer only speaks in generalities. Check on what the specific state laws say.
IF YOU ARE STILL IN SCHOOL, TALK TO YOUR COUNSELOR AND THEY WILL GET YOU HELP. IF YOU ARE NOT IN SCHOOL, AND KNOW OF A MINISTER OR HAVE A FRIEND WHO KNOWS OF A MINISTER, TRY T…O SEEK THEIR HELP. MENTAL ABUSE IS ABUSE AND IS NOT A HEALTHY SITUATION FOR YOU OR YOUR BABY. THE CATHOLIC CHURCH HAS WONDERFUL PEOPLE WHO CAN HELP YOU AND/OR DIRECT YOU TO A SAFE PLACE UNTIL YOUR SITUATION IS RESOLVED. YOUR TOWN OR COUNTY ALSO HAS SOCIAL WORKERS THAT CAN HELP YOU; PHONE YOUR LOCAL OR COUNTY COURT HOUSE FOR IMMEDIATE ASSISTANCE.
no they cant, but if your having a good relationship you could get married with the person all you need is a doctors note saying your pregnant and you could get married withou…t parent permision in Maryland. I know this because when i was 16 years of age the same thing happen to me and i wanted to know too but i found out about that and i got married. Anyways no they cant make you put the baby for adoption anywhere in the usa without your permission if you want or not.
Regardless of the circumstances that is statutory rape. The girl, if she was 18 when she had sexual intercourse, is an adult while the 16 year-old is not considered an adult i…n the eyes of the law. Legally, I do not believe he can be held legally responsible for the well-being of the child. I would consult a lawyer about this issue, some lawyers give free consults, I would look into that.
If a 15 yr old boy gets a 22 yr old girl pregnant and they are in love will she go to jail and what will happen to the baby?
There is a good chance she could go to jail.. it depends on the law in your State.
IF unwed woman says that you could be the father and she wants to put baby up for adoption and the father want to keep the baby if it is his what does he need to do to make that happen?
Get a lawyer right away!
i believe it is not okay because it can still be considered statutory rape. she is a legal adult and he is still considered a kid. because a 16 year old with a 19 year old can… be considered rape also.
Can a 19 year old mom give up her new baby for adoption even if the grandparents want the baby and have sole custody of her other two kids?
dont give it away you will regret it and the grandparents would be so disapointed in you, giving up your child means you love the sex and not what happens at the end, iff you …are giving up your child, why didnt you use pills or a condom, it is pathetic, please dont petray your child!
Yes as she is a 17 year old girl, with no way of supporting her baby, it would be in the best interest to give the baby for adoption without the parents consent.
If a 15 yr girl and a 17 yr old boy have a baby will the boy be charged with any assaults even though they planned to have this baby?
As the girl is fifteen years only the boy will be arrested for having sex with a minor and as both are minors they will be tried in the juvenile court.
yes. there was a 12 uyear old that had a baby once i believe.
This is a huge question and let my answer not influence your personal choice too much.The way i see it is you have 2 paths you can take 1. You can keep your child and things t…urn out right however without parents help it can be difficult but to do this u need to think about the costs. -diapers can cost a fortune -formula -crib -medical expenses if u don't think you can provide a healthy and happy life for your child i would suggest adoption. The Children's Home is a wonderful adoption center.
Yes, it's normal and sometimes jokingly called 'baby fever'. However, having a baby is far more complex than wanting one, as I'm sure you have been told. I would caution stron…gly against acting on your desire to have a baby if you're 14 years old, as having a baby is a lot more complicated than playing with one or even babysitting one (feeding, care-taking, etc. are not the only difficulties of parenting). For various psychological and physiological reasons it is a bad idea for you to become a mother at this time, but the desire to have a baby is pretty natural and I'm sure a lot of girls feel it, in their teens and otherwise.
If you are a minor under 15, you will not be able to do it without some legal help. You can utilize "safe surrender" laws and call Social Services. Adoption is pretty severe…. Please get wise counsel (legal and otherwise) before attempting this with your chil.d
