Answer . At 16 you can not leave home without your parent's permission. If you live in a state that has emancipation laws (and not all of them do) then you can petition the court for an order of emancipation. *If* it's granted (and it's not a quick and easy thing to get) then you'd be able to mov…e out.

He already stands a chance of being arrested and charged with statutory rape so his rights became limited when he decided to sleep with the child. He should get a lawyer soon because anyone can report this relationship (a neighbor, teacher, parents, etc) to the county prosecutor. If we ignore the …risk of being charged and sentenced for Statutory rape, you have rights as a dad. If she is not willing to give you access to your child you have to go to court and sort it out regarding visitation rights, child support etc. If the mother is a minor living at home you have no right to see her if her parents are against it but they have no right to keep you from your child.

All minors who are believed to be the father of a child must present proof of paternity to the court before they can file a petition for joint custody or visitation rights. Such proof can only be established after the birth of the child and the preferred and indisputable method is through DNA test…ing. I'm not an attorney and this is not legal advice. I have been dragged through the "system" for over 11 years and what I can tell you is that as a father of any age you don't really have any rights other than to " pay for play" as it has been told to me several times. The Truth is as far as I know until the child is born you have no rights. Wich really stumps me why the " right to life" people don't get involved with this issue.Now you can read till you go blind the laws of Michigan and what you will find is that for every law you think will help you there is another law that contradicts it. this how the sate of MI can stick to it's agenda. learn the grievance process , keep all your paper work always. bring pleanty of wittnesses to any hearing and ask them to keep notes, learn your local f.o.c handbook word for word cover to cover.if you can afford the transcripts at the hearings always buy them and compare the transcripts to your notes as courts often take out anything that will incriminate them.lawyers work for courts ( in my opinion and many others. ) your in for a long haul my friend. hang in there and although the courts and often the mothers don't look after the best interests of the child YOU MUST. as the child gets older they will see whats going on and there is more to life than the first 18 years.

At 16, even though you think you are totally mature, your emotions still run wild from hormonal changes, peer pressure, etc. Have you ever heard the expression "Be careful what you ask for, because you just might get it."? It's true. When I was 16 I knew everything, and no one could tell me anything…. Then as I started to age, the older I got the dummer I became. One realizes that whatever was earth shattering at the age of 16 was so trivial it's stupid. Oh, here's another quote I love: "Want perfection? Hire a teenager, they know everything." If you are having a problem with your parents or guardians, have you tried to sit down calmly with them and discuss your issues? If you have, and it didn't work, get a second opinion. Ask someone OLDER what they would do if they were in your shoes. Finally, you may not get what you want--deal with it. Sometimes not getting everything you want is a blessing in disguise. Good luck. A minor has the same legal rights as an adult unless said rights are restricted by federal or state statutory laws. For example a minor has the right to freedom of speech, freedom of religion, right to a public education, right to medical care, right to legal representation and so forth. A minor is restricted by law from purchasing alcohol, voting, operating a motor vehicle, etc. All minors are considered to be in the legal and physical custody of their parent(s) or legal guardian until they reach the age of majority or a court rules otherwise At 16, you also have the right to make your own doctor appointments ( Planned Parenthood), get your liscence, move out with parental consent, and work a 40-hour week.

If you are 16 years old with a newborn does your mother have the right to keep the father from seeing your baby?
Answer . Yes. You are a minor who has already demonstrated some rather poor decision-making skills. It seems obvious to most rational people that it wouldn't make sense to allow you to do the same thing again. you and your baby's father were irresponsible, don't expect to be treated as though you… are an adult. It's unfortunate that your mother trusted you in the first place. If there had been a little more control, perhaps you wouldn't be a mother at 16. I'm sure you were very convincing when you told your mother how responsible you are. I'm also sure you let her know that she was unreasonable when she tried to restrict your activities. Did you say something like "None of my friends parents do that"? Did you send her on a guilt trip?. Don't be surprised that she isn't buying any of it now.. If you are still living in your Mom's house, yes. Your Mom has the right to determine who enters her house and who doesn't. But, the good news is (in Illinois) when a minor has a baby she is legally considered an adult. Long story short, you have rights! You have the rights to: live on your own; to work to pay your bills; to choose which brands of formula, diapers, clothing, and furniture you buy for your baby; to provide health insurance for you and your baby; to get your GED so you might actually have a future. If, however, you opt to forgo your rights, you are to obey the rules of your Mom's household. After all, whomsoever has the gold makes the rules. (MORE)

The only difference from before the pregnancy is that you now have the right to decide over what happens to your pregnancy/baby. A minor don't get more rights regarding her life apart from that just because she gets pregnant. Basically you just got more obligations.
What are the rights of a pregnant 16-year-old in south Carolina after she has the baby can she leave home?
No she can't leave home, have a child does not make one an adult. The parents are still responsible for the minor and her well being. Being able to have a child does not mean one can take care of the child. You still must be 18 to be considered an adult..
It's difficult to answer without knowing what specific rights you're talking about. Being pregnant/having a child does not emancipate a minor. You are still subject to your parents control and authority. They maintain all the same parental rights over you that they always had. With that said, they c…annot force you to have an abortion or to give the child up for adoption. Of course, they can make it very difficult for you to keep that child. (MORE)

There is no right weight for a 5 foot 16 year old girl. If the girl is physically active and into sports, she should weigh a bit more than one who sits around a lot.

The rights, etc., of a minor are as follows: You can be arrested or taken into custody for: 1. Delinquent offenses: acts that would be crimes if committed by adults (traffic violations, theft, assault, disorderly conduct, vandalism, etc.); Status offenses: acts that are against the law only for mi…nors (drinking alcohol, using tobacco, curfew violation, skipping school, running away, being unruly, etc.); Being dependent, neglected or abused: you can be taken from your home if your health or safety is seriously threatened or if there is a chance you may leave town to get away from the court. You can only be taken away from home if there is no other way to keep you safe. If you are arrested and, or, charged for a delinquent offence: You have a right not to answer questions, except you must tell the police your name, age, address and parents' names. Anything you say can be used against you in court. The police only have to tell you your rights if they ask you questions. You have a right to have your parents told where you are and why. You have a right to talk with a lawyer. You can ask to have one appointed for you. You have the right to stop talking anytime during questioning and wait until your lawyer comes. If you are placed in detention, you have all the above rights, plus the right to a detention hearing within three days (not counting weekends and holidays). If you are placed in detention for a status offense, your detention hearing must take place within 24 hours (not counting weekends and holidays). The law says youth should never be placed in an adult jail unless the case is transferred to another court for criminal prosecution. Youth found guilty by the juvenile court of committing an alcohol or drug offense may lose their driver's license for up to one year. Laws are very complicated and confusing even to adults. Before you talk to the police or other authorities or sign anything, it is important for you to talk with an adult who knows the law and can help you decide what is best for you. If you have to go to court, it is important to get a lawyer. If you cannot afford a lawyer and want one, ask to have one appointed for you. MINORS A minor is any person under the age of 18. When you turn 18, you have all of the rights and responsibilities of an adult except that you cannot buy or drink alcohol until you are 21. As a minor, you have the right to be supported and protected by your parents. This means they must give you necessary food, shelter, clothes, education and medical care. Your parents can choose your friends, clothes and religion. They can also give you jobs to do around the house and tell you what time you must be home. Your parents must give their permission for you to get a driver's license, get married and receive some types of medical treatment. If you refuse to obey the reasonable rules your parents have made or if you run away from home or refuse to go to school, you can be taken to a juvenile court. Everyone is required to attend school from age seven until their 16th birthday, in most states. If you are between the ages of seven and 16 and do not go to school regularly, you can be taken to juvenile court. These rights apply to all minor even in care. If you are in care due to a disability, you have the same rights but, may be restricted in for instance, getting a driver's license, etc. If you are in foster care, then you have the same rights as above however, your foster parents will act as your parents regarding the above rights.
