You are responsible to pay for your child's health, pregnant or not, as long as they are minors.

You (parents) are responsible for her care and medical care until she is eighteen. You should consult with an attorney to determine if you could get some financial help from the father or his parents. Also there may be statutory rape involved.

No it is not correct that the girls parents have to pay the medical bills not only in the state of Tennesseee for the matter in any state in the world . Because the boy and his family are equally responsible for the mess in which the girl is in, so the boys paren must pay half the hospital bill.

If a minor is legally emancipated it is assumed that they have no more connection with the parent, and that the parent is no longer financially responsible. Therefore, the child is held responsible for bills.

Not exactly , here parents from both the sides, that is the girls parents and also the boys parents should pay for the medical bills. It should not be left entirely on the girls parents as the boy was more responsible for this mess.

It is not the parents, but the estate that is responsible for any remaining debts. That will include medical bills. If there is not enough in the estate to cover them, someone will not get paid.

Not without their permission in California. Until they reach 18 the parents are responsible for him.

It depends partially on the age of the children. If they are not adults, the parents are responsible. If the children are above the age of majority, and not on their parents' insurance, they should be responsible for their own debts.

No unless you specifically guarantee payment.

The estate is responsible for the medical debts. The exception would be if the children were the insurance holder or co-signed the medical agreement.

It will depend on the specific circumstances. If the parents are providing medical insurance, they may be on the hook. If they signed something during the admissions process they may be responsible.

Parents are responsible for their children until they reach the age of majority or are emancipated.

Without knowing your mothers medical history it is challenging to answer this question. Some medical conditions are passed on and can cause infertility. Speak to your parents and ask about any medical conditions that could have prevented their timely pregnancy.

{| |- | Yes you can. The age of majority in California is 18. Once your reach that age, your parents are no longer responsible for you. |}

Children are not responsible for the debts of their parents. The estate must settle the debts. The exception would be if a child signed any paperwork gaurenteeing the medical costs.

The age of majority in Wisconsin, like most states, is 18. Until that point the parents remain responsible for them until that age. If the minor is still covered by the parent's insurance, the parents will be held responsible.
