as soon as you turn 18 its the law actually now the legal age is 17 so and you can get rid of an order of protection and the age legally at 16 but at 16 you have to come up with a good reason for getting rid of it and at 17 you become legal age you should be able to and if the order of protection is off then yes you can get married

your parents have the restraining order against him so you can still live with him as long as he stays away from your parents.

Be sure your girlfriend is not keeping in touch with her ex boyfriend first. If she is not then she needs to report him to the police and have her parents put a Restraining Order against him.

Yes, he could have charges brought against him. Until you are an adult, your parents are responsible for you.

haha well... I had this same problem a few months ago. Talk to your parents with your boyfriend. Have your parents talk to his parents. Try to prove to your parents that they can trust your boyfriend- that's what I did. My boyfriend and I actually took our parents out to dinner and we all talked about it, and it all worked out in the end :)

Yes, there are no laws against dating but as minors your parents have to be OK with it of course.

They can if they have reason to believe he has commited an offence.

you can't make your parents get along with your boyfriend, they either get along or they don't

my parents got a protective order against my boyfriend when i was 16. i am now 17 and i will be 18 in 4 months. my caseworker and the judge explained that once you turn 18 the charges can be dropped bc they were filed by your parents in your name. you will be a legal adult so you are the only one who can file or erase the charges at that time.

have you tried talking to your own parents about this? Ask your boyfriends parents what they have against you. Also have you ever thought that his parents might be a bit overprotective! the girl in the pink cardigan x

Tell them, it's better than an older boyfriend. Ask the age difference between your parents and relate it to you and your boyfriend.

"Mum, my crush just asked me out. Is it okay if I go to the new cafรฉ with him today?" is what I tried. Or, "Dad, my crush asked me out and I said yes so boo-ya I'm goin' anyway." Hope this helped!!

you should get your first boyfriend when you and your parents are ready

No, a judge would never allow your parents to do that to your boyfriend.

You can't force your parents to let you have a boyfriend. Though, you can try to reason with them and they can let you have a boyfriend. If you think you are mature enough to have a boyfriend; tell your parents why you want a boyfriend and that it's not because everyone else has one. Have your parents meet him or invite him over for dinner so they know he's a good person. If they still say no beg until they let you

If you're in the US... No judge in any state is going to custody of a minor to the parent of her boyfriend, and especially a boyfriend who got her pregnant.

It depends on his age if he is 4 years older or if she is under 16 then yes

User Avatar

yes until you are over 18 they can press charges and he can go to jail

If you are a minor or he is a minor or adult yes, if your boyfriend is not listening to what your parents are saying then they must see he is not treating you properly and they can take a Restraining Order out on him. You may well love your boyfriend, but your parents have the wisdom of knowing if your boyfriend is not of good character and they love and want to protect you. The biggest worry is that you could become pregnant and then you are really in a mess. Listen to your parents because there will be many boyfriends for you in the future until you finally meet the true one you should be with and eventually get married.

Well of course you can but it may depend if your parents were to allow you to have a boyfriend or not.

you let them get to know him and take your time,Ask your boyfriend to come visit your house and show your parents how good and responsible enough to take care of you.Or, do the opposite.Show your parents how you can be responsible enough to have a boyfriend,parents usually are afraid you might eventually be getting to close with your boyfriend that then you end up by being obsessed with him.
