It depends on what the law is in your state...my guess is that if you are asking this question, you are either the 20 year old, the 16 year old or the parent of the 16 year old. No matter which one you are, try to imagine what it would be like if you were in the position of the other two. If you are the 20 year old, take full responsibility. Sit down with the 16 year old and her parents and own up to it. Explain to the parents exactly what your plans are to take full financial responsibility for the child. But it doesn't end there. You will be a parent for the rest of your life, tasked with raising the child to the point where he/she is independent. If you own up and take responsibility, the parents may likely see that putting you in jail would not be good for the child, their daughter, or the situation in general. Keep in mind that the parents will probably not have a favorable opinion of you from the outset...you must show them that you know you made a mistake and are willing to take responsibility for it. It will be a difficult conversation, and emotions will run high, but it is the right thing to do. Let them yell at you and vent, they will probably need to. In the end I bet they will respect you for owning up to it. If you are the parent, take the above into consideration. A man in jail doesn't buy diapers and formula, or make a good daddy, and a criminal record may inhibit him from getting a good job and providing support when he gets out of jail. If he owns up to it and takes responsibility, I'd give him a chance to make things right, as much as he can in the given situation. Suggest the same kind of meeting referenced above, invite his parents if you feel it would be appropriate, and give everyone a few days to think things over before the meeting is held. Try not to lose your temper, and try to keep the discussion productive. You are concerned with the welfare of your daughter and the child. I know this next comment will sting, but this never would have happened without a failure of some kind on the part of both you and the parents of the 20 year old. Own up to that as well. If you are the 16 year old, you'd better make sure that the above referenced meeting happens and is a productive one. If not, you are the one who will bear the consequences. Too many young women are left alone with a child to care for. Emotional and financial support from the father, your parents, his parents, and your family in general will be critical. Above all, seek the most productive solution. Everyone involved should keep in mind that you will have to deal with each other on some level for many years to come...don't burn any bridges, this child will be a source of joy for many years to come...get off to a good start... HOWEVER, if the guy is a total dirtbag, don't hesitate to throw him in jail...it'll give him time to think things over...
