No a 17 year old cannot move out of the house without her parents consent, If you leave your house before you are 18 years old ... especially since the guy is 20 .. your parents can have him arrested, and I'm sure they will. Once 18 you can do whatver you want, until then sorry hun America's rules. Him being 20 and you being 17 .. that is considered statuatory rape

-- well, if you live in Michigan, the age of Majority is 18, but of you move out at 17, the police will not take you home. You technically cannot be reported as a runaway, because according to MCL, you are NOT considered a minor. a Minor is a person LESS THAN the age of 17, and the juvenile court will have no say in what happens to you.

technically yes but no too because you shouldn't be pregnant anyways

Not only can you move in together, you can get married!

Yes *** No. Being pregnant/having a child does not emancipate a minor. When you turn 18 you can move.

Only if she has permission from her parents. Being pregnant does make them an adult.

Only with parents permission or if she is emancipated.

Yes she can since she has their permission. Or if she has obtained an order of emancipation from the court. Just being pregnant does not change the requirements to move out.

Well, Yes you can if you need help with the baby and want the father to be by your side but only if the parents of your boyfriend and your parents say its ok.

No it is not illegal. I was 17 and pregnant when my boyfriend moved in with me. He was 21. Its not a big deal and then i just went and got married to him. In certain states you can get married with just a doctors note saying your pregnant. In Maryland is where i did it.

If your parents give you permission. If they don't, no, you may not leave home.

It depends on how old your boy-friend is and your state laws regarding that.

that's if your parents will let you and they don't say anything

The only way i can find out right now is if u get emancipated and that's what im looking for rightnow cuz im 16 and pregnant and my boyfriend is 18 too. If i find anythign else out, then i will write you back

If you are 16 and living in the UK than its completely up to you.

A 17 year old is still the responsibility of the parents. Being pregnant does not factor into the situation.

No, but there is a very good chance boyfriend can face criminal charges for having sex with her (at 15 she is legally incapable of consenting to sex).

Yes, you can if you are both emancipated minors. You would have to check your local laws regarding emancipation.

Not unless you get emancipated (the pregnancy don't do that) or married.

You should move in with your boyfriend when you feel your ready to.
