Correct. Once a minor has a child, she is emancipated, meaning she is now considered an adult and independent of her parents. No, a mother who is a minor is presumed by law to have the same rights to her child as she would if she were an adult. Parents cannot force her to sign over custodial rights, have an abortion or place a child for adoption. If the she feels she is in need of assistance she can contact the state's department of family and children's services or Birthright 1-800-556-4900, I don't think so

The mother would be allowed to testify if she was opposed to the action, and the court would make the final determination.

that depends on if the mother has custody over her daughter or not. It also depends on how old the daughter is. If she is under the legal age limit, then the mother is still responsible and makes all decisions for her. If the mother does not have full custody over the daughter, then the mother and the father of that child must come to an agreement on the living whereabouts of the daughter. If the mother has legal custody over the daughter and the daughter is not of legal age yet, then yes, the mother can bring the daughter over too.

That answer depends on several factors including the mother's age, ability to provide for the child and the environment where the child will be living. If a father is named on the birth certificate or parentage established after the fact in a court of law, the father has as many rights as the mother in terms of custody and support.
