The pregnancy and the divorce has nothing to do with it. A minor cannot move out without parent's consent. There are some loopholes however, but I would STRONGLY suggest researching the laws before you do anything, especially depending on the age difference between you two. If the "adult" is much older than the "minor" depending on how old the minor is, the adult can get into some serious trouble and possibly receive jail time. They register them as a sex offender and he has to live with that the rest of his life. My boyfriend and I had this trouble a while back and he faced this but we got out of it, so you need to be extremely careful! Other than that I would suggest waiting until you are 18, or getting one of your parent's agreement.

AnswerThe pregnancy is irrelevant and the divorce is irrelevant. A minor cannot leave home without the permission of their custodial parent, unless they have been emancipated. AnswerThere is another issue here that needs to be addressed, and that is the ages of the minor and the adult involved in the relationship. All states have laws pertaining to minor and adult relationships. Even if the minor is of the age of sexual consent as established by state laws, there are many other laws that could result in very serious consequence for the adult. A few are, contributing to the deliquency of a minor, corruption of the morals of a minor, coercion and/or intimidation of a person of authority, supplying alcohol to an underaged person, and so forth. The persons involved might wish to consider consulting with an attorney before discussing the issue with anyone else, or taking any further action concerning the relationship.

Hopefully, a lawsuit by the parents of the minor...in the case that the intercourse was not consentual. If the minor WANTED to have sex with the adult, there is really nothing the parents can do.

No. Getting pregnant does not emancipate a minor or give them any adult rights. Turning 18 emancipates a minor.

No. At 15 you are a pregnant minor. Being pregnant does not make you an adult and you are still the responsiblity of your parents.

i think once the child is born, the minor is considered an adult. and has emancipation rights from their parents.

User Avatar

The short answer is no. Until you are an adult in the eyes of the law, the parents are responsible for the minor and where they live, even for a pregnant minor.

No. Being pregnant/becoming a parent does not give a minor any adult rights. The minor is still subject to the control and supervision of their parents until they turn 18.

only if the minor has their parents permission

User Avatar

With parents permission. Having a baby at 15 doesn't make you an adult. You are a minor that is pregnant.

User Avatar

Yes it is illegal. Not only the adult for having sex and becoming pregnant by the child, but also the child's parents who agreed the activity.

No. Being pregnant/giving birth does not emancipate a minor in any state of the US. You are still subject to the control and authority of your parents.

User Avatar

No you are a minor and not an adult even though you will be a mother. Your parents are responsible for you and now your baby.

User Avatar

Yes, but if a minor gets an adult female pregnant, he's obligated to pay child support. see links below

User Avatar

No! Being pregnant does not automatically make you an adult. Adulthood is only accomplished by age - You are still a "minor child" by legal standards.

User Avatar

No, being pregnant does not make one an adult. You have to become an adult through age or a court order.

User Avatar

No, you are not considered an adult. Being pregnant/having a child does not emancipate a minor.

User Avatar

if you still live with your parents then no. they can claim you on their taxes as a dependent and that makes you a minor. if you want to become an adult, get yourself emancipated

User Avatar

No. Being silly enough to get pregnant does not qualify you to be an adult. You are still a minor and your parents are still responsible for you.

Pregnancy does not emancipate a minor. Until she is an adult, her parents have the responsibilty to maintain her.

User Avatar

no the pregnant teens parents can not decide if the teen keeps the baby or not.

User Avatar

If you are 18 or older. If not you are pregnant minor and still your parents responsiblity and they can tell you what to do.

User Avatar

As minors itยดs your parents deciding this. You being pregnant has nothing to do with it.

User Avatar

No, your ability to get pregnant does not make you a legal adult.

User Avatar

No. Pregnant or not, you're a minor until you turn 18.

User Avatar

No, just because you are going to have a baby doesn't make you an adult. You are still a minor except that you will be a child having a child. Your parents are still responsible for you.
