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.
