If the father has moved out of the state and has not spent much time with the baby can the mother give custody to her parents if she gets in trouble with the law without the father knowing or consent?

Answer

If the father is paying child support then he has some rights and if he doesn't and there is no court document then you don't have to comply to his wishes. However, if he is not living in a desireable neighborhood or does drugs, etc., then you can fight it by going to Child Welfare, but you will run the risk of losing your child if Welfare doesn't find your mother fit to look after your child while you serve time (if you have to.) I suggest you do the easy thing and clean up your act, because Child Welfare or the court system doesn't look kindly on one or both parents getting into trouble with the law, drugs of any sort and lazy parenting.

Answer

Child support and custody are considered to separate issues in U.S. courts. In most states the court considers the length of time the parent has been absent from the child life, which means no contact of any sort. Generally a parent who has not had some interaction with their child within the space of a year is deemed an "absentee parent" and a judge can if he or she chooses terminate parental rights.

Unless parental rights have been terminated by the court or voluntarily relinquished by the biological parent, the court will not allow custodial rights to be transferred.

No. The person would still be under the legal custody of their parents. The issue of the friend's mother giving consent is irrelevant. The mother could also get into serious trouble by allowing the minor to live in her home w/o the consent of her/his parents.

No, in your state 14 year olds can get married with parental consent

Yes IF the 17 year old daughter is still under the parents custody. If they have been disowned, or have disowned their parents, or are under the legal custody of someone else, such as a grandparent or other person, then the biological parents cannot get in trouble, but if the daughter is still under their custody while living elsewhere, she is still in their control by the governments standards and they can still be in trouble.

The parents are in trouble as well they cant change the law regarding age of consent.

{| |- | A minor can live where ever the parents give permission. However, 15 is below the age of consent to sexual contact in most places. The parents cannot consent to breaking the law, it could place them in trouble as well. |}

At 16 she is considered a minor in her state (age of consent in Cali is 18) and there is no such thing as parental consent. A minor can not give consent because legally she is not considered mature enough to do so and the parents, or anyone else, also have no right to do so. So yes, both you, and her parents, can get into trouble for this. I'm also quote appalled that parents would plan, by give "consent", to having their 16yo impregnanted at such a young age.

Yes but if the minor is below age of consent and you have sex it will be statutory rape.

Yes, any adult who allows an absentee minor to reside in their home, knowing that it is against the wishes of the minor's parents or guardian is subject to prosecution under the criminal statutes of the state of residency. If a minor allows a friend who is also a minor to stay in their home, the adult(s) have the obligation to notify the parents and if the parents object the minor must be returned to parental custody, by whatever means necessary.

Answer:If you are at the age of consent he can not get into trouble.

User Avatar

no you cant get in trouble for dating a girl that's above the consent age but you can get in trouble if you and the girl have sex because you're under the age of consent.

User Avatar

you can only get in trouble if the 16 year olds parents file for statuatory rape.

User Avatar

Well, he would if you don't have your parents' consent. If you two really love each other, and your parents approve of him, then he wouldn't really get in trouble.

User Avatar

No, it is not legal. The age of consent is 16. He has committed criminal sexual abuse. And the parents don't get to consent to breaking the law. It would be like they were pimping out their daughter! That could land them in all sorts of trouble.

User Avatar

No , not usually.Don't do it without permission or you may get your Dad in trouble.

User Avatar

Age of consent is 16 there so it's legal. Parents can not give consent to let their minor have sex, just for dating.

User Avatar

Dating is not regulated by law. If your parents allow you to date, then, if you are not having sex, there is no law broken.

User Avatar

As long as he does not have sex with her, no. --- at least in MOST jurisdictions

User Avatar

It is possible that they could get in trouble. If the teenager is under the age of consent, and they knew she was having sex, there could be charges. If they encouraged the relationship, they would be encouraging someone to break the law.

User Avatar

It differs states to state, lots of states have an age of consent of 16, some have higher ages of consent.

User Avatar

I would think so... it's like someone saying it's ok to kill them, even though you have their permission and they say it's fine, you're going to go to jail lol. Best thing to do is ask a cop or lawyer.It depends which country you're in and what laws are in place governing the age of consent.If the age of consent where you are is 16, no he won't get into trouble. If the age of consent is higher, it would be illegal and parents cannot consent to breaking the law.
