Parents cannot "give" a child to someone. All parties must follow the required adoption or guardianship procedures according to the laws of the state and through the appropriate state court. Taking arbitrary action concerning the custody of a minor child can create serious legal complications and potential criminal charges and other penalties for all parties involved. In such cases all participants are required to retain legal counsel. In most cases the court will appoint a Guardian Ad Litem to represent the child's best interest.

It is not illegal to live with your boyfriend, but you would need your parents' permission and your boyfriend's parents. A minor can only choose where to live if they are legally emancipated. Also, if your parents do not want you and your baby to live with them, they are legally required to make other arrangements, because they are responsible for you until you are 18 regardless of their wishes. You could, however, become a ward of the state where you reside, or become legally emancipated.

You are 14 years old and pregnant will your parents have legal custody of your baby?

You will have legal custody of your child. In the eyes of the law, once you become a mother you are emancipated as far as any decisions you make on behalf of your child...i.e. medical insurance/treatment decisions, all the bills for the baby, social security, birth certificate information can only be handled by yourself....unless you choose to sign over your parental rights to your parents. Due to the fact that you are 14, your parents still have legal authority over YOU. They will still make all decisions on your behalf legally. Hope that helps.....hang in there, it does get better!


What are grandparents rights as far as getting custody of a minor child?

Their rights start where the parents' rights begin. If the parents are actively parenting, the child is thriving and nothing illegal is going on, then the grandparents are honor bound to support, not supplant, the parents. If the parents are out of the picture, the grandparents can certainly apply to become guardians of the child.
