Is it illegal for an underage mother to live with her boyfriend?

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.

How old do you have to be to legally move in with your boyfriend?

This question's answer varies from state to state. Each state has a minimum age of consent, when an individual is considered an adult in matters of sexual relations. However, it might also be wise to research the topic of emancipation, which is when a minor declares him or herself legally separated from his or her parents. Again, that age will vary from state to state as well. Any clerk of the court or someone in the state attorney's office can probably offer state-specific information.
