No. A child is no one's property. An unmarried mother has sole custody until the father establishes his paternity in court. Once paternity is established the father can petition for custody and/or visitation and the court can prepare a child support order as necessary if the mother retains sole physical custody.

In the United States both parents have equal rights of custody of the child if they are legally married.

If a child is illegitimate, it means their parents are not legally married.

When a couple is not legally married they have no statutory rights in the other's estate. Their separate property would pass to the child. Any property held as joint tenants with the right of survivorship would pass to the survivor.

If the parents are married and the child is a minor the answer is yes. If the parents are divorced or never married, the parent(s) with legal custody can make that decision.

If you are not emancipated you need your parents' permission to move out or to get married.

Your child will get the name you give him if you are the mother. It the parents are not legally married then the mother has the right to choose the child's name. The father must establish his paternal rights in court after the child is born. Then he can petition for joint custody, visitations and a child support order can be established.Your child will get the name you give him if you are the mother.

If she is legally married, yes. If she is emancipated, yes. If she has her parents' permission, yes. If she doesn't have her parents' permission, no, but she can apply for emancipation.

If a child is legally emancipated by the court, then the parents are no longer responsible for the child. On the other hand, if the parents simply give the child permission to move out...then that's a different matter entirely.

parents are in every way responsible for their child and they should always be there if the child is in need of their parent.

No, once they are married they are emancipated.

Moving out of a parents house at the age of 16 legally, depends on where the person resides. In most states, a child cannot legally move out of a parents home because they are not of the states age of majority. A child can move out at 16 if they are legally emancipated by the courts.

If you are married to the mother, no. Then you share everything naturally. But if you have a child and you are separated or not married to the mother, and you do not have custody of the children, you have to pay child support

You used the word child. And legally they are a child and the parents decide where they are to live.

If the parents are unmarried and the father has not established his paternity legally- yes. If the parents are married the mother may need to seek a court order to have the child returned. You should consult with an attorney.
