an underage mother should have her parents help her if they are supportive of her position and ask a lawyer that deals in family matters. there should be no legal reason why she can't keep her child. fl. law does allow underage mothers to keep their kids as long as they have some means of support such as welfare housing wick foodstamps and the mother will have the ability to continue her education and take her baby with her. there are special schools that provide child care while the mommy is in classes. her main focus should be the welfare and future of her and her child. unless she has a good education, goals, good morals, loves her child and can prove to the state that her main concern is her child and be willing to go to parenting classes to help her with knowing how to deal with different problems and coping skills instead of abuse to raise her child again there should be no reason why she shouldn't be able to raise her own kid again it really helps to have loving supportive parents. but if she's alone and the father of the child refuses to have any part in the raising of their child, then she should make sure he's forced into help with the financial issues and child support, depending on the age of the father. if he's underage also he'll need to also take parenting classes along with mom and counseling would be a good idea also. marriage would be the worse thing they could do just for the sake of the kids then the relationship is doomed before it even gets off the ground. be blessed and may yours and your baby's future be filled with joy and the love of God * Minors who are pregnant and/or have a child/children have the same custodial rights as an adult. A minor cannot be forced to obtain an abortion, relinquish parental rights, place the child for adoption and so forth unless a court rules otherwise. Young mothers who are in need of assistance should contact their state's department of family and children's services. They can also receive assistance with legal, medical and other issues through Birthright, http://www.birthright.org or toll free 1-800-550-4900.

It depends on what kind of custody arrangements you have. If you have joint legal custody, you both have to decide together what is best for the children.
