IT ALL DEPENDS WHERE YOU ARE, I AM IN ENGLAND AND IF YOU GO TO YOUR LOCAL HOUSING ASSOCIATION THEY MIGHT BE ABLE TO FIND YOU A PLACE, WHAT ABOUT THE BABYS FATHER CANT YOU LIVE WITH HIM? IF NOT THEN GO TO YOUR LOCAL ADVICE CENTRE AND THEY WILL HOPEFULLY SORT YOU OUT!!! GOOD LUCK!! You could go to the local rescue mission. If you are the United states,and have applied for assistance from your case worker(if you have one, if not go to the Family Independence Agency and apply for assistance, and one will be provided) he/she might be able to help. Sorry to hear that you have been kicked out of your parents house. I take it since your 16 years old that you don't own a place. Maybe this is your parents way of waking you up and teaching you responsibility. How are you going to raise this child if you are asking for help in what to do after being kick out. I would really reconsider whether having a baby is what you want because its clear that you cannot take care of yourself. I would go back home and try and talk to your parents and realize what position you have put yourself in. I don't care how young you are, that's wrong for your parents to kick you out. This is a hard time for you, they are your parents! They need to be supportive!!! Sorry to hear that you have been kicked out of your parents house.

I'm sure this young woman wasn't expecting to be kicked out and it would take anyone with NOTHING help to get started. You don't know what she's capable of or who she is! Maybe with a leg up she'll be your boss in 6 years. What she'd be looking at is a struggle but there is nothing new under the sun and with some aid I'm sure she could make it. Not knowing what state you live in I cannot supply the number of a social service agency you should contact. You can look in your phone book for Department of Family Services or something similar to contact people who will assist you. Or you can contact the Planned Parenthood Federation, the counselors can schedule you an appointment at a clinic near you for medical care and a consultation with a social worker who can help you find a place a to live, apply for state assistance and so forth. And for the record, they DO NOT try to talk anyone into getting an abortion, placing a child for adoption etc. they help the young woman make informed decisions pertaining to her individual circumstances. 1-800-230-7526 or http://www.plannedparenthood.org Okay, I am going to give you the best of what I got here okay. Now just do me a favor, make sure if you keep that baby, you give it your everything and don't hold a grudge toward your baby just because you might have been irresponsible once or twice in your teen years okay?! You should go back to your parents and explain to them that you don't need this. You realize that you made a mistake and could have been more responsible. You should tell them that you want to keep this baby and you want to love your baby but when you are kicked out of your house and you feel that they don't love you anymore it is hard to keep a good attitude of that loving, nurturing and caring mother that you want to be. Tell them that you need their support and the world will provide enough punishment for you on it's own and you don't need any help of that from them. I would suggest that the father of the baby knows about this and encourage him to help you. Good luck sweetheart.

It depends who spent most money on the house and if married, the terms on the contract. However, technically, no!

A pregnant teen (or any teen) can be kicked out of a house. However, if they are not put in alternate housing (foster care, etc), if anything happens to that child the legal guardian is still legally responsible.
