Norfolk, NE asked in Child Custody and Juvenile Law for Nebraska

Q: What will happen when I tell my probation I'm five months pregnant?

I got put on probation 6 months ago as a juvenile, and I just turned 16. One of the terms of probation was that I couldn't be around my boyfriend. I found out a couple months ago that I got pregnant a month into probation, and still haven't told my probation. I'm starting to show and I have to tell them soon. I was wondering my rights and what to expect to happen. It's also court ordered on my probation not to be around him. My probation doesn't know we have seen each other at all the past six months. Would we be able to see each other since I'm pregnant? I'm just wondering overall everything that will happen.

A: Admitting you violated the terms of your probation could result in a violation of your probation. It is possible that the terms of your probation would be amended if you are pregnant or if a child is born and the court granted both parents parenting time with their child.
