Once you are 18, you can make your own decisions. But if you move out, you and the baby could lose your health insurance. After it is born, the father would have to establish paternity and file with the court for parental rights. The court would consider all the facts in determining what is in...Read more »

Ohio does not allow for minors in your situation to live by themselves. Your parents have responsibility for you, and as a minor, you must follow their decisions. If there are problems at home, talk to a family member, teacher, school counselor, or other trusted adult who can give you advice.
This is something a criminal defense attorney would know. You could repost the question in the Criminal Law section. Car accident attorneys (the category where you have it posted) usually only deal with the civil aspects of collisions, such as personal injury and property damage claims. They aren't...Read more »
Are there grounds for filing a case against the 21 year old. The 21 year old also exposed her to the Pagen religion and we believe alcohol. She met this individual at work, are their any consequences to the employer?
(1) It is not illegal for a 21 year old and a 16 year old to make out. (2) It is not illegal to introduce people to different religions. (3) It is illegal to provide alcohol to a person under the age of 21. (4) The employer has nothing to do with it. So, if there's evidence he is supply drugs or...Read more »
All my parents do I swear argue with me about anything and everything and I'm getting tired of it. I don't live with my biological father and to be completely honest I don't know who has legal custody. I think it's my mom but it's never really been sorted out I don't think. Anyway, is there any way... Read more »
No, you cannot move in with your boyfriend without bad consequences. That is a terrible idea. You must follow your parents' decisions -- like it or not. It is typical for teens to not like their parents' rules. That's normal. If you leave, you can be sent to juvenile detention, and he could...Read more »

Your aunt has legal custody, so she is legally obligated to provide proper care for you. She can't just pass that off to your grandmother. Your aunt can get in trouble for not providing for you. And if you go live somewhere else, both you and the person you move in with can get in trouble. Talk...Read more »

Ohio law says you are the victim of criminal sexual abuse, whether you agree with that or not. A crime has been committed. You were under the age of consent. The prosecutor is not likely to drop it even if you do get married. The father's abuse can be proven by DNA testing. And it is a bad...Read more »
I'm able to care for myself. I'm able to graduate by December and I have a job and I'll have a car by then. But my mom wouldn't give consent. How can I get emacupated without her concent if I can care for myself and I'll have somewhere to stay
Yes, the parents can take action, and the child could go to juvenile detention. Children cannot come and go as they please. If there are problems at home, the child should talk to a family member, teacher, school counselor, or other trusted adult.
I’m 17 my boyfriend is also 17, we turn 18 pretty soon. His probation officer told him were not to have any contact but never filed a no contact order or anything of the sort. Would I be able to see him after we turn 18?
You can drop out, but if you don't complete your education, then you will be unable to earn a decent living and even with government assistance, will likely live in poverty with your son. Talk to a family member, school counselor, teacher, or other trusted adult about your situation.
No, but they can kick you out by evicting you. So you should have some alternative place to live if they do. They could also terminate your health insurance, car insurance, and any other support they provide. Once a person is 18, they are considered an adult, can make their own decisions, and...Read more »
It’s not illegal to stay the night at anyone’s house. Five year olds have sleep overs. Since I know you know this, I also know there is more to this situation. Bottom line: before you turn 18, your mom has the right to make common sense rules like not sleeping with men. After you turn 18, she...Read more »
