  • Does I have any rights? California

    I am 16 years old and 9 months pregnant, my grandparents have custody of me. They are telling me I cannot keep my baby because my baby's father is 19 (he turned 19 in April of 2007). I was told that once I turn 17, I have rights to leave from my grandparents house and do what I feel is best for me and my baby. I need to know if this is true and what rights do I have.

    I have thought about running away, but I want to know if I do so can I be made to return back home?

    You cannot leave your home at the age of 17 without consent from your legal guardians.

    You have the right to decide what you want to do in regards to the child. You cannot be FORCED to give your child in adoption, but at the same time, they don't have to allow you to keep the baby in their home.

    The age of consent in CA is 18. The father of your baby could be facing some very serious criminal charges.
