Quoting Ashleigh Lynn:" I live in Washington state, and I am 15. My mother says I have no rights to my child and will take full guardianship when my baby is born. What rights do I have, and what can I do?"


it's really nothing your mom can do unless your unstable

:!:



I'm probably going to get shit on for this. But you're only 15... I presume your mom houses you, clothes you, pays for your food and everything else. Do you have a job? Can you support this kid on your own? If not maybe your mom having guardianship wouldn't be such a bad thing... at least until you are capable of caring for it on your own.

It really doesnt matter if your mother tries to get guardianship of the baby since she is still your legal guardian. Unless you dont live w/her. I was 16 when i had my oldest. I went to school, worked, and paid for all of my childs things. My parents provided a roof over our head.....if they had suggested guardianship i wouldnt have cared because i know it wouldve been revoked when i could provide a home for my child.

I am in school. I am not working, but. I do babysit, and clean, and do yard work for extra money.

She doesn't live with me, she lives 3 hours away, and she is threatening so send me to Michigan in two weeks. I pay for my own food, and cook for myself. My mom says I can't do anything right, and I have no choice, and no rights.

Well she doesn't have any rights over your child. Why would she send you to michigan? But you do have rights, and a choice.

Well then don't worry about her. There is nothing she can do to take your child away from you. It would probably be best to distance yourself from her and jut ignore her.

You do have choices and rights, however, if your mother is your legal guardian, she does still get to make some choices for you. If she isn't your guardian, there's nothing to worry about, she's just pissed off that her kid is pregnant and freaking out. If she wanted to send you to Michigan, she could probably do so, like I said, depending on who has custody of you, etc.

She is sending me to Michigan because she doesn't want to have to deal with me because she says my boyfriends is a bad influence on me, and I stress her out too much. But she says, no matter what she gets to decide what happens to my child and I get no rights.

That part is totally untrue. She CAN refuse to care for the child, or pay for it, but she still has to care for you and pay for you in most ways.



IS your boyfriend a bad influence?

He isn't a bad influence at all. He is a great guy. He is the same age as me, he gets good grades and he has a job. He loves kids and is good with them, he has never done drugs or anything. He goes to school and we have known each other for three years. He loves me and plans on being there for our bay and it is killing him that my mom is making me go across country to Michigan.

What's in Michigan, anyway? You could try to be emancipated.

I am living with my stepfather currently. And I know my boyfriend has rights but I don't know exactly what they are or how I can actually stop my Mom from making me go to Michigan.

My grandparents live in Michigan and I can't get emancipated. The court won't let me.
