What is the name of your state?What is the name of your state? Tennessee.
First of all thank you for allowing me to ask these questions!!!
My son is dating a young lady who is pregnant with someone else's child. She is pregnant by an adult who took advantage of her in our eyes anyway. He is sending child support because the mother is dangling a carrot over him with the Statutory Rape, which if were my child he would areadly be in jail. She is 16, will be 17 on Sept. 9th. She is 5 weeks away from delivering. She wants to emancipate herself from her drug addicted mother and step father. Her father who had custody of her died almost 2 years ago and the State sent her back to the mother who supposedly had gotten her life back in order.
Well she is living in the same situation again and today her mother threatned to hit her and she wants to be emancipated because she does not want her new baby in that environment. I really think she has learned a hard lesson.
She does not want the father involved because she knows that he is on Methamphetimes (sp) because he had some drugs given to him upfront and when it was time to pay up I guess his dealer he did not have the money, so the dealers followed him one night to her house and started shooting at it and caught her truck that her father had willed her on fire. They actually had to leave the town they lived in which was McMinville, TN because they were getting death threats.
But anyway what I would like to know is that we are willing to allow her to move here until she can get on her feet until after the baby is born and she can get a job etc. and schooling is also an issue. I am sure she will need to be home schooled due to needing to be with the baby and I don't know about how she would go about day care. She does recieve a Social Security check each month from her fathers death. And support from the father already.
My family is willing to take her in and allow her to get on her feet once the baby is born. We have a spare room for her and all and have already pretty much bought alot of the baby items she needs as well.
Her mother stated this morning to her to find a judge and to get herself emancipated and get the hell out of the house because she was sick of her and no longer wanted her there. Now this child cooks, cleans, does housework and watches her deadbeat sisters 3 children on a daily basis while they are doing thier partying.
All she wants to do is get out of it and raise her baby right. She know there has been a mistake and she is suffering daily for it. So anyway that we can help her we would be willing to do it.
Can we go to court with her and offer her a place to live and get her some home schooling started. I have a computer here for her to use etc. until she can get on her feet?
I would so much appreciate your help with this issue because I do not know the laws. But as a parent who has raised an upstanding young man who has stuck with her even though the child is not his. He does no drugs, alcohol, or smoking at all, does good in school. But we are just looking out for her best interest and we also know how much he loves her and he cannot stand to see her in this situation. So again thanks for your advise.
