  • teen parents looking for a better life

    When i was 17 (now 1 and my girlfriend was 16 (now 17) we conceived what would be our son, now a month old. i was gone for 6 months of the pregnancy because of basic and advanced training for the national guard. Well i recently got back 2 weeks ago and found out that my girlfriend's grandparents (her legal guardians) have been treating her like s***. Telling her she should move out, and saying shes gonna end up like her mother (who was murdered by her husband), and that she stole her younger sister's birth control just to have sex with me which made zero sense seeing as how we havent done that in over 7 months and dont intend to for a long time. then she continued on calling her my little whore and thats all she will ever be, and that she should drop out of high school (even though she one of the smartest women i no. I wouldnt have believed it if i hadnt seen her do it in front of my own face earlier today and brought up how i wasnt there for six months and that im not a man and il always be dirt. I just wanted to no how do i go about taking her and my son away from that nut case (i do believe she has mental problems). what are the laws in louisiana regarding a 17 year old moving out? i just got a new job recently, the pay is stable so money isnt a problem and weve talked about getting married soon. What are our options? That house is no place for my son to be raised and the mother of my child, my girlfriend surely doesnt deserve to be treated like that.

    Thank you for reaching out to us during the difficult time. It sounds like you really care about the wellbeing of your girlfriend and son. Although we are not legal experts and cannot give legal advice regarding the runaway laws in Louisiana, in most places a youth is considered a minor until the age of 18.

    What do you think would happen if she did move out? If her grandparents decide to file a runaway report, her information would be entered into a national database stating that if found, she is to be returned to her legal guardian. Technically, running away is not illegal. However, anyone that should would be caught staying with could possibly be charged with ‘harboring a runaway’.

    We are sorry to hear her grandparents are verbally abusive to her. Nobody deserves to be called names or made to feel bad. Planned Parenthood at 1-800-668-2528 might have some resources for you both regarding care for your young son.
