If he can't legally take custody than the baby mama should have never had the option to retain custody.

Yes I know. But she at least had the option.

Wait, I'm not good at math but he's 15 now, the baby was born in 2010 when he was probably 13, so he got the girl knocked up when he was 12?

Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice.

I was wondering that as well. Good thing the baby's mother was under 18 or he would be considered a 'victim'.
 
2012-06-16 01:23:15 AM
It sounds like the real problem is that someone else should have had custody of him.

Probably a good thing.
You know how hard it is to get a newspaper route to pay for child support, nowadays?

/Worked with a 28 year old waitress whose autistic 13 year old son knocked up a 17 year old
 
2012-06-16 02:05:44 AM
So I guess fifteen year olds shouldn't be required to pay child support as well. Yes, I realize in this case the baby was put up for adoption, but does this mean that if a fifteen year old can't have custody of his child because he is too young, does that mean a fifteen year old is too young to be financially responsible as well?
And would the same rule also apply to a fifteen year old that was the mother? The double standard when it comes to kids and fathers is an embarrassment in this country.
 
2012-06-16 02:12:28 AM
I don't get the 'sad' tag. The baby has a shot at a normal life, and the two teens have a chance to learn and start over. Seems like a reasonable ending.

Sheesh, you'd think they'd at least let his parents or guardians or w/e have a crack at custody. I imagine not much feels worse than having your kin taken away when you don't want to lose them, whatever the age.

I understand to a degree but in many cases the adoptive parents are way better equipped to take care of a baby. They plan for it and usually have an income to handle them.

Nice try. Would not have made any difference because Mommy Dearest deliberately got pregnant to get out of the house away from HER mother. Starting a family was an unhappy but necessary side-effect of leaving home. She spread her legs for the first jerk that came along hoping he'd support her. He didn't.

For years, she boasted, "I never wanted to have kids."

Last I heard, both of them are still alive but don't know they have an extraordinary grandson. Fark 'em.

Britney Spear's Speculum: psssh, mine was 37 months


The egg that was fertilzed to implant to create me was taken from my mother while she was still en utero, and planted in a surrogate mother. I was born 5 months later. Meanwhile, my mother was aborted due to government restrictions (we're Chinese). So my mom was never born.

My mother was 15 when I was born, I was put up for adoption. Am very grateful for the life I was given from that adoption, is trippy though. In grade school we did a thing where we traced our family tree, I used my adoptive parents tree, but was very aware that it had nothing to do with my biological tree. Parents let me know I was adopted from the moment I could understand the whole deal, which I think was a good choice.

Had my daughter at 28, glad I wasn't 15

In some states, a girl is considered to be an adult once she is pregnant, therefore she can make decisions about disposition of the child.

Because of an accident with a contraceptive and a time machine, I am my own mother and gave birth to myself at 15 months of age.

//and after all that, do I call myself on Mother's Day? No I do not, ungrateful daughter that I am.

No.

Birth control is a sin.

Good. He's too young. But:

"guardian or best friend"

Is "best friend" really a legal status?

NobleHam: Good. He's too young. But:

Yes, legally it means 'Older drug dealing friend', so you know, they can charge him for a list of shiat for court costs and 'rehab' fees.

regarding child support for a baby by an underage male...you sue for shild support and the court takes it out of the male's father's paycheck. It really makes the "grandfather" all sorts of happy each payday when his paycheck is a couple of hundred dollars light!

Did nobody bother to read the article? He wasn't told he couldn't have custody; he was told he couldn't bring a lawsuit to gain custody. If an adult files the suit on his behalf the custody case can go ahead.

RibbyK: My mother was 15 when I was born. I wish she'd have put me up for adoption.


Mine was 19 and, much to my surprise, had been married to my dad for about a year when I was born. Given how much her parents disliked my dad and their young ages, I naturally assumed it was a shotgun thing.

I just recently (like in the last 6 months) found out that my grandma was 17 when my dad was born. I had no idea what grandma's age is because it's really not something that's relevant to a kid and it doesn't really come up much until age becomes one of those "I made it another year!" things. We were talking on the phone and she said, "I can't believe I'm turning XX this year!" and my brain automatically did the math. I just barely managed not to say, "But dad's..."
 
2012-06-16 03:03:40 AM
This is probably one of those 'for the good of the kid' things.

I'd guess this kind of law considers adoptive parents, having been qualified for adoption, as being better for the kid than someone so young. If you bring his parents into consideration, then you are comparing what the grandparents on the father's side want to do vs what the mother of the child wants to do with the kid. I don't see how grandparents should have more say than the mother.

My s/o's step mom's (hispanic family, has lots of kids at young ages and such) grandmother was alive when, get this, the step mom's her great grand daughter was born. That's a great great great grandchild.

But drunk? Really? That's a surprise.
