I have a friend who is 19, single and pregnant, I am wondering what kind of financial help there is for her.... THANKS! Can she get child support from the father?

  • I don't know about child support. but you can get financial aid when your under 21 only when you have a baby or are married. but different rules apply in different states.

  • In my state anyway if you get financial help from the gov't they require you provide info about the father because they go after him for support.
