My daughter's 14 and her best friend's 15, she's always told me about her best friend's behaviour. And how she's a lovely girl but always gets taken in by boys. Anyway, last month my daughter asked me to buy a pregnancy test for her best friend. So I did, and told my daughter to encourage her best friend to tell her parents if she was. Well turns out she is. And she told her parents and they kicked her out. And I think she's basically now living with us. But I have another baby on the way, and it really can't be a permanent situation, due to finances etc. I've called up her parents and they won't talk to me and I went round and they wouldn't answer the door to me. So I've written them a letter and they're not answering it. If they could contribute some money I wouldn't mind at all, she's a lovely girl who's made some mistakes but I really need to get this sorted. Suggestions?Answer Question

What you do it go to court and file for emergency custody of her, and then you can go file for child support for her. Follow through with your court dates if you want permanent custody. Parents are still responsible for supporting their children even after they have babies of their own. I have a friend who's ex was ordered to pay child support for their 16 year old who had a baby last spring. He quit paying it when he found out she was pregnant. The girl lives with her Grandma in another town, and he has to pay CS to her mom. Crazy huh?

God bless you, if,you are concern for her, it's time to call Children Services, for a few reasons, she is only 15,her parents can say she ran away,and you are harboring her,they can also deny to give you money ,because they didn't ask you to take their daughter in. Calling CS will help her,she will get help with her doctor visits,she will also get finance help for her and her baby.This money may come to you,but they will strictly enforced that all money be spend on her and her baby,not your household. I hoped you saved a copy of the letter you wrote her parents. Like, alot of parents,they are in shock at first,but,soon as they see their grandbaby,their heart will change. GOD BLESS YOU, so many parents would have made their child stay away from this girl.
