Ok I am taking a pregnancy test tonight. I already have a daughter (10 months old.) My husband and I live in his parents house because we do not have enough income to rent. His parents have told us that if I am pregnant again they will be kicking us out. Call me irrisponsible, whatever, things happen. I am on BC, but that doesnt always work. So any ways, if I am pregnant and we do get kicked out, does anyone know how I can go about getting us a place to live? We are in New Jersey.Answer Question

Get a better paying job and save up money.

Don't tell them you are preggers until you have the money to move out.

Well you won't start to show right away, so don't say anything immediately. What is your money going to while you're living with them? Are you saving while you're there?

I say stop making excuses and start making a budget. If you REALLY want to move out, sit down with the ENTIRE family and inform them that while you don't mind helping out with bills (being since you DO live in their house), you are going to start setting aside a certain percentage of EVERY pay check REGARDLESS of if their other son needs food or if their front porch light went out. They shouldn't argue with that...I mean, it proves that you ARE making an effort to take on some responsibility for making a life of your own. If they DON'T like those terms, just tell them that this is what you are going to do..with or without their approval. You may live in their house but you have a family to support too...and you CAN'T do that while you are supporting his parents and his brother as well.

Go to your local WIC office and apply for WIC. Apply for food stamps. Apply for housing assistance and utility assistance. Apply for section 8 housing.

Maybe YOU should get a job, too. Get daycare assistance or ask his 'rents to watch the kiddo.
