"It's her right to kick her teenage daughter out" - I think I found the answer for ALL states
I saw this statement in the teen pregnancy post and I have heard and seen it many times before.
I don't understand how a parent can kick their child out if they are under 18... I don't see how that is legal and I sure as heck don't see how it makes you a 'good' parent.
Is it legal to kick a minor to the streets?
Edit: I wanted to add that in a google search, everything I find says that in America, until the age of 18... regardless of pregnancy the minor is still a minor which I think would mean the parents could get in trouble for kicking him/her out. I do know that if they kick the minor out they can turn around and report it as a run away and get the kid in trouble.
According to that chart, pregnancy does NOT automatically emmancipate a minor... so for those of you who claim you've done it, I believe you could have legally gotten in trouble for abandonment/neglect. This clearly isn't the actual law sheet... but either way... I really do think its illegal.
