I am 15 years old and my boyfriend is 17. I’m pregnant. He’s going to be 18 in 3 months. Can he go to jail? xauto
129: I am a 17 year-old male with some life-learned knowledge on this topic and I say, yes! Of course there is a way out. From what you’ve said, you’re living in a bad home environment. I’m not saying a mom being a stripper is a bad thing. You do what you need to for money sometimes. But the step-dad being a dealer, of anything, causes the bad environment. Especially if he’s bringing people to your home where you live.
I have experience with things like this, seeing as I’ve https://hookupdate.net/local-hookup/durham/ associated with dealers before, and I’m not saying that the dealer is the dangerous thing here (although it could be too), but the people he brings home sometimes could possibly pose harm to him, you, your mom or anyone in the house at the time. And if things go bad, it could get really ugly, really fast.
Now, for the way out of this situation if you’re underage, there are a few options. One, you can go live with your real dad, which would be allowed by law seeing as you’re over 12 (the age in which you have to be to be able to choose the biological parent in which you live if they’re divorced with no custody issues).
If your parents refuse to let you, you can contact your dad, and tell him the situation you’re in and he can take it to court if he needs to, and inform them that you living with your mom and step-dad is not safe for you and he would get custody.
Also, you can also convince a family member or close friend (if you have one over 18 and can support you financially) to do the same as what the father would, except in this case, they’d have to try to convince your mom (your step-dad has no say in anything about you, seeing as he never adopted you, I’m assuming) to let you or they can also take it to court, but you’d have to have proof of why living at your house is not safe for you and they can give custody of you from your mother to someone else (usually easier with a family member).
If none of this works, go live with a good friend of yours whose parents know your story. They should know your story in the case that your mom or step-dad call the police saying you’ve ran away or that they’ve “kidnapped” you, so that they can tell the police what’s going on and not get in trouble for housing you.
As a last case scenario, you can go to child support services and tell them what’s been going on and they’ll put you in the foster care system, but I personally wouldn’t recommend it. I mean, it might be better than your home you live in, but it’s not the best choice.
I really do hope the best for you! Please let me know how it goes if you go through with it! anon2139
