If you're 15 and pregnant and the father of the baby is 19 can he go to jail if you have the baby even if your parents are fine with it in South Australia?
You are very fortunate your parents are "just fine with it" and I doubt that one very much, but they feel there is no other choice, but to accept it all. You are a baby having a baby! What's done is done. Unless your parents form a complaint against him and they accept him as the father of your baby (expecting him to get out and work and help support the child you are having together) then no, he won't go to jail. The only way he could go to jail is if your parents charged him with "Statutory Rape" or he didn't keep his promises and stood by you and helped support that baby. Good luck Marcy Answer No, a minor who is at least 15-years of age, and the partner is no more than 20, can apply the "five year rule" as a viable defense. The fact that the parents are agreeable strengthens the argument makes it impossible for any charges being brought, as long as the 15-years-old swears sexual intercourse was of their own "free will and choice". Answer As long as you parents dont press charges.

What should you do if you're 19 and pregnant and both you and the father want the baby but you have no jobs yet and your family thinks you are too young and can't do it?
At age 19, you are nearly an adult and can certainly make your own choices. The odds of you and the father continuing with a lifelong committed relationship aren't very good a…t that age, but of course those are the 'odds' - each relationship is unique. Keeping the baby is your decision - not your family's. But if you keep the baby against your family's discretion, you should reasonably not expect much assistance from your family as you confront the challenges ahead. As an alternative, their are plenty of childless couples who would welcome a new baby into their arms if you put the baby up for adoption.
Answer . Only if you press charges. Or you say you didnt want to have sex and he forced you. Which would be very wrong. Also, some states have different laws. In some place…s it's considered rape just because of your age and his, no matter what you say. But usually charges have to be pressed for that to happen.
If you're a 17-year-old girl from New Jersey who got pregnant by a 21-year-old can you have the baby or will your boyfriend go to jail if your parents don't know?
You can still have the baby no matter what. The only way the 21 year old will go to jail is if they are charged with statutory rape. In most cases the parents are the ones tha…t bring on the charges. The best thing to do is tell your parents as soon as you can so you don't have to hide a pregnancy from them and you will hopefully have there support during it.
Answer . \nYes you can. Answer . \nIf he is on the birth certificate or has voluntarily accepted paternity, state laws usually allow such action. In cases where the for…mer does not apply a paternity test will be required before the court allow the child to legally take the name of the biological father.
If you are 16 and your girlfriend is 15 and she is pregnant do you have the right to keep the baby even if it is against your parents' wishes?
Answer . \nYes, an unmarried pregnant minor has all the legal rights to their child as does an adult. No one including parent(s) can force her to place the child for adopti…on, have an abortion or relinquish her parental rights. If her parents cannot or will not assist her, she can contact state social services or Department of Family Services (DFS) for assistance in obtaining medical care and other such necessities. In some instances the court will emancipate the minor female so she can receive state and/or federal benefits for herself and her child. The father of the child would need to establish paternity before he can pursue his parental rights. The establishment/acceptance of paternity may also mean he can be held financially accountable for support of the child depending upon state laws and his personal circumstances.

I think you should jus tell your'e parents & if you really love him nothing & nobody should put you guys apart(: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/User:Prof_Irwin_Corey 19:49, 5 Se…p 2009 (UTC)~~ A 19-year old man who gets a 15-year old girl pregnant is bad news. Forget the statutory rape for which he is liable, the 15-year old is not ready to be a mother. Talk to your doctor, your parents or someone whom you trust about this. This is NOT a good situation, and you are far too young to even THINK about being a mother. Yes...If your boyfriend is 19 years old and got you pregnant he doesn't seem responsible or caring. You are PREGNANT. You have much more important things to worry about than breaking the news when your dad hates the loser, sounds like he has good reason. And I'm pretty sure that if he even did like the guy then that would soon change -------------- well i had my baby girl when i was young (I'm putting young because i don't want everyone who looks at this page to know, lol), and now I'm 18. if your partner and you are solid then that's great - it's only when your relationship is a bit rocky, trouble happens. having a baby at a young age cause's a lot of stress for everyone involved but i would change it for the world. think of the baby and not yourself....what's better for it? if you and your boyfriend are serious, sit down and talk - there are always other possibility's such as a relative looking after the child. As for your father....he only wants what's best for you. he might not like him but your boyfriend is your choice, although i would think about WHY your dad doesnt like him - there could be a good reason.
If you are about to be 17-years-old and are pregnant by a 19-year-old can your parents make you give up the baby or keep you away from the father so you and your baby will never see him again?

If you are pregnant and 15 and your baby's father is 17 but will turn 18 after the baby is born can he go to jail on Oklahoma?
Answer . \nIt depends. If your child was conceived when the baby's father is 17 then no. But turning 18 can be a problem. Now he can be evicted of child molesting because …you are a minor. BUT, he wasn't an adult when this baby was conceived. You should talk to a counselor about this.
In the state of Kentucky if you got pregnant when you are 15 years old but have the baby when you are 16 and the baby father is 24 years old could he go to jail?
Answer . Yes! He is still older than you, and as far as I know in Kentucky much like the rest of the country the age of consent is sixteen. He slept with a fifteen year old… girl. He was older than eighteen at that point so it stops being corruption of a minor, and becomes Statutory rape. He is going away for a very long time.
YES maybe NO . this is the reason yes..... I think she should if he is over age!!! . this is the reason no......but if he is not then he should still be...........put in… prison for at least one. Yes maybe no . i think he should be if he is over age. i dont because if he is the same age he really didnt do anything wrong!. but make her pregnet.
yes because in the law that is considered rape. it is also a tiny bit wrong in a way but if you wait until your 16 which isn't long, you wont get him arrested because then… it is legal... thankyou.
If you and you're boyfriend are both 17 and you're pregnant can your parents stop the father of the baby from seeing his child?
The answer to this question is NO. I personally was in this situation. The answer is NO. Point blank. You can choose not to let him see the baby, but only for so long. It will… not look good in court. All he has to do is establish his paternity, which is what I did. Then court follows and visitation rights are established. You can choose to throw as many allegations as possible at him, but if he is persistant he will prevail. However if the father of the baby is deemed to be a harmful presence to the child, the judge will work this in your favor. It could work both ways. So be sure you know what you want when you take this to court. I was a 17 year old exactly the same as in your question. I prevailed.

Will an overage man go to jail for having a baby with a underage teen even if the parents dont file charges?
It is possible, it depends on the laws of the region...
Your parents do have some legal right to keep the father away from the baby because of your age but they must have some kind of proff proving that this is in the best intrest …of the child.
Yes, there's no "get out of jail free" card for being a father. It would be unusual for a 15-year-old to be sent to jail for longer than a few hours/days (temporary custody… at a police station), but it's not impossible. A 15-year-old would be more likely to be sent to Juvenile Hall. If you're asking "is it illegal for a 15 year old to have sex with a 12 year old", then it depends on where you live. In some places it is and in other places it isn't.
