No, you don't have to pay for an abortion; however, if a child is born you WILL have to pay to support the child.See question

Unfortunately, unless you become emancipated or a ward of the state, you must abide by your mother's rules. That said, your mother should not be "kicking you out" as by her doing so, she may create a situation that ends up with you being in foster care.See question
I have a custody hearing coming up. I have tired to come to a vistations agreement before the court date. Which the father has not agree to. He sends me hostile messages every day. And asking when can he see his son. He has not offer a vistation s...
No, the court isn't going to give him full custody because you don't agree to his proposal for visitation. As long as you have made some reasonable offer for visitation, then you've told him when "he can see his son" and it's on him. That said, if you both don't come to some agreement the court will eventually have to make a decision and neither of you may like what the court decides. I suggest you speak directly with an attorney to get specific advice about how to proceed with your case. Good luck!See question
