What rights do I have with my 16yr old pregnant daughter in Colorado. The daddy of her baby was 18 at the time of conception.

Asked almost 5 years ago - Denver, CO

I want to know if she wants to live with him at 16 is it legal? What rights to I have with her education? Can I make her stay in school?

    Answered . You remain her parent and have the normal parental rights. She is not yet legally emancipated. You can certainly insist that she remain in school although that may be difficult to enforce if she refuses.
