If she is pregnant, then you will know it soon enough. If the boy does not believe that he is the father then he can demand a paternity test if the mother alleges his paternity and seeks for him to take legal responsibility for the support and welfare of the baby. The parents of the 15 year old are responsible for her support. That would include any medical care that she needs. Once the child comes along, the putative father can be sued for child support. Especially if the baby becomes dependent for social assistance or the mother uses social assistance for prenatal medical care and medical expenses of prenatal care, delivery or other social services.
My comments are not intended to establish an attorney-client relationship, are not confidential, and are not intended to constitute legal advice. Proper legal advice can only be given by an attorney who agrees to represent you, who reviews the facts of your specific case, who does not have a conflict of interest preventing the representation, and who is licensed to practice in the appropriate jurisdiction where the legal issue may be filed, and who is licensed as an attorney in the state where the law applies.
he information fro the SC attorney is accurate. The boy should do nothing, about anything, (and certainly should pay no money to anyone) until and unless paternity is established -- and in Nevada, even if a paternity action is filed, it will pretty automatically be stayed until the child is born. For information as to various items set out in your letter, see:
And Nevada has no law of automatic grandparental responsibility for support. You can either sit back and wait until the possibly-made-up child is born, or confer with counsel to evaluate your possibilities now. If you do see an attorney, you should probably seek consultation with an appropriate family law specialist. I would suggest starting your search with the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, the Nevada chapter of which can be viewed at http://www.aaml.org/go/fellows/fellows-by-state/?showResults=true&state=NV.
