So I'm 16, pregnant with my boyfriends child and my parents forbid him to come around. I will be 17 when the baby is born. So when I turn 17 could i get emancipated without parental consent? I would have a place to go that can support another teenager and baby coming in and my boyfriend who is also the baby's father would be around to help as well as his father. Would this be possible in Wisconsin?My boyfriend is 18 by the way...
Under Wisconsin Statutes Section 48.415(6), you could argue that her parents' rights should be involuntarily terminated, because of failure to assume parental responsibility. This is tricky, but I could help.
It does drive me nuts when someone from another state presumes legal advise in Wisconsin. I consider Wisconsin to be the Loiusiana of the North.
In Rock County you will have better chance of becoming governor that you would of being emancipated against your parents will at 17. Your best bet is getting your parents to allow you to marry. If they do you get emancipation as a side bonus.
In some circumstances the court will grant the parents emancipation when the 17 year old is a problem child, but it is rare to be the other way around. If you became a problem child with a new baby, they would probably over react.
I would suggest you contact a local attorney and get their spin on this. But please don't take the word of someone out of state on this issue.
