Do we have to get married? Can we even get married if he isnt the father of my baby if im 15? He really loves my child and wants to adopt him.
See my prior response. You need to enlist the assistance of the adults in your life. Right now, your 19 year old boyfriend is not acting in your or the baby's best interest.
This answer is for general informational purposes only and should not be relied upon for your particular case nor is it intended as legal advice. I have not reviewed your case nor have I met with you and the answer to this question does not in any manner whatsoever establish an attorney/client relationship.
The father cannot relinquish his rights without an adoption. The adoption cannot happen unless you are married. Boyfriends cannot adopt. I don't think you can marry at 15.
Another duplicate post. Your boyfriend cannot adopt your son, you would have to be married. You should really schedule an appointment with a family law attorney near you to get all your questions answered. Good luck.
