My girlfriend and I haven't be able to see each other for a month now. Her parents won't let her because they no longer like me, because they think I treat her bad. We still love each other dearly and we have been asking to be able to date but they just won't let us. Her parents are separated but the agree on things. My girlfriend is 16 and we are expecting and I am 18. Her father provides little to nothing for her (food, clothes, drinks) and her mom provides suffeciently. My family is willing to take her in once she has the baby. I work roughly 20 to 30hrs a week at $9 an hour. And she works roughly 15 to 20hrs a week at $7.25 an hour. Is it possible for her to get emancipated from her parents and live with me to support the child, even though her parents don't want us together?
Given the circumstances, it is not possible for your girlfriend to become emancipated without the permission of one of her parents. To be emancipated, your girl friend would have to have one of her parents file a lawsuit to have her declared emancipated.
