If a parent cannot control a teenager can they give up custody of the teenager to the state?
So long as they are under the age of 18, then yes you can. But why would anyone want to put their own child into care! It may be a long hard road but there are plenty of organisations out there to help. So long as they are under the age of 18, yes you can. But there are plenty of organisations out there that could help. It can be a long hard slog but I would rather get all the help I could than to put a child of mine into care.

Answer . What I'm finding in Texas State Law is that you can't legally just throw a teenager out of your house without first pursuing legal action. Legal action includes reporting your child, especially in cases where the teen threatens physical harm to a family member. It's a multi-step process …but if you keep your wits about you and stay calm you can make this happen legally. Eventually what happens is that your child would enter the juvenile detention system in worst-case scenarios. The other options include letting your child live with a friend or other family member, marriage, or military service. Personally, I'm pursuing the latter of those options. I don't care for my son to be raised outside of a structured environment other than my home or the military. I know the rest of my family does not want him living at their homes because he can be very disrespectful and now with his physical size there is no "making him do something" under physical duress. He will live by my rules in my home or he will live in the military under their rules if he wants to leave sooner. If he runs away, which I really hope he doesn't as he really doesn't understand how hard life can be, he is in for a big awakening, and not one that a parent wants for their child. Additional Information: The best way for a parent to legally handle their unruly teen is to pay a school that has a reputation for supervising them properly. This could be a military academy or a private school that specializes in unruly teens. There are programs that are covered under some insurance plans. (MORE)
Answer . \nYes, although if the other parent contest the decision they can petition the court for counseling to try to resolve the matter. Obviously it would be beneficial for all parties to resolve the problem without the intervention of a judge or court appointed social worker.
The guidelines are basically the same in every state but obviously there are a few minor differences. Joint custody consists of Primary Custody & Secondary Custody. The parent with primary custody is who the child lives with & the other parent has secondary custody. Depending on the age of the child… & the state in which they reside, the court may let them determine where they choose to live. Or if both parents agree on the child's decision then the child can live with either parent. (MORE)
In Wisconsin can you legally give up parental rights to teenage daughters 15 and 13 that are deliquent and will not conform with histories of violence toward others in the family suicide attempts?
Answer . Yes you can. Call Child Welfare and express your problem. If they don't give you a direct answer or try to help say the word, "media" and that will get them hopping. Also, you can have your children arrested for being verbally or physically abusive, damaging your property or even atte…mpting suicide. \n. \nI do feel so badly for you because I know this was not an easy decision for you to make, but sometimes, certain people raise their children just fine, but once the children start going to school there are times when parents just lose control. You are smart to see that you can't do anymore for them and that you would be the last person they will listen too and that need professional help. Now is the time to get them the help because once they are no longer a minor you have lost total control of their safety and future well-being. Many kids going through these rough times and causing heartaches in families often make a 90 degree turn around. Hope your girls are one of the numbers.\n. \nGood luck\nMarcy (MORE)
Can the parents of a teenage pregnant daughter make the mother give up her baby or make her abort or do the young mothers have their own voice for their babies?
Answer . They cannot make you do anything. You have all the say and you can choose to keep or give the baby up for adoption. Since you are still very young, you should consider giving the baby away to a family who will love it and support it. Abortion shouldn't even be a thought, it would be irre…sponsible and there are many physical and mental problems that will come later because of it.\n. \nParents are trying to do what is best for the teenager, but the teenager has rights and can choose. Pick your councel wisely. It isn't easy to give a child away, but it is rewarding to the couple you choose. Plus, you can make it an open adoption so you will have some contact over the years.. Answer . \nNo one can make a mother give up her baby even if the mother is not an adult. And you shouldn't let anyone tell you not to place a baby for adoption or not to have an abortion. Those kind of people are not taking the responsibility for you or your situation so it is none of their business. (MORE)
Answer . \nIf legal custody has been established by court order, the grandparent(s) should file a Petition For Relinquishment in the Juvenile Court of the county or city of residence. Some states require the custodial person(s) to attend counseling in an attempt to resolve the family problems be…fore a petition can is filed. If the custody was given arbitrarily by the parent(s) without use of legal procedures the parent(s) are still financially and legally responsible for the minor and should be notified that the child is to returned to their custody. If this is not possible, the grandparent(s) may ask the juvenile court to make the minor child a ward of the state if no other relative is willing to accept the responsibility. (MORE)
Yes. The child is your baby. As long as your a fit mother the child cannot be taken away from you. If you are a minor, your parents still have custody of you, but you have custody of your child.
Custody Rage . A lot actually. You may not notice it but a lot of the time parents are arguing constantly all around the world about who gets the kid/kids. Now there are more "civilized" parents out there that can keep there anger down or just talk it over. A lot of the time a parent walks out of… the kids life/ family's life because of a spous's argument or because they are just being jerks. But just remember that this is not your fault that they are leaving nor that they are fighting.\nLexi Cameron (MORE)
In the state of Ohio if a non-custodial parent gives up all parental rights to his children does he still have to pay child support?
Actually I questioned once how someone would give up their parentalrights in the state of Ohio and I was informed that in the State ofOhio you cannot give up your parental rights unless someone iswilling to take over those rights which means there is anotherfather or mother that is willing to adopt …the child BECAUSE someonehas to be financially responsible for your child. Even if thecustodial parent is not on assistance at the time there is alwaysthe chance that the child will end up on assistance so there is noway to give up those rights unless someone else is agreeing toassume those rights.

Does the court ever change a ruling from joint custody to full custody for the custodial parent if the non-custodial parent gives up his visitation?
Answer . \nBecause it's almost always in a child's best interest to have a relationship with both parents, courts are generally reluctant to take away visitation rights. \n. \nIn some states, custody orders may give "primary" physical custody to one parent and "partial" physical custody to ano…ther parent. Very rarely does one parent get "full" custody of the child without at least visitation to the other parent.\n. \nIf you are the parent who does most of the caregiving and the other parent is not attending visits as scheduled, document the missed visits, especially any times the visits are scheduled and then cancelled or the parent just fails to arrive for visits. This information can help in court. (MORE)
Answer . Generally, both parents. Child support is based on actual time spent with the child and actual money earned by each of the parents. You need to go the Child Support Services in your city/county to file for child support. There will be a short hearing - unless both parties agree - and …a judge will determine who pays and how much.

In Colorado what can a custodial parent do when a teenage child wants to live with non custodial parent?
Answer . First, check out the logic of the child's "want." Does it make sense to you and your ex for this to happen? Could the other parent be more appropriate for day-to-day raising of a teenager? For example, common wisdom is that if the child is a teenage boy, it might be for the best for him t…o go to Dad. However, if the child wants to move because of disagreement with household rules, both parents may want to come to an agreement that, come what may, the move will be permanent. Allowing a child to use the non-custodial parent as an escape to problems regarding rules, schooling and so on, may result in "flip-flopping" households whenever an issue comes up. And, these issues will come up regardless of where the child lives, because that is the territory with teenagers. Of course, if there were issues with the non-custodial parent to begin with, then those will need to be added to the equation. In my personal life, I had to leave teenagers in Texas when I moved to Arizona. It was their choice, but they knew there was room in Arizona. The household I left them to was not the best; however there was just 4 years left until college and it was, in many ways, a short term decision. I missed them, but they are now in their twenties, and are doing well. (MORE)
Answer . If he's not driving the parents car then he should not need to be insured for it. He should however be insured for whatever car he "Is" driving. All drivers are required to carry financial responsibility, regardless of who's car they are driving. This can be accomplished by being a sche…duled driver on the car owner's policy, or in some cases by a non owners policy.. Also bare in mind that parents and legal gaurdians can be held financially liable for the acts of minors. (MORE)
Answer . It is a complicated question. Teenagers are not the wisest people around. They may need support in the life they will lead as parents. I say support, not help, because hekp is something that makes you feel guilty, that makes you feel responsible towards the people who help you. If a te…enager who has a baby feels, she should move out, she should absolutely do so. There are two reasons for that: it is far easier to live with a mistake you made by your own decision, than living with knowing that you just allowed it to happen. Also, anyone who is a parent must grow up quickly, and start making decisions and getting the full consequences of these decisions. Otherwise someone else is the parent to this baby. (MORE)
Can a custodial parent get more child support when their teenage children choose not to visit their non-custodial parent?
No, visitation and child support are 2 separate entities. The onlyway this would affect your support amount is if you are set up with50-50 custody and the child stops going to the other parents houseand you take them to court to get primary custody.
To give up your children to the state means giving up your parental rights, not just custody and the state will not allow that if it's just because the children are not obeying. Children who comes from good homes do not benefit from ending up in fostercare. It's not a miracle solution. You contact t…he socialworkers and they make a visit and see what is going on and if the court find it justifiable they will let you give up custody to them. You will most likely still pay child support and not get parental rights back. (MORE)
The age of majority in Louisiana is 18 years old. That is when you can move out legally. You can move out at any time with parental consent. However, you cannot sign a contract or own property. You must be a certain age to request emancipation. The age will depend on your state's laws.

Just as a toy plane is made to be set free outside so is a teenager made in such a way as though the more you control him/her the more they rebel. They have free will, they long to be free of any authority. The key is not how to control a teenager, but more likely how to guide him/her. They need gui…dance, and they need to receive it from a parent or a person of character that they find very influential. To gain the respect to guide a teenager, first you need to give it. (MORE)
No he will have to wait till he is 21 years old and a full adult.

Can a grandmother seek custody of a teenager when they no longer want to live with their parents and abuse is not a factor?
If the parents agree to give up parental rights, and the grandmother adopts the kid, then yes.
This is a good question. Depends on the country you are in. What can you do is: a) to find out the reason to what happened, just ask, and keep your eyes and your EARS open and don't onject to what you hear. Be patient. b) Educate, teach both your kind AND your self! Teenagers suffer a huge hormona…l shift which can cause them to go out of control - this is normal and will last only a couple of years. Be patient and try to understand and establish new trust and information link with the kid. When teenagers are maturing they discover things they don't tell you about. If you want access to such information, you need to gain new trust; but keep your authority, you're the adult. c) Mild physical punishment may be appropriate in some occasions. But NEVER do that in anger and only because of a specific reason, not because someone made you mad. (It helps the dreamer to snap out of his daydreaming of invincibility) (MORE)
In the state of Kentucky if a non-custodial parent decides to give up all parental rights to his child does he still have to pay child support?
Giving up parental rights does not, in itself, terminate one's child support obligation. However, adoption usually terminates the biological parent's obligation.

All of them. And most of them allow 18 year olds to get married without permission.
At 18 a child is an adult and can live where they want. You can run into issues with school jurisdictions if the child is still in school. Be sure you check the rules with the office at your school before you make a move..
You have to be emancipated. You have to show the court that you can support yourself. Get a job, place to stay, food, clothing, everything on your own. Not on welfare or staying with someone. Hard to do at 18, even harder at 16 or younger.
i would say it would be easier to be the parent of a teenager, because some parents would just leave their kids to do what they want, and have brought them up to be responsible enough to know what is right and what is wrong. teenager because if ur a parent it would be sad 2 leave your kid,:(
They can try. Without your cooperation it may not get far. Added: FIrst of all, INDIVIDUALS can NOT PRESS CHARGES ! They can only file complaints with law enforcement . Then the prosecutor's office PRESSES charges. It may also depend greatly on just what type of "Assault" the question is refe…rring to. (SIMPLE Assault - ASSAULT and Battery - SEXUAL Assault???)

You are a teenager with separated parents and joint custody you would like to live permanently with just one of your parent... Do you have the choice and how would this be gone about?
It would require a custody order change, which is not in your best interest. Contact with both your parents is more important than your friends. However, you could ask for joint custody of them. see links
Does a teenager have a say in a non custodial parent wanting visitation and the teenager says they dont want to see the non custodial parent?
They have an opinion, which could be a sign of parental alienation, or just being a teenager not wanting to be told what to do. see link
Well i guess its depends on the parent. Some control to much, others not enough.
The non-custodial parent would still have to pay child support and would have visitation rights as determined by the courts. The NCP would probably not be authorized to obtain/consent to medical care for the child, and might not be able to do other things such as picking the child up from school/day… care. (MORE)
16 year old teenager does not want to visit non-custodial parent during visitation what can custodial parent do?
Teach the child to respect the authority of the court. Teenagers do not want to be required to do anything with a parent. It's the job of the parent to remind them that family comes first.
Yes, just as they can be forced to go to school, the doctor, to bed, etc. One of the roles of being a good parent is teaching children what is in their best interest, even if they don't think so. See link below
It may or may not. Talk with their doctor and with them first. Many teenagers are on birth control.
Probably to show them that they think the teenager is mature enough to have an allowance.
A parent cannot simply abandon their child, however in most cases they can voluntarily relinquish parental rights provided that adequate alternative care (such as a relative willing to take the child or someone willing to adopt them) is available.
It is illegal to give anyone under 21 years of age alchol, even your parents, even in their own home!
really all you can do is keep a close eye on them, spend lots of family time with them, and make sure they dont drink and do drugs
If you by teen means 18, yes since they are then emancipated. But not younger than 18, that is illegal. You are obligated to care for your children until they are 18yo.
Should teenagers be exempt from going with a non custodial parent if it interferes with school activities?
I think this is something the parents need to discuss when it comes up. As the child gets older it becomes more and more important to do what the other kids do and if it's a overnight thing with the team the child would benefit from it. If it's a sport or something they would need to practise with t…he others. So it depends on what it is. The court order has to be followed but by now the parents would need to listen to what their teen wants as well and make a mutual decision. At this age it would only be fair. (MORE)
