A counselor from school referred me to a local support group at a nearby highschool, you may want to try that. There's a lot more girls out there in your situation than you may think!
I don't know if there is a support group for parents with pregnant teenagers, but if not, there needs to be, because this is a epidemic, and these girls seems to be totally clueless as to what they're getting themselves into.
Hi, I don't know of a forum dedicated to pregnant teens. But I just started a forum this week for parents period. And speaking as a woman that got pregnant at 16 and then 18, I can tell you that it's not the end of the world for these teens. Having parents and/or friends and family around is the best thing for them right now. They need support and to be told that it won't be easy but that everyone will help them so that they can finish school and get careers.
There are no laws against dating; only against sexual contact. That said, the age of consent in Illinois is 17, UNLESS the elder party is in a position of "trust or authority" over the younger party (for example, a teacher, coach, probation officer, or therapist). If the elder party is in a position of trust and authority over the younger party, then the age of consent is 18.
Someone who has reached the age of consent can have sex with whoever they want (as long as the other person has also reached the age of consent).
So yes, it is legal for you to date and to have sex, unless you are the 17-year-old's teacher, coach, probation officer, therapist, etc., etc. In that case you would have to wait for them to turn 18 to have sex.
temporary injunction n. a court order prohibiting an action by a party to a lawsuit until there has been a trial or other court action. A temporary injunction differs from a "temporary restraining order" which is a short-term, stop-gap injunction issued pending a hearing, at which time a temporary injunction may be ordered to be in force until trial. The purpose of a temporary injunction is to maintain the status quo and prevent irreparable damage or change before the legal questions are determined. After the trial the court may issue a "permanent injunction" (making the temporary injunction a lasting rule) or "dissolve" (cancel) the temporary injunction. See also: injunction From www.Law.com for more info see www.steveshorr.com/law.htm Interim = temporary; injunction = an order to prevent someone from doing something
Surrender to the authorities in the jurisdiction where the warrant was issued. It would be advisable to obtain legal counsel before taking such action. A warrant will not just "go away",if the person is stopped by the police it will become known if an identification check is made, and the person will be taken into custody.
