Heres the story: Against my mothers will, I recently told my sons father that he is my "baby daddy" (i hate saying that) anyway my mom found out i told him and blew a fuse ! she wants me to leave the house without my son? saying that shes going to tell the cops to drug test me for marijuana? can she do this? Can she really kick me out and force me to leave my son? I smoked some pot like two weeks ago can they really take my son away if i test dirty? I am so stressed out PLEASE HELP!! I was sure that telling my "baby daddy" that he is a father was the right thing because he is a good hardworking guy and i thought he deserved to know.. now i feel so foolish

No, you may get a small punishment if they find marijuana in your system, but there would need to be proof that you are an unfit parent. Recreational marijuana use does not make you an unfit parent. There may be a court hearing, in which case you explain the situation to a judge, or a social worker may come and interview you.

Alphonsine Originally Answered: Can a 15 year old expecting mother get like welfare even though shes not a single mother?
I would think it depends on which area you live in. I know for a fact that where I'm at teen mothers can get on welfare, if whoever they are staying with income qualifies. Since you don't work, they would take in consideration your parents income. It wouldn't hurt to go to your Human service department and ask. You could always get a part time job. My cousin got knocked up at 15 and that's what she did .Her sister got pregnant at 17 and she ended up working at Subway and ended up being the store manager after being there for 5 years. Welfare is for ALL needy mothers...regardless of age or marital status. Whoever said that you couldn't get welfare since you're underage is lying. We keep hearing teen moms bashed and the main reason is " that's where MY tax dollars are going". Tax dollars are also going to support low lifes in prison...but where's the complaining there.... I wouldn't be afraid to look into part time jobs at a fast food place or a store,etc. The boyfriend should definitely start putting in 30 applications a week. I would hit every gas station, fast food,etc in your town and anything within a 20 mile radius. He needs to be responsible and help support your baby. ETA: Why would ANYONE abort a 20 week baby....at that age you can feel them move around and stuff...it makes the pregnancy so much more "real". I would NEVER suggest someone to abort a living breathing little thing. There are other parasites that get our tax dollars... prison inmates...i knew a guy that said that prison life was great- free meals,etc. People need to get off their high horse when it comes to taxes. We get some of it back each year. Some of us don't pay in millions or more each year like some super super rich folk do. Also welfare isn't just for teen/young mothers, its for anyone that "qualfies". I know families that were never on it because they had well paying careers then they lost their jobs and ended up on public assistance. I also knew a guy that kept griping about where his tax dollars were going to welfare and he ended up loosing his well paid job and what do you, ended up getting some public assistance himself! Nothing is EVER guaranteed in this life. You can have it all then in a second LOOSE it ALL. People should never take anything for granted or bash people less fortunate then themselves...because who knows, in the future the roles could be reversed and the basher is the one that gets bashed for being on welfare...that's called KARMA.

Yes, if you test positive, she can get temporary custody. It happened to a friend of a friend of mine. If you are forced to leave the house, you can take the baby with you. The police will come if called and either let you take the baby or take you all to the station until things can be worked out. ie you tested, child services called, your mom`s house checked. One of you will get the baby in a few days or so. It was the right thing to do. Now you can get child support. Now that he is in the picture, he can get custody instead of your mom if his house checks out and he has the resources to care for him. She probably did not want him to know cause he will be another person she has to deal with to get your son. Tell him about this problem also.

You did nothing wrong, you are legally an adult, and your mother is a nasty controlling bi**h (sorry). Your son's father has every right to know that he's a dad, and to be a part of his son's life if he so chooses. I'd also start thinking about a paternity test and child support. Stop smoking pot, get your $#!t together, get a job and get as far away as you can from mommy dearest- she's poison.

I really hope you didn't smoke with your son around! I can't stand stupid parents that do that. Why would your mom get mad for you telling the father he is your sons dad? You had a baby by him so he does have the right to know. Hmm Im not sure if they can take him from you but I think they can. They might see you as a bad influence to your child.

Calm down, your mother's blowing smoke. You've never lost custody of the boy, correct? Your mother has no claim to him, and cannot stop you from leaving with him. She can call CPS, which will be a pain, but they will have to find you unfit to remove your son from you. The police aren't going to drug test you just because your mother tells them you've smoked pot. You'd actually need to be caught with the possession of it or under the influence of it for the police or CPS to even be able to take that accusation into consideration. Ditch the pot and anything that goes with it. You shouldn't be smoking it in the first place with an infant to care for.

she can't take your baby. She can kick you out though, but not force you to leave without your baby. And, you won't test positive for weed if it was one time 2 weeks ago. If you had been smoking regularly up untill 2 weeks ago, then you would test positive for 30-60 days after depending on how heavy you were using. She doesn't have anything on you.
