Q:

A: Dear Frosh, Yes, in New York State, a woman of any age can get medical services, including an abortion, without parental notification. It is possible for minors to have an abortion without notifying their parents in some other states as well.

Q: 

Are you pro-abortion and in favor of parental consent?

A: I would hope, given the situation, that my relationship with my daughter would be strong enough that she would want to tell me and/or her mother that she was A) pregnant and B) considering an abortion. We work very hard to have that kind of openness. That being said, I don''t think it should be mandated that I know by law. While I would be sad and disappointed if she didn''t come to us first, I certainly don''t need the government interfering in our relationship. THAT being said, of course, I''d prefer she not get pregnant in the first place. But hey, if wishes were fishes… It''s a sad but true fact, that we need protect the rights of these girls. Some parents would be willing to listen, and even if they were disappointed, they would still be there for their daughter, but some...


Q: 

Is there a clinic or something where you can get tested for an STD free or without a parent/guardian?

A: In the UK you can go to any GUM clinic (Genito-Urinary-Medicine) and get checked over. The service is free and confidential, and if you have caught something, then it wont even go on your GPs notes about you and you will be treated for free. The worst thing that can happen to blow your cover is if someone you know sees you going in. Take this little episode as a warning and dont have sex with a guy unless he has a condom on, I dont care how much he moans You probably have a UTI or bladder infection. I''ve had lots of them. They aren''t an std. Also planned parenthood probably won''t treat a UTI but you need to get it checked out bc they can turn into a kidney infection if left untreated and that can be very serious. They will just give you anitbiotics. Tell your parents you think you have...


Q: 

''Safe Haven'' laws: good or promoting secrecy and usurping parental rights?

A: Face it, not all families are warm, nurturing, reasonable, open, etc. In an ideal world, sure parents should have knowledge of what their children are doing, but in reality its not always the best idea. This is why I disagree with parental notification for minors seeking abortions as well. Fact is, you can''t always trust relatives. (This is different than family, in my opinion.) The Safe Haven laws are saving lives. It is now less common to hear of babies in trash cans or alleys. While there are still isolated reports overall the laws have allowed a connection and an anonymous way to do the right thing- allow an unwanted infant a life with a family who wants them. Like it or not, we need Safe Haven laws. I think these laws offer a viable...


Q: 

Intent to Relocate notification

A: Hi Jill, the requirement of the notification of Relocation is no longer applicable and you must instead file a Petition to Relocate with Child and have the same served upon the any other person having a right of time sharing with and to the child subject to the relocation. There is no time frame set out under the statute with regard to how many days you must file the Petition before the relocation date. However from a logistical stand point you should allow a minimum of 120 days unless you are planning on seeking a Temporary Order to Relocate which in that case allow for 60 days and plan on returning to argue the merits of having the court grant a permanent order for relocation. For more information you should review Florida Statute 61.13001 with the effective date...

Q: 

The pill where do I get it and do my parents have to know?

A: Dear Clueless About the Pill, Yes, in the United States, the pill is prescribed to you by your health care provider. In order to determine whether or not the pill is a good option for you, your provider will do a physical exam and evaluate your medical history. This check-up and discussion at your visit are important because some women have health risk factors that would make other forms of contraception better choices. You mention in your letter that you don`t want your parents to know that you`re seeking the pill. If you are a minor (under eighteen years), and you live in the United States, you have rights to confidential reproductive health care. What this means is that unless you consent or give permission to your health care provider, s/he cannot disclose your medical records to...


Q: 

Parents: Moved: No notifications filed

A: Tasha: DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT A LAWYER or ATTORNEY. I am someone who has experience with family law issues, and am sharing my OPINION only. For the exact law as it pertains to your specific case contact a Professional Attorney in your area/county/country. I recommend that you hire a Professional Attorney: Most Attorneys offer 1/2 free consultation time to discuss case and payment options. - First when you BOTH moved you were to file a "notification of Move" legal paper work thereby informaing each other where your new residence is. - There is no "Abandonment" because you did not follow legal process when moving, sorry. - Contact an Attorney: File legal papers such as Child Support and Financial Declarations AND Parenting Plans since it appears there are...
