The California Pregnant and Parenting Youth Guide and website have a section dedicated to issues faced by the parents of a pregnant or parenting minor.
For parents in this situation, the “Grandparents” section covers:
- your child’s rights and duties as a parent,
- your duties to your child, and
- your rights and duties to your grandchild.
This section reminds parents that they cannot make decisions regarding a child’s pregnancy. Also, parents must support children until they turn 18, get married, or become emancipated.
The section also includes information on custody, visitation, guardianship and government aid for grandparents.
