My question involves juvenile law in the State of: Alabama
I'm sixteen with a daughter who is 5 months old. I'm still in school and I'm working. I have a full scholarship to college and will attend next year with my daughter. So this post is not about being a young mother, please and thank you. I am trying to do the right things and be able to provide for my daughter. My older brother rented an apartment and my daughter and I are staying here also. However, my parents still come over everyday and they have many opinions that I don't like to hear, but I know they are just trying to help. My problem is that my mom acts like I am never doing the right thing but I am still in school and work at least 30 hours a week. I am not in complete control over my daughter because as my mother says, she still has control over me because I am a child. We are having disagreements and I believe I need to be able to be independent to make my own decisions that are best for my daughter. I thought getting a place with my older brother, because he can get in the legal contract of renting would help the situation but it has only made it worse. I know I am underage and can not rent an apartment by myself but my question is- is there any way around that? Is there any advice for me? I will be off to college next year with an apartment on campus, do I just have to wait this out? Sorry it is so long.
