Pregnant minors ask for legal representation and information in a variety of circumstances:
For the minor who seeks to terminate a pregnancy but is unable to obtain parental consent and wishes to apply for a judicial bypass.
For the minor who seeks to continue a pregnancy and experiences teen dating violence, family violence or parental pressure to terminate, resulting in the need for a protective order.
For minors who seek information on the requirement to file for emancipation.
For the minor who seeks access to educational opportunities and faces denial due to pregnancy and parenting (Title IX violations).
