Legal Guides for Pregnant and Parenting Minors

The Partnership is spearheading an initiative to develop state-specific practical guides to inform pregnant and parenting minors and their families of their legal rights and resources.

The first guides (available below) were written by the School of Government, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Using that model, with permission from UNC Chapel Hill, Florida attorneys developed a minors’/families’ guide for Florida (see below). The National Partnership has also prepared a guide for California.
