Hi,

 

As the title suggests my 16 year old is pregnant (shocked me somewhat). She lives at home and we have a healthy relationship and she wants to stay here, and I am happy about that. Babys father is local but they're not in a relationship and he won't be moving in or anything like that.

 

Her father and I do claim a relatively small amount child tax credits for her, since she's still in school and is planning on 6th form in Sept. She fully intends to go ahead with this, and we'll support that for obvious reasons.

 

My question is, how do benefits work when she has the baby? Does she claim independently, and our claim has to stop, or can we roll her baby into our claim? Its not my baby and I won't be parenting it, and I won't be a full time carer to it.

 

Its just something we've never had to face before.

She will need to claim for herself and her baby. I went through this with my daughter at 17. It was 11 yrs ago, how time flies. She also had to give the fathers details but am not sure how they go about it all now

 

with regard child support, back then it was required of her to give his details. Good luck in getting it sorted out. It was a massive shock to me 11 yrs ago but wow the love my grandchild brought us is amazing.
