Abortion and Minors (under 18 years old)
According to Florida State Law, if you are under 18 years old you will need parental consent to have an abortion or seek a judicial bypass.
- If you are unable to obtain parental consent, you are able to request a court order from your local courthouse.
- If the judge believes in your ability to make this mature decision on your own, he/she may issue a judicial bypass to you.
- Whether it may be to protect your privacy, or informing your parents is not in your best interests, minors have the right to receive a judicial bypass to have an abortion without informing a parental guardian.
