Theoretically a person who is at least 16-years of age can file a petition for emancipation rights in the appropriate court in the state in which they live. The reality is such petitions are very seldom granted, and those few that are can be modified or rescindable at the discretion of the court. Emancipation of minors is not as simple nor as permanent as it is often presumed to be.

You are confusing legal with proper civil procedure. It is legal to leave court papers at your doorstep. It is also legal to leave the newspaper. It is not considered personal service within the intent of the rules of civil procedure to leave court papers that are intended for personal service at the doorstep.

no, unless they leave their parents home and go to a legal adult's house and that adult files as the minor's legal guardian

The legal age of majority is 18. Unless you are 18 you will need parental consent or legal emancipation.

If your parents are not your biological parents and have adopted you and made themselves your legal guardians then they would have to have adoption papers or it wouldn't be legal.

No. And your mother has no legal right to ask you to leave until you are 18. If she kicked you out she is breaking the law.

she would only be his gardian if his parent or gardian signs legal papers saying 'yes my child is under this parents care blah blah blah' and so on

Yes as long as the powers set forth in the POA extend to legal matters at hand. For example, some states had held that an agent under a POA did not have the right to sell the principal's real estate unless the POA said it specifically, sometimes even by requiring the address of the house to be recited in the POA. In that case, the agent could not sign legal papers selling the house of the principal.

In most states, if the child is of legal age(18), you can ask. However, it is also the law that you can serve him/her with eviction papers...even if they do not pay rent. As a matter of legalities, it is their home too even if you own it. The eviction papers prove that your child is a legal adult and you can make him/her move out.
