The little information i have found out about that is depending on what state but most states you can live on you own when your 16. im not sure if you have to have you parents perrmission or not but if they say no you may get amansappatted... sorry my spellings crappy. if you find out more information email me @ atomic_bonic_love@yahoo.com my question is relavent No, the age of legal majority in most states is 18, in Alabama and Nebraska it is 19 in Mississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21. There are some states that have a legal process for early emancipation of a minor who is at least 16 years of age. For more specific information you can consult the laws of your state or contact the clerk of the juvenile or family court in the county where you reside.

Yes, at the age of 16 you are allowed to move out if you want in the UK but that is only if you take care of yourself and not causing harm. Then they can make you go back home.

You can not emancipate yourself but in most states you can seek emancipation by the court when you are 16. You have to fill the criteria when it comes to supporting yourself, school and getting a place to live etc.

Only if the court allows you to. As a minor you are not allowed to decide for yourself.

First of all, you must live in a state were you can get emancipation. Only about half the states allow it. If you live in a state where it is allowed, you will have to show the court that you can support yourself, take care of yourself and not be a burden on society.

No, the only thing different is that you are allowed to make medical decisions regarding yourself and your child.

It depends on the laws where you live. Discuss this with your father and mother, or your court representative.

You have legal rights from birth. If you mean regarding custody and decide who to live with, you have to be 18 to decide by yourself.

User Avatar

Here the answer is no firstly you are a minor secondly you are pregnant so you will not be allowed to stay by yourself anywhere.

Only with parental permission until you are 18. Then you can decide for yourself.

No. A minor is not allowed to decide, it's the parents or the court.

User Avatar

In the US; No, you are not allowed to decide where to live until you are 18yo. Up until then it is up to your parents to decide.

What you've described is a custody issue, not an emancipation issue (emancipation means that you live on your own and support yourself). Mom needs to petition the court for custody. At your age you'd be allowed to state who you would rather live with, and the judge will take your wishes into consideration when making the final decision.

Depends on where you live. The age to seek emancipation with the court is usually 16 but can be younger. You will have to have a place to live and be able to pay your bills, have a job etc.

User Avatar

The court does not allow a 14yo to live on their own. 16 is the earliest you can try to get emancipated by the court and then you have to be able to support yourself.

If they won't let you live on your own, it stands to reason that they aren't going to approve your emancipation. You will have to convince the court (if emancipation is allowed in your state) that you can take care of yourself (food, shelter, schooling) and that you are better off on your own than with your parents. These are pretty hard to prove.
