The age of majority in Louisiana is 18 (LA. Civil Code...Book 1, Title 8, Chapter 2). The age of majority in Mississippi is 21, the difficulty with the laws of Mississippi is the way they are interpreted. The state does not have early emancipation status, but generally if someone who is at least 18 is marries (with parentaly permission) or joins the military at 17 (with parental permission) they are considered emancipated. Further more anyone who is at least 18 and moves from the family home, is gainfully employed and self-supporting is considered an "independant minor" meaning no action on the part of authorities to return the person to parental custody would be taken except in certain circumstances. (MCA Sections: 93-5-23 and 93-11-65).
