It's usually 12, but it's the parents call as to how mature they think their 12 year old is. Most parent's prefer having a relative come over to keep things in order. Some 12 year olds are quite mature while others are not. If it's bothering you talk to your parents and ask them to give you a chance. If they agree, then you'd better obey their rules: Don't answer the door to ANYONE Don't have friends over to party If you want one friend over then ask your parent's permission Don't wreck the house! Clean up after yourself If someone phones your parents, write down the message and be sure they get it. Be sure you have the phoned # where your parents are in case of an emergency. No drugs! No alcohol! No girls! If you can prove the first time around you are capable of the above, then your parents will probably consider leaving you alone more. You have to prove you are mature and independent and earn this from your parents. If they don't, they will never trust you. Sometimes things happen and word can get around at school or through your friends that you will be alone and come for a surprise visit and start to party on. Some of my adult friends have had their kids so-called friends completely ruin their home. Once these kids are in the door you have little control over the situation and you are is a predicament as to whether to call the police to get things under control or you let them ruin your parents home.

It is not illegal to runaway from home in the state of Oregon. The reasoning is that the child may be running away from a hard home life or traumatic situation.

In the state of Oregon, a child can legally stay home alone when they are 10 years old. It is not recommended however that a child be left home alone until they are least age 12.

starting a home health agency in Oregon requires a licensure from your state. There are several other requirements that you have to meet.

There is no legal age in Oregon that a child may be left home alone, however, there is a suggested age of 10. It is really up to the judgment of the parent and the maturity level of the child.

User Avatar

it varies from state to state. however, if the child can take care of himself, clen up after himself and cook for himself ususally its in the early teens. contact your local law enforcement dept. however, if something were to happen or an injury occured the parents/legal guardians can be held reponsible. this entails a possible jail time, parenting classes, and fines.

In Pennsylvania, it is not illegal for a child to run away from home. Many parents in the state worry about their child because there are no laws in place to keep them at home.

The law in Kansas says that if a child is abandoned they must be taken by the state. The state will find the child a new home.

Oregon law indicates 10 years old. There are very few states in the U.S. with legal minimum ages for children home alone, but many state agencies have published guidelines. Georgia, Illiniois, Maryland and Oregon are a few of the states with specific ages specified in their laws.12 years of age appears to be the most common recommendation. Below in Related Links is an article entitled Home Alone Children Legal Age Limits which provides one guideline from a California agency representative who suggests that 8 year olds and over can be left at home for up to several hours (usually after school before a parent gets home from work). This site also provides a state by state comparison with references. From the Oregon reference on this site it states: "At what age can a child be left home alone? Legally at 10 years of age" followed by the Oregon state ordinance.

Arizona has not passed legislation about leaving children at home. However, there are child welfare laws that can be applied if the child is left in a hazardous situation and is not able to look after themselves.

Normally when a child runs away, there is an investigation that determines what should be done with the child.

User Avatar

It depends. If you get a ticket in Washington and do not pay, WA will notify your home state and then your home state will suspend your license. Any tickets you receive in WA will normally be reported to your home state and treated in accordance with the point system in your home state. WA can suspend your right to drive in their state even if you have a valid drivers license from another state.

No you can't. A foster child has frequent visits with his family as required my state policy. Actually, in my state, the child must first be placed as closed to his home area as possible. Check with your area state agency.

Some states will make you make child support payments to the state.

No; however, the State can file a lien on the home which will have to be satisfied before ownership is transferred.
