Totally depending on where you are from. If you're from the US then you may just be considered a run away if you are under 16. If you are 16, or older then im sure you can leave home, but make sure your parent/parents... know where you are going, and when you will be back. But if you have a good reason to be separating yourself from your parent/parents (e.g. any kind of abuse) then you might want to contact someone who can help you out in finding a safe environment to be in. Otherwise in Canada, you can legally move out at 16, without your parents permission, and the most the police would do is make sure you are not in danger in any kind of way.

What age a child can ask to live with a parent?

This depends upon the age of the child and the child's maturity. Generally, in New York State when a child is fourteen (14) years old the Judge gives great deference to the child's wishes. Living with one parent also depends on the best interests of the child; perhaps one parent does not have an suitable housing for the child. That is a consideration, and even if the child is 14 years old and desires to live with that parent, the parent with inadequate housing might not get custody. Mildred J. Michalczyk
