This is not legal advice and should not be relied upon as such. Consult the specific laws for the state and county in which you reside for the rules that apply. In most states, any 18 year old is considered an adult and is capable of deciding when and where they reside. They have the ability to contract for housing. SOME states allow minors to become emancipated under specific circumstances, but this is not just a matter of filling out some paperwork. A minor is the responsibility of their parents until such time as they reach the age of majority or are legally emancipated. The parents are required to provide for the support of their minor children. If the parents give permission, the minor can live in another location. Such permission does not relieve the parents of the responsibility to provide support. If the parents do not give permission, the minor can be considered a runaway. Charges may apply to individuals that aid and abet such runaways, particularly if they are under the age of consent. In some states it is my understanding that this is not enforced for 17 year olds that leave home. If you are subject to abuse, you should contact social services for your area. They will assist you in getting out of the bad environment and into a safe place.
No. Your parents can report you as runaway, and you will be picked up by the authorities and returned home.
Basically anyone up to the age of 17 can be charged with runaway. But if you are 17-18, they can bring you back home, but will not file runaway charges
No. You are only considered a runaway if your parents do not know where you are.
12 years old
No she can not. As long as you are a minor you will need their consent.
No, in Pennsylvania a minor cannot move out of their parents home until they reach 18 years old. A 16 year old could be considered a runaway if they leave home.
Depends on what state.
A 17-year-old is a minor and therefore does not get to choose where they live. Ever heard of the Becca Law? It was passed in WA after a teenage runaway was murdered. It basically gave parents more 'power' in dealing with runaway/disobedient/truant children. You would be considered a runaway and you would be returned home.
i have no idea what the heck you are talking about
no you have to be emancipated by a parent,otherwise you would be considered a runaway...
You are only considered a runaway if your parents do not know where you are. However, that is not to say that they cannot force you to come home. I am not very sure on moving out at 17 laws in Iowa. I have heard it's just a personal issue unless you are in danger, debt, or homeless... But I can't be for sure.
18 otherwise you are a runaway
To be able to move out ("leave home") from your parent's home in Oklahoma (without them being able to call the police or stop you legally) you must be eighteen.
Yes. A 17-year old is considered a runaway. Not until the legal age of 18 can she move out legally.
No. They will be considered elopement/runaway.
Your parents could report you as a runaway, and you could be picked up and returned home.
You can move out if your parents house whenever you please but you have to have their permission and somewhere to go. Unless you are 18 or over.
18 unless you have parental permission.
12. Although you have to be in the care of a trusted adult. Preferablly family member.
If they have their parents' permission to do so. Otherwise they are considered a runaway.
Your parents will likely report you as a runaway and you will be picked up and returned home.
Yes, the police will assist you parents in finding you. You will be listed as a runaway. If they find you they will return you home.
your parents can kick you out at age 18, but you are able in Georgia to leave your home at age 17, with out getting charged of anything or be considered a runaway. Its because of the loop hole in Georgia laws and Georgia only
No. In many states you would be reported as a runaway. Anyone who takes you in could be charged with harboring a runaway or kidnapping. If there is abuse or neglect at home, notify a teacher or school counselor.
Yes, you will still be considered a resident of the state of California if you sell your home and move out of the United States.
