What is the youngest age that a minor can move out of her parents home? The legal age of majority in the state is 18. A minor should never be encouraged to leave the family or guardian's home of their own volition. There are times when circumstances call for immediate action, something that Louisiana DSS is not always able to provide due to the numerous problems created by the hurricane disaster. If the young man has a safe place to go where there are adults willing to assist him, he could go there for assuring his own safety. The adult(s) must notify authorities that he is at their residence to avoid legal complications. A serious issue is, the minor apparently has a legal guardian appointed by the court, therefore any person interfering with the custodial rights of said guardian(s) can be cited for contempt of court and other infractions of the law. The notification of authorities does not mean the minor cannot or will not be taken into custody and returned to the guardian(s) home or to a juvenile facility. The best option is to contact one of the following agencies for assistance... LA. DSS at 1-225-342-0236, National Child Abuse Hotline 1-800-422-4453, Youth Crisis Services 1-800-448-4463, Youth Emergency Services 1-800-899-5437. The young man might also wish to visit Teenline Online an organization staffed by teens to assist teens in solving their problems, http://www.teenlineonline.org Be advised that phone and internet usage can be easily monitored.
