Very few states allow the emancipation of minors. Those states that do have grounds and procedures rarely grant emancipation rights to a minor for reasons other than to allow the minor to be adopted or be placed in state custody to receive public assistance. There is no court in any state with emancipation status that would allow a minor to become emancipated for the purpose of cohabitation.

No judge in any state will emancipate a minor if her intention upon being emancipated is to move in with her boyfriend. That is not the purpose of emancipation.

They are emancipated and can live where they wish. They are responsible for their own housing and sustinance.

Yes, but depending on where you live only if you're legally emancipated.

Yes at 16 you can move out in most parts of the world. And you can stay with your boyfriend .

Nope. Not until you are either emancipated or 18 years old.

At 16, you need parental permission anyways just to be emancipated. But with parental permission, I think she can live with her boyfriend. The only problem would be that she's a minor and he's not, but I think she is much less a minor when emancipated.

yes you can get emancipated in kansas

Once a person is emancipated they can live in their own apartment or home. The emancipated can also live with a sibling or other family member if they choose.

It is not illegal to live with your boyfriend, but you would need your parents' permission and your boyfriend's parents. A minor can only choose where to live if they are legally emancipated. Also, if your parents do not want you and your baby to live with them, they are legally required to make other arrangements, because they are responsible for you until you are 18 regardless of their wishes. You could, however, become a ward of the state where you reside, or become legally emancipated.

Depends...... What state do you live in, have you been emancipated? Are your legal gaurdian(s) okay with this? Unless you are emancipated as a youth, your gaurdian(s) get to make those decisions for you. Sorry :(

No, you are medically emancipated, but you are not emancipated legally to make your own choices and live where you please.

Only if the minor has been legally emancipated by the court. And no judge is going to emancipate a minor so they can go live with their boyfriend. When you turn 18 you can move anywhere you want.

Legally no. Unless you have parental consent or you have been emancipated by the court system where you live

A 16-year-old is a minor and their parents get to decide where they live, unless they have been emancipated. A judge is NOT going to emancipate you if your plan is to drop out of school and live with your boyfriend.

That is the purpose of getting emancipated. You are responsible for your own housing arrangements.

If you are emancipated you can live anywhere you want. And, yes, you will be expected to pay rent! One of the most common rules to become emancipated is that you show you can support yourself.

{| |- | If your parents give permision, otherwise, no, you certainly cannot. You must be an adult to decide where you wish to live. Until your reach the age of majority your parents are responsible for you, including where you live. |}
