Yes, she may leave home and NO you can't do anything by law in Ontario.

You should tell a parent first of all. And then take it from there. I would suggest also letting the school know, however, you MUST tell a parent before anything.

No... In the state of mo...,you can freely leave and your parents cant do anything....

I'm not a lawyer or anything, but I think that it depends on what the situation is. Like if the sober parent is taking good care of the kid and the drug parent isn't abusing the kid or anything I don't think they can be removed.

The other parent can file an injunction to stop it.

In Ontario one is able to get a stress leave with a doctors prescription. It is a lot like medical leave and if one has benefits it permits a person to receive pay while absent from work.

18 if there is no legal agreement between parents or a court order. anything younger than 18 requires one or both.

In Canada, the age that a child/youth can leave home varies from province to province. In Ontario a youth can leave home, without parental permission, at the age of 16.

There are many factors involved. In most cases the authorities will not allow a minor to leave the country without permission of the other parent.

No, At 17 your child is old enough to make his own dessicions. I think, depending on the country

He Lives In Startford,Ontario,Canada !

If that is what the parent wants, they can do so. The parent can decide where the minor lives.

After a while I think they do

you dont, you just leave them alone!

In Ontario, yes a 16 yr old can move out on their own.

I'm still here!Can't see why anyone would want to leave Ontario unless it is work related, or they simply want to live in the West (where you get little snow in winter).

As in relocating, not without the permission of the court.

You cannot separate it, but if you wait until midnight the parent will leave its baby.

you can get parent permision at 16, but you can leave when you want at 18

No, you do not have to leave them anything. There is no requirement for a sibling to receive any portion of an estate. The will can leave anything to anyone once the debts are cleared. Consult a probate attorney for drafting a will.

If the child is over the age of majority, the parent has no requirement to leave them anything. If they are a minor, the court will make sure that the child is taken care of, even if it means going against the will.
