The minimum age of majority in the U.S. is 18, therefore a 16-year old would not be eligible to move from parental custody without their permission. However, authorities rarely interfere in circumstances that involve a minor moving into a relative's home unless the parents object or there are mitigating circumstances. If the environment was considered unsafe or unsuitable some action would probably be initiated on the part of social services. Or if the minor did not adhere to certain requirements such as the state's compulsory education law. Not unless the court gives the aunt legal custody.
Not normally you have to be 18 or older to leave home without your parent/parents permission.
i live in Arkansas and 16years old pregnant and feel thretened how can i leave home
Go live with a relative. I did this when I was that old. I went to live my aunt and uncle in Calif and graduated from high school there. * If you leave home without parental permission or being emancipated, then your parents can report you as a runaway and have you returned home. You can go live with a relative IF your parents agree to allow it.
she is kits aunt who ran away from home to live with a puritan man (uncle matthew) with out her fathers blessing
Not sure about where you live, to know the laws. In the state of Georgia, you are legal to leave home at the age of 17, and free to live where you want to.
You can leave your home if you are 17 and live in NC depending on the reason for leaving and where you are going to live. If you are going to live with a family member, you can often do this without a judgment from the court system.
In most States you are a minor until you are 18. However, you can go to Child Aid and report the abuse and suggest to them you would prefer to live with either your grandparents or a relative such as an aunt.
She is sent out to go to live with her Aunt, her only remaining family member.
Certainly, you can live anywhere your parents will allow you to live.
No, it's the parents that decide where you have to live.
Piggy's aunt runs a candy store. Piggy live with his aunt because both of his parent are dead when he was little
You probably mean 'leave home' i.e depart from home, rather than 'live at home' i.e. stay at home.
It depends on what state you live in and your state laws.
it nothing whong with that i look at it like this you got a roof over your head and a bed to sleep on. Not unless your parents are in agreement with it or there is court approval. If you simply leave and Aunt takes you in, she could be facing charges for doing so. The exact charges would depend on the laws of your state, but some possible ones are contributing to the delinquency of a minor, harboring a runaway, custodial interference, etc.
no you need to be 18 to live home without parents permission
You would be a runaway. Most likely will the police bring you back but not put you in jail. Your uncle and aunt will go to jail though for kidnapping since they do not have your parents consent to have you live with them. You can not decide where to live until you are 18.
In Canada, prior to the age of 18 you can only leave home with the consent of your parents.
There is no law against leaving home to live with another family member, but there is no way of telling how your parents will react.
