Can a 16-year-old move out without her parents' consent?

At the tender age of sixteen you can not move out without your

parents permission. In order to be independent you will honestly

have to be emancipated and then you can make decisions for yourself

as an adult. Once this process has been done their is no turning

back because you don't like the outcome of the situation. If you

choose this option then your parents will no longer be responsible

for you, and you can't expect them to run to your rescue if

something harmful happens and you need their help and protection.

Think long and hard about this because this is a really big

decision to make. It could change your life forever.
