A 16 year old girl can not move out of her parents house to go and live with her 18 year old boyfriend, because she is not of age and she is not grown. DSS can and will step in if the parents allow this young lady to move. If she attemps to run away from home and move in DSS will remove her from the home.

No, they are still a minor. The parents are responsible for the child until they reach 18.

No, until you are 18, you are subject to the decisions of your parents or guardians.

You are 17 years old. You probably have less than a year then you can move out of your parents house and move with your boyfriend. Just give this year a time to save up some money and to be with your family. If you run away your parents will find out. You can only get married at your age with your parents consent. Good luck and God Bless:)

With parental consent, yes. The move does not relieve the girls' parents from being responsible for her support, welfare and maintenance.

yes a 19 year old can move out of her parents house with her children

yea movin out with a 22 year old boyfriend is not bad long as u can handle urself!!! that's my opinion

Not without parental consent until you are 18. The pregnancy does not emancipate you.

In most places she will be considered an adult. She can live where she wants to.

a 16 year old can move out of parents house without consent. Yes, with a parents consent only!

A 16-year-old can move out of their parents house in Canada. I'm 16 and I'm living with my boyfriend with no troubles at all. I have talked too the Police, Children's Aid and even a Judge. So, yes, you can move out of your parents house at 16 years old.

The minor female would need her parents' consent before she could legally engage in a change of residency.

move out of my parents house!!!

Yes, she can move in with her boyfriend. She will have to have her father's permission.

Technically, no, until they reach the age of majority in their state (usually 18) they are the responsibility of the parents and live where the parents want them to.

They can only do so if the parents give their permission to do so. Otherwise they will have to wait until they turn 18.

A 17 year old can't move out from TN and move in with her boyfriend in Arizona without parental permission. If the parents approve, the 17 year can move out.

The only way you ca move in with him if your parents give all your rights to your boyfriend, but you can't move out without your parents permission because your still a minor and your boyfriend is 23 and he could go to jail if your parents are not ok with it. So just stay home and with at least a year or two and see how everything is going with your parents and your boyfriend. No, the legal age for moving out without your parents permission is 18-years-old.

you can leave home (with parents permission) at 16 so you probably can move to your other parents house. (If you wait one year then you can leave and get your own house).

No. As long as you are a minor you are not allowed to move without their consent or being emancipated.
