There are no laws against dating; only against sexual contact. But the age of consent in New York State is 17. So a 17-year-old in NYS can date and have sex with whoever they want (as long as the other person has also reached the age of consent).

The 17-year-old's parents might not like it, but they cannot legally press charges against the 27-year-old, even if sexual contact had taken place.

Not legally, but if parental consent is given, there's not really any repercussion or consequence.

You have to be 18 to marry without parental consent. If you are 16/17 you can marry with parental consent. If you are under 16 you need parental consent and court approval.

The legal age for parental consent is 16, without parental consent, it is 18 years of age to be legally married.

Legally you must be an adult to sign a contract. With Parental consent and cosigning, you could get an apartment.

No, you need parental consent or you must be legally emancipated. The age of majority is 18.

You must be at least 16 to move out of your parent's home in Ireland with parental consent. If there is no parental consent, the age to legally move out of Ireland is 18.

No, parental consent does not change the fact that the minor must be of the legal age of majority (18, to legally leave parental custody; nor does parental consent supercede existing laws pertaining to parental responsibility of minor children.

They cannot do so legally. Unless they have parental permission.

User Avatar

Yes, with parental consent or when married (also needs parental consent) and therefor emancipated.

User Avatar

No, a 15 year old can not move out without parental consent in Massachusetts. A minor can only move out if they are legally emancipated.

User Avatar

Actually this might come as a surprise to you that it is against the Law to move out with or without parental consent before you are 19.

18, unless you have parental consent or have been legally emancipated.

Yes, if they have parental permission. It does not relieve the parents of their responsibilities.
