The age of majority in WA is 18. Anyone under that age who has not been emancipated in some manner is considered to be a minor, and their parents have the right to decide where they live. WA will allow you to petition for emancipation at 16. Your parents will be notified, and they can contest the emancipation. If they do so, then you will have to provide 'clear and convincing evidence' that emancipation would be in your best interest. You will also have to prove that you have the ability to support yourself.

You can DRIVE in Washington state with an Aussie license as a tourist, but if you permanently move there you have to take the same test as the locals and pass it to get a Washington license. It's not just a swap.

In the state of Missouri you CAN move out at 17 you are considered an adult!, and the juvenile court stated you can move out of state as long as you make sure the laws there are ok with it as well i am from Missouri i have 3 months till i turn 18 and i am moving out . so yes you can move out at 17 in Missouri

Well, no. You are legal at age 18. That's when you can move out. That rule applies to everyone in the U.S.A.

Doesn't work that way in Washington. You have to be the age of majority, 18, before you can move out unless you have their permission or are emancipated.

Washington state used to be a territory (Washington territory) before it became a state. But then on Nov. 11 1889 Washington became an official state. So now Washington is a state and not a territory.

The state of Washington currently does not have a state beverage.

Not unless it is part of a proper name. The expression "Washington state" is used to indicate the state instead of the city (Washington DC). It would be capitalized if "Washington State" meant "Washington State University."

Because they named Washington state after George Washington

Washington DC has never been a state.
