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.
