Best Answer

No. Any person regardless of age who is under a court order must receive permission from the court or an agency of authority to change residence or take any action that might be contrary to the standing order. In Missouri the legal age of majority is not 17, it is 18. The MO. juvenile code designates a 17-year-old as being an "adult". This only pertains to criminal matters in which the minor can be charged as an adult and prosecuted in an adult court. The juvenile code does not supercede the state's legal age of majority (18).
