The legal age of majority for the state is 18, anyone under that age cannot enter into a legal contract of any sort, unless an exception has been granted by the court of jurisdiction.

{| |- | No, they cannot sign the lease paperwork. They can certainly move into the apartment with the permission of the parents. And if the parents or boyfriend sign the lease, there should be no problems. |}

Yes she can since she has their permission. Or if she has obtained an order of emancipation from the court. Just being pregnant does not change the requirements to move out.

No, the age of emancipation in the US is 18 years old. If there are extenuating circumstances, permission would have to be granted by court order.No, the age of emancipation in the US is 18 years old.

If she has her parents' permission. Until she reaches the age of majority, she is the responsibility of her parents. She can either seek emancipation or permission to marry.

No, she can't unless she have permission from her parents to move out. She is still legally a minor. If she files for emancipation, well that changes things.

Is the apartment in your name only? If so, then yes, you can.

You did not make it plain if she was co-renting with your boyfriend or she has her own apartment in the same complex. If she is sharing rent with him then this is not a good set-up and your boyfriend should not be having anything to do with her. If she is renting her own apartment (possibly in the same building) she may be the one trying to cause mistrust between you and your boyfriend by purposely not answering your question as to whether there is anything going on with your boyfriend and her. Be smart, talk to your boyfriend and if she is living in his apartment tell him it's either her or you. If she is just living in the same apartment complex he may be telling the truth and it may be his ex trying to be close to him and he is being honest about it to you and there is nothing he can do about her renting in the same complex. Straighten this problem out with your boyfriend as soon as you can. Don't bother speaking with his ex.

If you move in with your boyfriend, by law you are supposed to add your name to the lease with the landlord. All persons age 18 and over are supposed to be added to the lease if they are permanent residents.

No, a judge would never allow your parents to do that to your boyfriend.

User Avatar

Yes, she can move in with her boyfriend. She will have to have parental permission.

User Avatar

No. Sorry, but that is not a sufficient reason for emancipation.

You'd have to petition the court for emancipation and meet all the requirements for it. It's rarely granted. And no court will emancipate a minor so she can move in with her boyfriend-that's not the purpose of emancipation.

Only if you have parental permission.

User Avatar

In some case yes. That is mental abuse and if you can take care of yourself, you can get emancipated. But you should check your state emancipation laws before you file for it.

User Avatar

Yes, Georgia is one of the few states that has an emancipation statute that pertains to a pregnant minor.

User Avatar

That is dependent of specific state laws addressing factors related to age of consent, as well as emancipation. In the state of Texas, yes after age 16.

If both of your parents give permission, you can get married. Without their permission you will have to wait until you are both 18.

Yes, you can. Stealing is the taking of something without permission. It does not matter what relationship you have - only that it was taken without permission.
