The parent(s) of a minor have legal recourse to have said minor returned to their custody. Generally if the whereabouts of the minor is known, and said minor is not in an environment considered dangerous, the police will not take action until a court order is issued. When a requisition order is issued by the court the minor can be taken into custody and is generally placed in a juvenile facility until a court hearing where a judge will decide what is to be done. In all but four states the legal age of majority is 18, in Alabama and Nebraska it is 19, in Mississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21.

Can you rent an apartment on unemployment benefits?

Technically, you could pay for an apartment with unemployment benefits. However, if you are unemployed, and trying to rent an apartment, it will be very difficult for you to get approved without having a job. The apartment owners want to make sure that you have a steady income to be able to pay your rent, so they may not want to rent an apartment to someone who is unemployed.

Pug or Basset Hound for Apartment living?

The Basset hound will do okay in an apartment. They are very inactive indoors but outdoors they will run for hours in play if given the chance. They will do okay without a yard, but should be given plenty of opportunities to run and play to keep it healthy and trim. The Pug is good for apartment life. It is relatively inactive indoors and will do okay without a yard. Either of these breeds will do fine in an apartment if taken for daily walks.
