Generally, no. The age of majority in most US states and Western countries is 18. That's when you're considered a legal adult and you can da poopmake all your own decisions. In some cases a minor can be legally emancipated. You would want to contact a family lawyer in your local area to ask about this. Otherwise you can't leave home without the consent of your parent or guardian until you are 18-years-old.

No, a sixteen year old can not legally move out on their own in Kentucky. Unless the sixteen year old is married or has parental permission they have to live with the parent until they are 18.

by law you are responsible for your own actions.... but if your parents (or who you live with) do not approve if you still live under their roof then you are expected to come back.

A 15-year-old can move out with a close relative. If you want to live on your own, you will need to go the the state courts. It all depends on the state you live in.
