In Alabama they must have reached the age of majority. Otherwise they need to wait until they turn 18. If they are being abused, the court will move them to a foster home.

can the court make a 15 year old move back into an abusive household?


They cannot move out legally. If she is abusive, she can apply to the court for emancipation or to be moved to foster care.


It depends about the circumstances. If it is proved that the home is abusive then no, but if not then they may.

Only if the parents consent and they are going to another good home (i.e., living with a relative). The 14 year old could also move out if they had abusive parents, in which case they would have to go to an orphanage, foster home or relative until they were 18.


No, the age of majority is 19 in Alabama.


No but 17 year olds and up can. You are considered an adult in alabama if pregnant.


Not without the intervention of a court or child services division. Her brother would need to be given legal custody.


Only with parental permission. Pregnancy only get you medical emancipation regarding you and your child.


It depends upon the circumstances of the individual. The age of majority for Alabama is 19, therefore it would not be strictly legal, but if the parents did not object to the move authorities would not intervene.



Get a Protection from Abuse Order and have her evicted. Simple as that!


The age of majority in Alabama is 19. You can move out at 18 with your parents' permission. That does not mean you are emancipated, or that they are relieved of the responsibility of taking care of you. You can, with your parent's permission, request emancipation from the court which 'relieves you from the disability of nonage.' *A legally married minor is considered to be automatically emancipated.


No, for technically they are still a minor and under the custody of his or her parents. The person must wait until they are 19 or they can seek early emancipation from age 18 in Alabama (the age of majority is 19 there).


Move to a place that can get you married or if Alabama does this. Just fricking get married. Good luck with the wedding.


If the minor tells the police about the abuse, then they won't put you back in that home. You only have a year until you are of legal age, chances are that your mom won't fight this because you could press charges for abuse if you wanted. The legal age of majority with the exception of four states is 18. In Alabama and Nebraska it is 19, in Mississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21.


The legal age of majority with the exception of four states is 18. In Alabama and Nebraska it is 19, in Mississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21. Your parents can call the police and have you brought home if you just leave.


It verys from state to state in the US but in Alabama the parent can not force them to move back in.



The only way a 17 year old can move out on their own is to get legally emancipated. If the minor attempts to move out without emancipation, they can be charged as a runaway.


That is something they cannot do. They have to have consent or be 18.


Yes, you can certainly let them live where you wish. You are still responsible for the child.


Sure as long as you can prove the abuse and the parents give up rights of guardianship to the other relatives.


I think its a consideration, but the law wont approve it because you are still 17, they would consider you to be in a foster home. But then again, you are going to be 18, then its legal.
