The legal age is eighteen. There are some exceptions to include Married (need parental permission), military service (need parental permission), or by court order. There may be another option, of being able to be self sufficient and able to support oneself but I do not know if that is an option in the state of Kentucky.

Seventeen is not considered an adult. Until they turn 18 the parents make the decisions. And having a child does not change the age.

A child under the age of 18 cannot move out of their parents' house without the parents' consent. They could petition the court for emancipation.

no not unless the child has been imancipated from her parents. otherwise the man can be arrested for child molestation.

When said child is at least seventeen. Parental consent is still needed, however.

Parental consent to do what? Having a child does not emancipate you--you are still a minor and therefore under the control of your parents. However, you (not your parents) do have parental rights over your own child.

If the child's parents consent to the friend's parents to be appointed the legal guardians. The friend's parents would need to consent and then be appointed by the court.

Yes, they certainly can. With parental consent, they can live anywhere. It does not relieve the parents of their responsibilities for the child.

Yes. Each sets of parents has to give consent for their child.

No. The non-custodial parent does not have the legal power to consent to the child being filmed.

With parental consent or by emancipation.

If they have been emancipated. Until the court has signed it, the parents remain responsible.

If both parents are living, you have to have the consent of both.

No. The child has 2 parents not just one so both need to give their consent.

With parental consent. You are not emancipated because you have a child.

Kentucky has no law providing for a teen to emancipate from their parents. The only way Kentucky law will allow for emancipation is if the parents petition the court, and the minor child is self sufficient.

No, they are still a minor. The parents are responsible for the child until they reach 18.

Yes but only with the parents consent.

Only with yours and the father's consent.

You have a child at 16!!??? No, until you turn 18 you need your parents consent. In Scotland you can.
