You can move out without the parents consent, but the parent may take you to court and get you back.

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

Seventeen is not yet the age of adulthood in Iowa. You cannot move without parental permission.

Not without parental consent or emancipation by the court. Having a baby does not emancipate you.

Yes, but if the authorities find you they can take you back. But legally No, you can't.

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.

Actually this might come as a surprise to you that it is against the Law to move out with or without parental consent before you are 19.

If he is legally emancipated, or both parents are deemed unfit, or if the grandparents gain legal custody, then yes.

The answer is no. It used to be that way. But the laws have changed. Your parents or legal guardians are responsible until you are legally an adult [18] or emancipated.

No. Your parents need to sign you into a school.

i have no idea, but i think you can if you get legally emancipated from your parents

As the law stands you can work in a non-skilled job from the age of 16, without your parents consent.

They can TAKE them without parent consent. As for achieving them LEGALLY it differs in some areas.

No. Pregnancy/giving birth does not emancipate a minor. You are still subject to your parents rules and authority until you turn 18.

In Minnesota, not without a court order. Until you are 18, the parents are responsible.

No to my knowledge, you have to be 18 to legally move without your parents consent.

Legally no, as the age of majority for the state is 18. What can be done in such a situation depends upon the actions of the parents, the circumstances in which the minor left the family home, and where the minor is now residing.

No, they cannot move without permission in Kentucky. Either the parents have to consent or there is a court order.

Seventeen is not yet the age of adulthood in Illinois. You cannot move without parental permission.

They certainly may not do so. Until they reach the age of majority, they are required to live where their parents say they live.
