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

Yes a child is able to move out of his/her house at the age of 17. i have asked many cops and they said that in the state of south carolina a child can move out of their house and never have to look back!

I've been in jail 4 times and every time I go they tell me that I wont be an adult untill I turn 17 I have a court date and it says that my mom has to come with me because Im under 17 so I dont know what your talking about telling people that you have to be 18 to move out of your moms house at 18 because thats not what the police are saying they are saying that we can move out at 17 in sc
