You need to be 18 to move out without parental permission. The age of majority is actually 19 in Alabama and Nebraska, and 21 in Mississippi and Pennsylvania. In some states, such as Texas or South Carolina, there seems to be a loophole in that if a child moves out at age 17 the police will not force back home. Also, in some states if you are pregnant you can get married and if you are married you are considered emancipated. You might also be able to join the military at 17 and become emancipated.
