Absolutely, the person in question is of legal age and the parent(s) can request he/she leave the residence and they do not need a specific reason for doing so. If the adult child refuses to leave voluntarily and the parent(s) so choose they can enlist the aid of law enforcement personnel. Please be advised that the young adult does have the legal right to take such personal property as belongs to her/him, including those items which were given or assumed to be given as gifts, and/or a vehicle titled in their name only. The person must be lawfully evicted, and cannot be just thrown out.

No, they can not legally force you to give up a child for adoption and neither can they force you to have or not to have an abortion.

Yes, I believe this is the case across the U.S., except possibly Texas. Apparently in Texas the police will not force 17-year-olds to return to their parents. Another option is to get legally emancipated by a court.

no. once your pregnant ,texas see's you as an adult

Legally you can not force your child to give up the custody. They are the guardian of their child and not you, no matter how old they are.

Eighteen year-olds have reached the age of majority and are legally considered adults under the law, so parents can not legally force an 18 year-old to take a drug test. However, the situation is complicated if the 18 year-old is still living with their parents because parents can also legally force 18 year-olds out of their house.

Leave, At 16 you are legally allowed to move out. Move out and don't let them force you back Leave, At 16 you are legally allowed to move out. Move out and don't let them force you back

Yes, in Texas they can force you to go back home. If you refuse, they could send you to a detention center.

YES it aplies to all people not just adults your parents cannot legally force you to practice a religion

Well since the child is underage probably, but they really shouldn't.

No. It is against the law. I'm sure it happens in some parts of Florida, but not legally.

No, you have to have reached the age of majority which is 18. However, if you do leave they can not force you back but that is NOT the same thing as legally moving out.

Parents decide where the child will live and if they are moving they have to come with.

You can get emancipated legally. You can just move out if you want, and if your parents force you by law to stay with them you can challenge the law and bring it to court. But if you are ready to move out you should be able to explain it logically to your parents and they should understand. If not, you can explain it logically to the court.

Yes because when you turn 18 you are legally a adult and can make your own decisions

In the state of Texas your allowed to legally make decisions for yourself at 17. So your allowed to move out at 17. No you wont get arrested. No they wont force you to go back home.

I don't think so - but this is a very sensitive subject so I think you need to seek proper professional help. Also perhaps try talking to your parents if the situation allows for that. Take Care. Legally you can not force your child to give up the custody. They are the guardian of their child and not you, no matter how old they are.

You both need to be eighteen to do it wihtout permission, because then your parents can't legally force you to stop.

No. You being pregnant has nothing to do with the statute that defines you as a legal adult at 17. You can be forced to move back in with your parents at 16, but it most likely won't be ordered since you are so close to 17, and pregnant. So legally, no you cannot move out. In practice, go ahead - I doubt any judge would force you back home.

It's probably impossible legally to force your parents to divorce. Things sound pretty bad at home if you are thinking like that, so try to get some help from a social worker, priest, or a family friend.

In most places your parents can call the police, have you picked up as a runaway, and force you to return home. In a few states, such as Texas, a 17-year-old won't generally be returned by force if they are able to take care of themselves.

They are the elite force of the texas sate troopers

No. Its like saying do parents force boys to wear underwear?
