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.

If a 17-year-old moves out can the parents forceably make them return home?

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.

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.

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.

Do parents legally have the right to force their pregnant child to give up a baby for adoption?

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.


In Texas if a 16 year old gets pregnant can she move out legally?

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 Texas can a child move out at 17?

Technically, you're not legally able to make that choice, but there is a loophole in Texas law. Officers can't force you to move back in with your parent/gardian unless your life is in danger or you're in a harmful environment. The officers may make you call and check in with your parents, and inform them of your whereabouts. But if your parent files a criminal complaint with the courts, you will be forced to. Also, if you move out, you must continue school.


How can you legally force your parents to allow you to move out?

Nothing, a minor cannot force his or her parents to release them from custody. A few US states have procedures for the emancipation of minors. Inn all of those states the parents of the minor have the right to contest the action if they choose and in some of those states the parents must agree to the action before a petition will be accepted by the court. You can contact the clerk of the circuit court in the county in which you for information on the emancipation of minors.
