It depends upon how "leave home" is defined and what sort of custodial rights each parent has. A parent can give temporary custody (3 months or less) of their minor child/children. to another qualified adult. There are however, several guidelines that must be followed to assure that state social services will not find it necessary to intervene. Other than the above mentioned situation a parent cannot simply tell the minor child it is alright to go out on their own. Parents are financially and legally responsible for their child/children until they reach the state age of majority or until a court of law rules otherwise.

By 'a parent's permission' do you mean that you only have *one* of your parents permission? If that's the case then it depends on where you live. In many states, if the parents have equal custody then the permission of *both* is required.

Does the non-custodial parent need permission to leave the country?

By law, you must both go up to the location where they will issue a passport and both parents must sign a statement saying it is okay. If you have documentation that shows you are the custodial parent, you can have your child "red flagged" with the government and this way if he were to try to get a passport for your child they would have to notify you and then you can stop it. In the US the non-custodial parent can leave if they choose, they cannot however take a minor child with them unless a court rules otherwise. • This depends on your custody agreement, but I'm fairly certain a non-custodial parent needs permission. Just like a custodial parent will need permission depending on what the custody agreement states. I do know, however, that a custodial parent can get a passport without the permission of the non-custodial parent if he/she meets certain requirements. is that parent's name the only one on the birth cirtificate? Does that parent have sole LEGAL custody?

Yes... this also applies to one parent taking a child abroad. For example, the Mother wants to leave a few days ahead of the Father to get a jump start on a school holiday, the Father must give written permission for the minor child to leave the USA without him. As the grandparents... both parent must give written permission.
