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.

In Alabama, an 18 year old male cannot leave home without permission and not go to jail. One has to be at least 19 years old to leave home without permission.

They certainly can if they have permission from their parents. Otherwise, they will have to wait until they turn 18 or there is a court order.

No because what if something happened to you? No one would know where you are or were.

If he is the one with primary custody or there's an agreement with your other parent, yes.

User Avatar

Not if the court has declared one the custodial parent. Until they reach adulthood, normally 18, they live where they are told to.

No, you will need the other parents and the courts permission.

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. โ€ข 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, if the relationship breaks down and one leave they still have a chance for custody depending on the circumstances and how long they are gone etc.

If without the permission of the parent or the courts.

User Avatar

you can leave home (with parents permission) at 16 so you probably can move to your other parents house. (If you wait one year then you can leave and get your own house).

User Avatar

Yes because now the permission of the other parent is not obligatory. At the most the parent which has custody of the child may require declaration before the court and seek permission for signing on VISA without obtaining the signature of the other parent.

User Avatar

They have different expressions. 'Shall I leave' is a permission where as "Should I leave" is an hesitating denial to leave that particular person.

User Avatar

No, you can't, especially if you have joint custody, that will be considered parental kidnapping.

The answer depends on the details. Married parents do not need the permission of the other parent to take the children on a vacation to another state. The situation is different if one parent wants to relocate permanently to another state with the children. You should consult with an attorney who specializes in custody issues who can review your daughter's situation and explain her rights and options.

If the guardian parent gives permission any one can watch the child for a time.

User Avatar

If both parents have custody, you need the permission of both parents.

User Avatar

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. It is also a good idea to have them carry a medical intent letter, just in case of emergancy, and a copy of the child medical insurance. Hope this helps.

No. They need the consent of the other parent or the court if the other parent objects. The court will review the situation and issue a ruling in the best interest of the child. One parent cannot interfere with the rights of the other parent..
