You can leave your home at the age of 18 without parent consent or guardian consent. You have to be emancipated and/or have a child to live on your own. you also have to show the court that you are able to support yourself. The legal age of majority in most states is 18. In Alabama and Nebraska it is 19, in Mississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21. Pregnancy or having a child does not automatically confer emancipation status on a minor.

Age of majority - 18. Can also leave home at the age of 16 but must be able to financially take care of yourself. Can go to court and become an emancipated minor at age 16

In Canada, the age that a child/youth can leave home varies from province to province. In Ontario a youth can leave home, without parental permission, at the age of 16.

The age of majority is 19 in NS but you can leave or be kicked out and be on your own from the age of 16. Under 16 they will have to bring you back home.

From what i know you're allowed to leave home at the age of 16 as long as you both have parental consent..I want to move out next year (i'll be 16 then) but my parents dont want me to so i can't go as its law for me to have consent..i can;t just leave without their permission..it sucks!

18 when you are an adult. At 16 you are still a minor.

A person can legally leave home at 16 years old with the parent assent or by himself at the age of 18 years old.

I think 16 is the age you can leave your child home alone depending on how long you are gone for if it is a few days then 16 or 18 for definite.

No you have to be 18 or emancipated by the court or have parental permission.

I believe you have to be 16 to leave home in the UK. At 16 you are no longer considered a dependent and can rightfully move away from home. If it is voluntary, in most circumstances you can leave home without the consent of your parents or anyone with parental responsibility when you are 16, as long as you have evidence that you will be able to financially support yourself and will not be in danger.

At 16 years of age they can apply to the court for emancipation, however to leave on their own, they must be 18.
