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.
