In most states you can leave the family home and parental custody when you reach the age of 18. In Alabama and Nebraska the legal age of majority is 19, and in Mississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21.

South Carolina's legal age of majority is eighteen. But, if you choose to move out at 17, the cops or your parents can't do anything to stop you. You're not considered a run away or anything. But, if you get in any trouble with the law, your parents are still legally responsible for you. And they cannot kick you out. That's considered neglect. And if, at any time before you turn 18, you decide to go back to their house, they have to let you.

Do you need the father's permission to take a child out state if he has not established his paternity?

If the parents are unmarried and the father has not established his paternity legally- no. However, if the move will be permanent the father can request an emergency injunction to stop the move if he objects to it. That will give him time to establish his paternity, establish parental rights and request a visitation schedule. The court will also establish a child support order.If the parents are unmarried and the father has not established his paternity legally- no.

You can't be emancipated from a state. If you live in Utah, you are a Utah resident. If you don't want to be a Utah resident, you'll have to move to another state. You can be emancipated from your parents in Utah - however, if you are 18 this is not necessary. Just by turning 18 you are legally an adult and your parents do not have legal ward over you. Get a job, move out - they cant stop you.
