This is not legal advice and should not be relied upon as such. Consult the specific laws for the state and county in which you reside for the rules that apply. In most states, any 18 year old is considered an adult and is capable of deciding when and where they reside. They have the ability to contract for housing. SOME states allow minors to become emancipated under specific circumstances, but this is not just a matter of filling out some paperwork. A minor is the responsibility of their parents until such time as they reach the age of majority or are legally emancipated. The parents are required to provide for the support of their minor children. If the parents give permission, the minor can live in another location. Such permission does not relieve the parents of the responsibility to provide support. If the parents do not give permission, the minor can be considered a runaway. Charges may apply to individuals that aid and abet such runaways, particularly if they are under the age of consent. In some states it is my understanding that this is not enforced for 17 year olds that leave home. If you are subject to abuse, you should contact social services for your area. They will assist you in getting out of the bad environment and into a safe place.

If you have parental consent, yes. That consent does not relieve your parent of their responsibility to maintain you.

You can move out without the parents consent, but the parent may take you to court and get you back.

A 16yo can only move with parental consent.

No, she is not emancipated. She can't even move out fo the house without their consent.

Check with two places. Your county court house and his military branch. I dont know if they can marry just yet because she is a minor, as far as the military is concerned. * Any place within the state as long as both parents consent to the marriage. If one parent holds sole legal custody then the consent of the non custodial parent is not required. The parent giving consent must present proof of sole custody at the time of the license application.

Legally, they cannot live in the house without the consent of the executor of the estate.

none, just like there is nothing stopping a parent from throwing there child out of the house at age 18.

no the parent can call the cops and the child would be under house arrest if attempted a second time

If your parents both have custodial rights, then you have to have the consent of both in order to move out before reaching the age of majority (18).

Yes. if the custodial parent can not take care of the minor the non-custodial have first dibs.

You have rights regarding that they are living in your house. You set the rules or they can leave. If they pay rent the situation is different.

The age of consent varies from 16-18 so it depends where you live. But even when you are 18 it's your parents who decide if you are allowed to have sex in their house. Regardless of your age, it is still their house. And until you are emancipated they decide who you are allowed to see even though you have reached the age of consent.

{| |- | Certainly you can as long as you have the parents permission. Until they reach the age of majority the parent is responsible for the minor. But the parents can decide were the best place for a child to live is. It does not relieve them of responsibility for the child. |}

If both parents consent, yes. If the parent who currently has custody does not consent, the other parent would have to file a suit for modification of custody. The court may or may not consider the 17 year old's desires, depending on state law.

Legally, no. You are still a minor. You need to be 18 years of age to move out of your parents house. No matter who gives permission.

In different states and countries different laws apply. In the UK you are an adult at 18 and you can therefore live where ever you please without parent consent. Otherwise if you are under the legal age you have to have parental consent to live somewhere else. This of course differs if, for example, social services takes a child away. Also your friend should be happy to let you live at their house and so it is important to have their consent. But if you have both the consent of you parents/guardians and the friend you are moving in with then it is legal. Or if you are over 18 (in most States and Countries) and have the consent of your friend then it is legal.

Yes, you can sell a house without spousal consent it their name isn't on the mortgage. If their name is on the mortgage, you will need their consent.

neither house of congress may adjourn without the consent of the other house.

It may be possible with a court order and medical evidence. Check the marriage license office at the court house.

You have to be of legal age, 18, unless "if a parent them self" means something that could change that. You need to change the question so we know what you mean they did (if they did something).
