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.

No, you cannot legally move out of your parents home without their permission. Once you turn 18 years old, you can move out without their permission.

If you are in High School.... NO NO NO NO But if you graduated from High School already then do what you want

It will depend on the specific laws in your state. Some require being 18 and having graduated from high school to be classified as an adult.

If you live in the US... No. Graduating high school is not an emancipating event. When you turn 18 you can move out.

Yes they can. They are out of high school. You have to have a place to live and a job though

No. The age of majority in CA. as in most of the U.S. is 18.

Graduating high school does not emancipate a minor. You can move out if your parents agree to allow it. If they don't agree, you have to wait until you turn 18.

The age of adulthood is 18 even if you have graduated. You are still a minor unless 18.

Ashley moved out to CA at age 14, after her sister graduated high school

User Avatar

That will depend on the laws in the jurisdiction in question. In most places high school is not a requirement.

User Avatar

yes No, the state's age of majority is 18, graduation from high school does not make the person emancipated unless they have received an order from the court.

User Avatar

You have to be an adult and that age will vary depending on your state or country. In most places that means 18 years old. Some also require you to have graduated high school.

There is no emancipation statute in Arizona. If you have your parents' permission, you can move out, but does not relieve them of their responsibility for your maintenance and welfare.

In Nebraska the legal age of majority is 19 so you can not move unless you have: - parental permission - married - graduated high school - get a part time job and still in school

User Avatar

User Avatar

Only if they have their parents' permission. Graduating high school does not emancipate a minor.

User Avatar

That will depend on the state you are in. Some have the age set at 17 with graduation, or 18 years old.

User Avatar

As long as your parents say it is OK then you can go. I went into the military at 17 and traveled to NC from California. Or if you are going to school then you can leave home.

The legal age of majority is 18. So, except in the rare cases where you can be emancipated earlier, you will not be able to move out without parental permission until you are 18-years-old.
