yes legally you can move out when your 16 if you're emancipated. The state's age of legal majority is 18. The state does have a law containint custodia provisions pertaining to marriage and military enlistment. It does not have an early emancipation process. In specific cases the minor is usually made a ward of the court, appointed a legal guardian or remanded to a foster or group home until the age of majority is reached.

If your 18 years old you can move out. Even if you are still in school, you can legally move out.

In general, children under 18 or who are still in high school are not quite "people", legally speaking. They are under the care of their parents or legal guardians, who are required to provide for them and in return get to "be the boss of" them. So, if you're still in high school and your parents say you have to remain in the house, then you pretty much have to remain in the house.

Yes. You are legally an adult at the age of 18 and can move out. It doesn't matter that you're still in high school.

Being in high school or not has nothing to do with it. When you are 18 you are a legal adult and your parents no longer have legal say as to what you can or can't do.

Yes. If the 18-year-old is still in school and wants to move out, but her parents tell her she can't, by law, she has the legal right to move out.

In Kansas, an 18 year old can move out of her parents home. Even if she is still in school, when she turns 18 she is an adult.

An 18 year old can indeed move out of their parents house even if they are in high school and their parents would resist. This 18 year old is legally an adult.

You can move out of your parents' house if you get their permission to do so. Because you are still a minor, you will still require your parents' support even after moving out. Anyone under 18 cannot accrue credit in their own name, making it nearly impossible to find housing.

Yep at 18 you are adult and they are no longer responsible for you..

User Avatar

no its a parents responsiblility to keep their child under their supervtion(in the house) its the law

User Avatar

they should be able to.. 18 is when you're no longer controlled by parents last time i checked

Technically they can. My friend is 18 and in High School and was recently kicked out of his parents house. If you were emancipated, then it is legal. Since this person is 19, they are an adult, making this allowed.

User Avatar

No, he did not move out of his parent's house. He is still living with them.

User Avatar

If their parents can afford it but it is still mostly the boys that go due to the girls having to stay at home to look after the house!

User Avatar

Yes, the parents would still be responsible for her until she reaches the age 18.

i think that if you want to move out of your parents house and still keep your self in school you should be able to. i think that if you can keep your grades up and get your daploma, have a job and take care of your self you should have that right of moveing out. Plus it can help if you move out if you are in a bad situation at home.

It depends on the school district, my school district still has it, but only because it will be completely funded by parents, and not by the state.

Yes, but if the authorities find you they can take you back. But legally No you can't without parental consent.
