Yes, the age of majority in every state is 18 or older. Parents are legally and financially responsible for a minor child until a court order such as an early emancipation decree deems otherwise. What action the parent(s) can take depends upon the laws of the state of residency, in most cases civil, criminal and juvenile codes can apply. In certain issues pertaining to a minor, the state has the option of enforcing applicable laws w/o the approval or co-operation of the minor's parent(s) or legal guardian. Some such actions could possible result in criminal charges being filed against the adult involved in the relationship.

No it is not possible to get emancipation in secret. The court will want to know how they feel about it before granting emancipation.

If they have the permission of their parents or guardians. The parents are responsible for the child. They can decide where the child lives.

Not without parents permission or emancipation by the court.

Yes, but you cannot own property without emancipation.

Emancipation laws vary by state, and not all states have an emancipation statute. You need to check the laws of the state that you reside in. You may be able to file without your parents knowing about it, but they will find out, because the court will notify them. * No. In the few US states that allow emancipation of minors, parents and all persons with "just cause" must be informed of the action and given the opportunity to contest it at the judicial hearing.

Not in most places. Until you reach the age of majority, you are the responsibility of your parents. They get to decide where you can live.

Tennessee does not have an emancipation statute. Which means no, it isn't going to happen. And one of the standard requirements to obtain emancipation in those states that do have one is that the parents have to be notifiec.

Emancipation is the act of a judge and a court. Parental approval is not necessary.

The parents do not have to consent for emancipation. However, the court will take their desires into consideration. And you have to be in a state that allows emancipation.

You can, but only if you are at the emancipation age required by your particular state.

The age at which an individual may leave their parents home without requiring their parents permission is known as the "age of emancipation." The age of emancipation varies between countries, and in the US varies between states. In most US states, the age of emancipation is 18.

If you have parents permission, you don't have emancipation cause. Emancipation means being freed from bondage or imprisonment - with permissions being given, one is certainly not being held against their will. The other view possibly here is that the parents do not want to accept responsibility for your being once you leave their home.

With parental consent, they can move out. Emancipation means the parents are no longer responsible for them.

No, you have to be 18 to move out without your parents permission unless you seek emancipation but you have to be 16 for that.
