Best Answer

Yes. Parents have the option to petition the court to be relieved of their parental obligation if they are unable to control the minor's behavior and/or the minor is creating a hostile or dangerous environment for other family members.

Unless the 14 year old has been emancipated, which is every unlikely, the 14 year old is required to do whatever the parents want them to do. If the parents give permission for her to move, then she may do so. However, without her parents' permission, she would be considered a "Runaway", and the police may escort her home and potentially charge her with status offenses.

Generally, unless the minor is in actual physical danger, minors can't move out without the permission of either their parents or legal guardians or a court. Can you petition a court for permission? Sure. Can you just do it on your own? Heck no, and if you try it and your parents feel like being nasty about it they could even get the other family member in trouble.

You may be able to petition a court to be 'emancipated'. That is a legal term which means that the court recognizes you as an adult. If you are an adult, your parents' permission to do anything is no longer necessary. You would need to check with a local attorney who specializes in family law to find out if you qualify.
