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.

You are legally considered an adult at eighteen years of age. So yes, you could legally move out.

You must be an adult to move out. In Kentucky that means 18 years old.

No, at the age of 18 you can move out of your parents home legally. There is nothing they can do.

Simply move out. Seventeen year olds are not typically viewed as run-aways.

No, the legal age of majority for the state is eighteen (18). Kentucky does not have an emancipation status.

No, a sixteen year old can not legally move out on their own in Kentucky. Unless the sixteen year old is married or has parental permission they have to live with the parent until they are 18.

No, they cannot move without permission in Kentucky. Either the parents have to consent or there is a court order.

In Kentucky, seventeen is not the same age as eighteen. Until you are an adult, the law says the parents are responsible for the minor and where they live.

Kentucky does not have an emancipation statute. A person under the age of 18 can not legally emancipate himself from his parents. But - with the parents consent and a judge's approval in court, you can become emancipated in Kentucky. Actually there r additions to KRS 405 that allow for emancipation in Kentucky:

When? at what age? At 18 you are an adult and can legally move. Until then you are a minor.

No, you can not run away in Kentucky at the age of 17. You can legally leave home in Kentucky at the age of 18.

Legally speaking, adultery in Kentucky is not a factor when two people are filing for divorce. This is because Kentucky is considered to be a no-fault state.

No, you need to be 18 or emancipated to legally move out. Or have your parent's permission.
