Dude, please. I'm sorry to say this, but you've got 2 scenarios: One: Your parents have a really good reason to not let you out. Maybe you got a problem or something, but i dont think parents wont let their kids out when they are old enough. You should respect their wishes in this case, and if you dont think you have a problem, talk it out with them. Two: Well, if the previous paragraph didn't help.... Your parents are freakishly obsessive! Damn! Just run away, because if they dont have a reason to do something like this.... Their not worth your time. Sorry to break it to you..... Good luck brother BurnSheepy First and foremost, the minimum age of majority in any state is 18, in Nebraska and Alabama it is 19 in Mississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21. Parents are legally and financially responsible for their child until said person reaches the state legal age. No intelligent individual knowing they can be placed in financial and legal jeopardy would allow a minor to simply leave the family home. Some states allow for early emancipation if the minor qualifies under the specified requirements of the law(s). Consulting the laws of your state of residency pertaining to emancipation; (sometimes referred to as "Relief of Disability of Age of a Minor" or something similar) can provide you with more specific information.

Probably. It can depend on circumstances and state law, but if you moved out, you're out.

That might not be the best idea. Your parents have a reason to not want you to move in with him/her.

A 15-year-old is a minor and therefore cannot move out of their home without parental consent. If your parents truly are refusing to let you go to school, then it needs to be reported, because in Iowa you HAVE to attend school until you're 16. Now, if they're homeschooling you, then you are attending school (although it might not be the school that you want to attend).

Parents can allow their children to move out at any age.

If he lives with his parents then no you can't. It's their house their rules. The only way that you can move in with him is to either move into a different house together or have him move in with you. But then again it all has to do with his parents who have to let him move in with you.

Yes, but you wouldn't function in the world.

ONLY if your parents let you but in most states you have to be 18 to move out because when you 18 you are legally an adult

i think the parent has to let a child live at home until they are 18 unless they both agree the child can move out

No, unless the child is legally handicapped, the parents are only responsible for the child's welfare up to the age of 18. If the parents refuse to care for a child under the age of 18, they may be arrested for child neglect.

The legal age to move out without parental consent in Ontario is 16 years of age, as well as it's the legal age to kick your child out of your house. If a 16 year old chooses to leave, they have the right to bring their personal belongings and if your parents refuse to let you bring them, you can be escorted to your house by a police officer, who will help you retrieve them.

Tell your parents directly, use sensitivity, be patient and let them process it in their own time. Parents will respect you if you come to them first. A parent's place is to raise you to this point of maturation whereby you move out on your own and become an adult.

that's if your parents will let you and they don't say anything

Yes. Parents cannot terminate their obligations until the age of majority (18).
