The legal age of majority in Maine is 18. The issue of running away is not subject to discussion. If the minor is in an neglectful or abusive situation they should contact Maine Department of Human Services Hotline at 1-800-452-1999, (available 24 hrs, seven days a week). Or National Child Abuse Hotline 1-800-392-3738, Youth Crisis Hotline 1-800-448-4463, Youth Emergency Services Hotline, 1-800-899-5437. If the person believes themselves to be in physical danger they should contact the local police or 911 for immediate assistance. The minor might consider discussing the problem with teens who help teens, all information is kept confidential, http://www.teenlineonline.org. The legal age of majority for the state is 18. However, when the court appoints a legal guardian the terms of the guardianship order is what designates the age at which the ward becomes an adult. Generally it will be the state's age of majority but not always. In addition in some cases it is necessary for a release of guardianship to be granted before the ward is declared of legal age.

No you can not move out in Maine at 14 years as you have just stepped into your teens and your boyfriend is also a teenager and is 17 years.This is dangerous.

Legally a 17 year old cannot leave home in Maine. Until they turn 18, the parents are responsible for them and decide where they can live.

With their parent's permission. Otherwise they will have to wait until they are an adult.

Yes. An emancipated minor is a legal adult and is responsible for him/herself completely, including the choice to move out of state.

really you can be any age, but you should wait until you are at least 18

No, the age of majority is 18 in Maine, not 17. Until then the parents are responsible for the minor.

You have to be of legal age just like before you had a baby. Having a baby makes no difference.

With her parents' permission, certainly. Without her parents' permission she can apply to the court for emancipation and, if granted, then be able to move out.

As both Maine and Alaska are U.S. States, you do not need a passport to get there.

== == It is not illegal to date in Maine. It is not even illegal for them to have sex, as the age of consent in Maine is 16. I hope not!
