Children and the Law
Emancipation and Ages for Moving Out

How old do you have to be to move out in Missouri if you have a very manipulative father willing to do anything that he can to keep you in his custody and you will be 17 in the next month?

Choosing to make it on your own at a young age should be a last resort. If you are in an abusive or neglectful household, something needs to be done about it and moving out might be a great option. Or, maybe you're better off in Foster Care. It's hard to say without the details of your situation.

Regardless of your personal situation -- and before you make a decision --anyone considering going out on his/her own at a young age needs to find a responsible, caring and trustworthy adult with whom you can discuss the situation and seek guidance. That person might be another family member, a school counselor, someone at your church, a bff's parent(s), etc. And if there is simply no one you can trust, look up the phone number for a "family law attorney" and call. Tell them what you need and someone will help (for free).

More comments:

To move out of your house without parental consent, your choices are limited -- but there are ways to do it legally and without risk of ending up in trouble as a "run-away".

You may have heard about becoming "emancipated" which means the court declares you to be a legal adult before you reach the age of majority. In Missouri, 18 is the age of majority. Technically, a minor can be declared emancipated in one of three ways:

1) Your parents give express consent to a court that they are waiving their parental rights;

2) Your parents are deemed to give implied consent. For example, if you've already been living on your own, supporting yourself, getting an education, and staying out of trouble -- and you're doing it on your own -- a court will likely deem that your parents consented to your emancipation by implication; or

3) There is a significant change in your social status, such as an enlistment in the military or marriage (which requires parental consent if you are 17 or younger, in most states).

You'll notice -- if you read closely -- that for the implied consent option (#2), the minor has already been living on their own. Most kids want to know how to make that happen, and, in fact, that is most often how a minor becomes emancipated. One other legal note: Most kids who move out before reaching the age of majority are never given consent, and never get a formal declaration of emancipation from the courts. They just do it.

If the other parent is not willing you have to sue for full custody and have to get a lawyer and go back to court.

Only if she is unfit or willing. Otherwise the most he can get is shared custody.

Prove to the court that you are a more fit parent. Or have her give them back if she is willing. Other than that you are not getting them back.

Cleopatra was persuasive, or manipulative, according to Plutarch, by having the ability to match her mood to the mood of whomever she was trying to influence. People were more willing to give her what she wanted if they sensed that she was a kindred soul ad had the same mindset.Cleopatra was persuasive, or manipulative, according to Plutarch, by having the ability to match her mood to the mood of whomever she was trying to influence.

Normally the child/children would become wards of the state until a suitable relative could be found who was willing to take custody of the children

It is very likely that the father could get full custody of the child. It will depend upon the history of the father and if he is willing.

If the current custodial parent is not willing to relinquish (or take), custody, then you have to retain an attorney and have it taken before a judge.

18, or have proof of a parent or legal gaurdian who is willing to sign for you.

User Avatar

You have to petition the court for it. There has to be a big change in circumstance. Neglect, abuse ect.

User Avatar

Talking to his lawyer would be the best idea. You can then return to the judge and appeal that the order is not being followed, so perhaps custody should be changed (provided you can prove that you are responsible enough).

User Avatar

that's interpretive based on evidence and how much the parent is willing ti fight for it.

Because both sides were hoping to avoid war, and were willing to compromise their positions.
