The information I found shows that a child must either reach 19 years of age, or have a high school degree, in order to be considered at the age of majority. The legal age of majority for Virginia is 18. If the person turns 18 before graduating from high school he or she must finish high school as required under the state's compulsory education law or have parental consent to drop out.

No a 16 year old can not legally move out of their parents house, even if they have permission. A 16 year old is still considered a minor and would need to be emancipated to legally move.

I say why not if there is a reason but if you just want to for fun than don't do it.:)

A 17-year-old is not a woman, she is a minor, and therefore, no, she cannot move out without her parents permission unless she has been legally emancipated.

No. At 17 you are still a minor. The 20 year old is an adult and can be charged with rape of a minor. You will not be an adult until 18.

Not legally, as the legal age of majority for the state is 18.

You have to reach the age of majority. In most places, including West Virginia, that means you have to be at least 18 years of age. Until then, your parents are responsible for you financially.
