No to both questions. First of all the age of majority in Missouri is eighteen (18). Missouri does have a juvenile code which refers to a person being at least seventeen being an "adult", that designation is for judicial proceedings only and does not change the legal age of majority of eighteen years. A minor is under the custody of their parent(s) or legal guardian until they reach the age of eighteen years, or until a MO. court rules otherwise.

The legal age to move out is 17, but you can not un enroll from school. Only the person who enrolled you can un enroll you, unless emancipated.

If you're in the US... Can you move out by yourself? No. Can you move somewhere else, such as a relative's house? Yes, but unless your parents give them some type of temporary custody they wouldn't be able to do things such as enroll you in school, seek medical treatment for you, etc.

Yes, but the child will have to enroll in, and attend school in your new location too.

No, a 16 year old is still a minor in Kentucky. Until they are the age of majority, they have to live with their parents.

That depends on the rules of your school. I expect that if you are any good as a sportsperson they would welcome you in whatever.

In the state of Missouri you CAN move out at 17 you are considered an adult!, and the juvenile court stated you can move out of state as long as you make sure the laws there are ok with it as well i am from Missouri i have 3 months till i turn 18 and i am moving out . so yes you can move out at 17 in Missouri

yes if you are under 18, and are not court ordered to be able to live on your own.

They are still a minor in Missouri. They must be an adult before they move out.

you can move out but you would have to support yourself, which you have already finished high school and im very sure you would do fine Good paying jobs are in your hands IF you have your high school diploma.

When you finish 7th grade, you enroll in 8th grade. If your teachers feel you can move up a grade, they will discuss it with your parents.

Be yourself! You will find your clique that works for you but the wrong one will come if you act stuck up or "to cool for school"

You parents could let her live there if the parents said it is okay. They would have to have guardianship over her to get her in school.

To enroll in any school you need to have your parents signature, so if your parents aren't with you you will need to have a guardian sign.

you can move out in Missouri at age 17 the parents have no say so over it you are a legal adult in Missouri at 17...i did it ..i have personal experience you don't have to wait until your 18 as long as your in Missouri

In most states, the legal age is 18. Meaning that you can sign a legally binding contract at 18 years of age. So, you should be able to move anywhere in the US at that age.

The legal age of consent in Missouri is 17 - so I would say you can move out whenever you want to.

If you are smart, don't ever move to Missouri and then you don't have to worry about it! Horrible state!

If they have permission from their parents. Otherwise, in Missouri they will have to wait until they turn 18.

The age of majority which is 18.

The legal age to move out in Missouri is not 17, it's 18, and no. I'm in KCMO. see my profile and the links below

Yes...(in Texas & Missouri... I know for sure.) A child anyone between the ages of 10 and under 17. They cannot file a missing child report because a child is from ages 10 and under 17. According to Texas and Missouri state laws, you can move out as long as you can support yourself and are attending school. Plus, you have to have transportation. I'm moving out in six months... I'm turning 17. I've done a lot of research. :-)

No , That's Just Wierd Lol , Get Yourself Someone else (Except another school teacher) School Teachers SUCK!
