Emancipation and Ages for Moving Out
High School

If you are 18 and in high school but do not live with your parents or have legal guardians is it true when your school tells you you cannot legally write yourself excuse notes for lateness?

It would not be a legal issue but the policy of the school district. The person should give the situation a little thought and they will realize the absurdity of a student being allowed to write their own excuses for being absent or tardy. Since the student is not in the custody of a parent or legal guardian, he or she will have to bear the consequences of the cited incident and all their actions. It's not the most pleasant part of being an "adult" but it is a reality.

Yes. Getting married legally emancipates you from your guardians.

No, the child's under-age parents are the legal guardians of the child.

If you are legally 'emancipated' from your parents/guardians yes, however for others, the legal 'age of majority' is 19 years of age.

User Avatar

No. Legally, your parents are your guardians and responsible for you and your actions until your reach the age of adulthood in your jurisdiction.

If you are not yet at the age of emancipation in your state, and/or have not been emancipated by court action, you could be forced to return to your parents/guardians home. Your parents/guardians are STILL legally responsible for everything you do and your actions even if you move out.

User Avatar

yes because if you have done it through court they are still your guardians

No, minors are legally incapable of entering into lawful contracts, but their parents/guardians can, on their behalf.

Having a child does not making you legally an adult. Your parents are your guardians and you are the guardian of your baby. In the US, you become an adult at 18.

User Avatar

Until age 18, parents or guardians have discretion in determining appropriate child care.

User Avatar

Yes, legally at 16 if you can support yourself.

User Avatar

no, 18 is the age (when u become an adult) that your parents and guardians are no longer responsible.

User Avatar

At 16 assuming you have a good place to move to and take care of yourself and don't party too much or do anything criminal and stick to school/work. In that case your parents can force you to come back.

User Avatar

Only with permission of the parents or guardians. Until they become an adult, the parents get to decide where they live. That means age 18 in most places.

Minors cannot legally contract for a debt. Only their parents/guardians can assume that responsibility. So, your parents ARE responsible. On the other hand, if you are legally an adult and contract for debt - and your parents 'assume' responsibility for it -there would have to be legally binding paperwork naming them as the debtors in lieu. Simply giving their word is not sufficient, and you would remain responsible.

I suppose you could... it depends on if you are... you know... in love or anything like that... "friend" can be used to get out of a lot of situations like that... It depends on your friend's living situation... and yours. If you are being abused or not loved by your parents (or no parents at all and no legal guardians to care for you), then its okay... there has to be a reason. Parents or guardians are legally responsible for you until you are of legal age in your State, so unless your parents or guardians have given their permission, they can refuse to allow it.

The answer is no. It used to be that way. But the laws have changed. Your parents or legal guardians are responsible until you are legally an adult [18] or emancipated.

User Avatar

You can't legally live on your own. You are not able to contract for a place to live. Until you reach the age of majority, you are dependent on parents or guardians.

User Avatar

If you are a juvenile and they are your rightful guardians, yes, they may violate your privacy for almost any reason and be legally justified in doing so.

User Avatar

it matters how old u are but i do let my guardians know

User Avatar

Well... legally no. You could run away but then get in trouble with the police. Your parents or legal guardian can file you as a runaway and they may go searching for you. If you want to leave your parents/Guardians house you could get emancipated.

Well, for starters, a 16 year old is not legally able to enter a legal bunding contract for a house, which means your unable to live by yourself. You need proof of neglect, to show the court your reason for filing an emancipation, or, your parents give concent. You have to support yourself with your own money, and parents are not legally obliged to pay for anything. Basically an Emancipation is where you are "divorcing" your parents.

Technically there is nothing wrong with it legally or morally, in and of itself. However, some people might not see it that way.

User Avatar

Yes. A 17 year old is still a minor and the parents or guardians are responsible for his/her actions.

User Avatar

Your parents or legal guardians can request one for you. As a minor, you can't get one yourself as you don't have the legal authority to accept the contract terms.
