The age of majority in most states is 18, Alabama and Nebraska it is 19, and Mississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21. Some states have emancipation status contained in state law, most do not and are adjudicated on an individual basis. Contacting the clerk of the court in the country where you reside should get you the information required. Please be advised, if this is an issue of court ordered child a petition has to be made to the court to stop or modify the original support order. An emancipation decree does not automatically end child support obligations except when it pertains to specified circumstances.

I am 16 and moved out of my moms house on my own. Can I sue my father for child support?

By the guidelines of the Young Person's Guide To Public Assistance Eligibility if you are living away from your parents and are not leaning on either of them for support than you may be able to get a case. If you have declared yourself an emancipated minor then there really is no hope for any type of case. But if you are doing this because your father has not paid the child support and you are doing this to get your money that he has owed you and your mother over the years then that is a whole different story.
