moving outyou have to be 18 to move out regardless unless you are emancipated or in a state which allows you to move out at 17. having your GED has nothing to do with it.

The age of emancipation in most cases is 18. Having a GED is not a contributing factor. If the situation warrants it parents can request the juvenile court to place the teen/child in a contained environment Not juvenile detention, but a group home or something similar.

In Texas at the age of !7 if you have your GED you can

Emancipation is 16 to 17 years old in the state of Texas. Texas does not have emancipation they have disability removal of minorities for a minor.

As soon as you are 18 you can move out whether you are still in high school, have a GED, or have graduated. Once you are 18 you are a legal adult and you can do whatever you want, living arrangement-wise. Your parents can also kick you out when you are 18 because they no longer have to do anything for you, insurance, car, money, anything.

No. Earning a GED does not give a minor any adult rights. The minor is still subject to the control and supervision of their parents until they turn 18.

You can do anything you want. GED does not stop you from doing anything A GED (General Equivalency Dipoloma) is as good as a high school diploma, so anything you can do with a high school diploma that can be done with a GED, including going to college.
