This is not legal advice and should not be relied upon as such. Consult the specific laws for the state and county in which you reside for the rules that apply. In most states, any 18 year old is considered an adult and is capable of deciding when and where they reside. They have the ability to contract for housing. SOME states allow minors to become emancipated under specific circumstances, but this is not just a matter of filling out some paperwork. A minor is the responsibility of their parents until such time as they reach the age of majority or are legally emancipated. The parents are required to provide for the support of their minor children. If the parents give permission, the minor can live in another location. Such permission does not relieve the parents of the responsibility to provide support. If the parents do not give permission, the minor can be considered a runaway. Charges may apply to individuals that aid and abet such runaways, particularly if they are under the age of consent. In some states it is my understanding that this is not enforced for 17 year olds that leave home. If you are subject to abuse, you should contact social services for your area. They will assist you in getting out of the bad environment and into a safe place.
you can get arrested and they will put you into a foster home. but once you are 18 then you can move.
sure just make sure its alright with him
no as your still to young to live somewhere without your parents consent.
Is it illegal to move out your house at seventeen
He was seventeen.
Talk to a school counselor or understanding adult. There's "hitting" and there's hitting.
Yes, he died.
Not unless you are legally emancipated.
seveteen years old,moved in with my boyfriend,his mom's house,am I breaking the law? can my mom make me move back home?I live in Missouri
A 17-year-old is a minor and therefore subject to the control and authority of their parents. So, no, you can't just decide on your own to move out. You can move out at 17 if you have parental permission or if you've been emancipated.
Not as a custodial parent, but as a guardian of a child in need.
Technically no, If you have a mom... and a have evidence that he is abusing you.. and if you'r mom agrees to take you... yes, it is alright. If you don't have a mom... you would have to contact social services w/o your dad knowing.... good luck... ;) sweetie
If the father has legal custody the child should live with him. What does the custody agreement say?
if you love your boyfriend and your mom you know what to do
Yes, in Georgia you can leave home at 17 (because you can go to jail at that age), and you will not get in trouble and cannot be forced to return, but you can't be kicked out until age 18.
Probably in a lot of states, but the only one I personally know of myself is Georgia. You cannot be kicked out until age 18, but if you leave at 17, the police cannot force you to go home.
Yes, you can. Georgia is a strange state. You cannot be kicked out until the age of majority (18), but a child can leave at age 17, and the police will not force the child back home or treat him/her as a runaway.
can a teen move out at seventeen?
We are sorry, but next year, you can move out.
You need parental consent to move until you are 18.
His father died when Confucius was three, and his mom died when he was seventeen.
