A 17-year-old is a minor and cannot legally move out without parental permission unless they have been emancipated in some manner.

Depends on the state of residence. Laws vary from state to state. If the legal age of consent is 16, yes.

User Avatar

No, the age of majority and the age of consent for the state is 18. That being the case, the minor female could not legally move in with the adult male whether or not her parents consented to the act.

Normally a criminal from one state can not legally hide out in another state.

This question's answer varies from state to state. Each state has a minimum age of consent, when an individual is considered an adult in matters of sexual relations. However, it might also be wise to research the topic of emancipation, which is when a minor declares him or herself legally separated from his or her parents. Again, that age will vary from state to state as well. Any clerk of the court or someone in the state attorney's office can probably offer state-specific information.

It is not illegal to live with your boyfriend, but you would need your parents' permission and your boyfriend's parents. A minor can only choose where to live if they are legally emancipated. Also, if your parents do not want you and your baby to live with them, they are legally required to make other arrangements, because they are responsible for you until you are 18 regardless of their wishes. You could, however, become a ward of the state where you reside, or become legally emancipated.

If you're legally able to be married, then you can do it in another state. Going to another state doesn't enable you to legally get married again without having your first marriage legally dissolved, though.
