In the state of Illinois how old do you have to be to move out of your parents house legally without parents permission if you are pregnant?

Becoming pregnant or having a child usually automatically

emancipates a child. You can call your local clerk of the court at

your courthouse to find specific state law. You should be aware,

though, that it costs about $20,000 a year to live decently, and

that's just above the poverty level. A minimum wage job pays about

$8,000 after taxes. That doesn't take into account a child. It's

estimated that with education costs, it takes nearly $180,000 to

raise a child to the age of 18. You may want to consider what

shelter and support you now have and use it to your benefit.
