The age of majority for the state is eighteen (18). However, the state does have specific emancipation laws pertaining to persons who have reached the age of sixteen and meet all the requirements. RCW-Juvenile Code Title 13. Sect: 13-64.

No they cannot. The age of majority in Washington is 18. Until then you are the responsibility of your parents. They determine where you live and much of what you can do.

Doesn't work that way in Washington. You have to be the age of majority, 18, before you can move out unless you have their permission or are emancipated.

no you have to be 18. when you're 17 you are still under your parents control. 18 you're free to do whatever you choose.

Yes. If the 18-year-old is still in school and wants to move out, but her parents tell her she can't, by law, she has the legal right to move out.

What they have bought themselves or given as a gift and of course whatever the parents allow them to.

No. You have to be 18 to move out from your parents house. At 18 you are an adult.

That would be the age of majority. That is 18 in Washington.

Certainly, as long as you have parental permission. Until you turn 18, or are emancipated, you remain the responsibility of your parents. They determine where you can live.

The legal age for a child to move out from their parents is 18 in the state of Florida. However, this can happen earlier if a child is emancipated by the courts.

Each state has a minimum age at which a child can be emancipated. In Washington state, you can be declared an adult at age 16 but you must prove you can support and care for yourself.

In Washington you are not an adult until 18. If the parents give you permission, otherwise you have to wait until you are an adult at 18.
