Best Answer

The legal age of majority in Missouri is eighteen. Missouri has a addendum to the Juvenile Court Codes which reads an "adult" is anyone who is of the age of seventeen. This law pertains to criminal court procedures ONLY and designates how a person of seventeen years should be adjudicated concerning specified criminal matters. It does not supercede the legal age of majority law.

The legal age of majority in Missouri is 18, the issue of adoption is not relevant as it has no bearing. There is a misconception in the state of Missouri because of a stipulation in the juvenile code. The JC states that a person who is at least 17-years of age is an "adult". This law relates to court proceedings only and designates the age at which the person can be tried in an adult court it does not override the state's legal age which is 18.
