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.
Yes you can get emancipated at seventeen but there is always paperwork that needs to be signed by both you and your parents/guardian. There has to be a reason for your emancipation.
Her parents are always fighting.
If you're in the US, emancipation is always from both parents. It is not possible to be emancipated from just one. Of course, emancipation is rarely granted, because most minors don't even come close to meeting the requirements for it.
comfort him and tell him its gonna be ok and that youll always be there for him
Yes and no.If your parents love each other they can work it out.If they don't really care for each other they will break up.
I would say no. I think most states would consider you emancipated at 18, or 21. You can always join the military I guess. That will get you out of your parents house.
Can you support yourself? Do you earn about 2500 a month net? Can you afford a lawyer and court costs? To become emancipated you have to file court papers and go before a judge to prove you can support yourself, pay the rent, buy food, and do all the things that people do to live on their own. The judge will decide through what you present to him if you are able to do this. I suggest you get counseling for your problems with your parents. Start at high school and they can refer you to other people or agencies.
What are they always fighting for "POWER"
He said since he's five he's already drinking coffee and drank a LOT in Tokio Hotel TV. But his parents always put a lot of milk in them, because they think coffee isn't really good for kids. But that's what he always do. :)
In Michigan, a minor must live with their parents or guardians until they are 18 years of age. A minor can always hire an attorney and try to get emancipated.
Being emancipated means that you can support yourself, you already live on your own or that there are problems arising in your house. Your parents get to listen so that they can make the final deicison in the end. If the judge finds the house stable, then it is up to the parents to decide if the emanicaption should take place. They have to sign papers stating they will not claim you on there taxes, and that your no longer their responsibility. If the judge thinks the emanicipation should take place, the parents still have to sign papers. The judge will always talk to your parents first, find out whats going on in your life and theres.
No ... there's always the couch in the living room. There must be underlying reasons why the parents opted for the sister's family to occupy one of the bedrooms. Perhaps this is just temporary and you will get your room back again.
Yes marriage always emancipate you.
you tell her you the reason you didn't do it or finish it is because your parents are always fighting and argueing at home. i should know I've done it and succeeded
No he isn't.
the parents are always worried about them
As long as the child is a minor it's the parents duty to pay for the expenses. If the child is emancipated it has to pay for itself. If the child wanted to move out of the family home and the parents gave permission they have the right to expect rent if the place belong to them. There's always the option of moving back home where no rent is expected.
Absolutely. Though it's not "essential" to a healthy life, sneaking beer is normal. Kids generally want to try what their parents are always drinking.
not good with his father because he was always drinking and never had that much intrest in him unless it was about music and he was quite very close to him mother he called her his friend
I can answer this because my parent do too! Either sit down and tell them "Mom Dad can you please stop fighting it is making me sad." or you could just leave them and let them discuss their problems without you even getting involved. You must choose!
because they are always fighting
The parents who are narrow minded & who always oppose their child's dreams are donkey parents. All parents love their child, but if parents will give respect to child then child will always give them respect.
Binge drinking always helps.
if you are always fighting get out its not fair on the children
Answer--UNTIL you are 18 and graduated high school (unless otherwise emancipated) your parents both of them are always responsible for your billstheirs, unless you did something stupid to get there, and they're teaching you a lesson.
