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.

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.

Why do your parents need to be notified and the judge have to listen to their opinion on whether or not you can be 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.

Is it legal for parents to for their child to pay rent if they are still a minor?

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.
