No, not in the legal interpretation of the law, the age of majority in all states except four is 18. In Alabama and Nebraska the legal age of majority is 19, in Mississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21. Parents and state authorities retain the legal option of controlling minors, including the minor's place of residence. If the parent(s) do not object to the move, it is unlikely there any problems would arise concerning the age issue especially since it involves an another adult family member.
