The age of majority in all but four states is 18, in Alabama and Nebraska it is 19, in Mississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21. What action can be taken if a minor leaves home w/o parental permission depends on what actions the parents choose to take and how authorities decide to resolve the situation according to the laws of the state.

With parental consent, it's around 13 or 14, I think. Without parental consent, it's 18 (with an ID or something, to prove your 18).

Most places 18+ - some allow parental consent... Your legal guardian must be with you and have legal documents (birth certificate and license) to prove relationship

Depends... Only some tattoo parlors allow parental consent. Your legal guardian must be with you along with the legal documents (birth certificate and license) to prove your relationship..... otherwise you have to be 18

No, not unless the grandmother obtains legal custody through the court, and in order to do that she would have to prove that the parents are unfit.

Not with the child unless he has sole legal and physical custody and the mother has no parental rights (and he can prove it with a court order). He cannot deprive the mother of her child without legal authority. He needs consent of the mother and the court with jurisdiction over the child.

Most places 18+ ... some will allow you to have parental consent. Your legal guardian must be with you at that time with legal documents to prove your relationshipDepends on state laws. Most of the time its 18 years of age.

If you have consent from your legal guardian & the legal documents to prove your relationship

Maryland may issue a marriage license in the case of pregnancy. You would have to check with your local licensing office for the requirements necessary to prove it. Otherwise you need parental consent.

As long as they have parental consent, a 16 year old can live where they want. However, it does not mean the parents have no responsibility for the welfare of the child.

It depends on the state you live in. In North Carolina you must be 18 to marry without parental consent and have to bring a birth certificate to prove your age. You can not be married if you're under 16 unless you have a court order in NC> 18

Yes if you have parental consent, if you dont have your parents behind you you can go get an amancipation from the courts, but you have to prove you can make it with your fiance.

18 in every state except Mississippi, where it is 21. Most states will let you get married at 16 or 17 with the consent of both parents or a legal guardian. Several (mostly Southern) will let you get married as young as 16 without parental consent, but you must prove that you or your wife is either pregnant or that you already have a child together. Under extraordinary circumstances, you can get married as young as 14 in some states with both parental AND court approval, but I wouldn't count on this.

No there is not. It is possible in a few without parental consent but you have to see the court and prove pregnancy and explain why you want to get married so young. Marriage emancipates you so they are not that keen on letting a 15yo parent-to-be be all on her own.

No that cannot be approved without parental consent because you are a minor and he is an adult. If your parents say that its alright to move in with him, then you have to get your parents to sign a legal document stating that he is your new guardian. Also he has to prove that he has a job, home, and make sure you stay in school.

It will depend on the licensing requirements for your location and may be affected by a custody order. And if you are 18 or older, you don't need their consent. Contact your local licensing office, normally in the county courthouse. They will tell you what you need to have and how to prove it.

The mother. The father have to prove paternity by a DNA test and can then get his parental rights and petition for custody, visitation and pay child support.

To prove that you gave permission.

Well, in Florida, you have to be 18 to get a tattoo without parental consent, but if you take a parent with you, you can be pretty much any age. They will need to bring your birth certificate and they will need to bring their I.D. to prove that they really are related to you.

if she is pregnant or can prove she has a living child she may get married without parental consent or if she can claim independent student status she may get married.

Check the laws of your state. I believe, in some states, that parental consent is a requirement, while in other states it's not (as long as you meet all of the other requirements and can prove to the court that emancipation is truly in your best interest/there is a legitimate reason that it would be better for you to be emancipated).

Parental consent is not a requirement for emancipation in Oregon, but it is a factor that the court considers when deciding rather or not to grant emancipation. You would have to prove to the court that there is a legitimate reason that emancipation is truly in your best interest.

If you were not married when the child arrived the legal custody lies with the mother. The father have to prove paternity in court before he can get his parental rights.

Yes, a 17 year old can file to be emancipated without parental consent. The minor must prove understanding of emancipation and that they can support themselves.

If you are, or were, under the age of consent when you were being abused, all you have to do is go to the police. Keep any evidence, or witnesses in case you have to prove something. The police should follow this up very quickly If you were over the age of consent, then you have to be able to prove you were being abused. You will need to talk to a lawyer for advice. If you can't afford a lawyer there may be a Legal Aid Office or something similar you can go to to get advice or referral.
