Is it legal in Maryland for a 17-year-old to move out if you have somewhere to live?

Generally, no. The age of majority is 18. Until you reach the

age of majority, or are otherwise legally emancipated, you need

your parents' or guardian's permission to move out. Contact a

Maryland family attorney for more information.
