There is not such a bill being considered by the Missouri legislature to be enacted into law. Nor is there an existing Missouri statute allowing such action. The legal age of majority in Missouri is 18. Parents are responsible for their child/children until they reach said age or are married or enlist for active military duty, both of which require parental permission. Missouri does not have emancipation status for minors. The juvenile code refers to a minor being an adult at the age of 17. This is NOT the legal age of majority. The age 17 designation allows authorities to charge and prosecute minors who committ specified criminal offenses as adults rather than juveniles. The juvenile code and the legal age of majority are not synonymous.
