Moving out at 17In some states, yes, you can move out at 17. For example, Texas. But most states you have to be 18 to move out. However, if you are in a state that allows you to move out at 17 then there a rules and regulations you must follow. You cannot be moving around a lot and staying in different places. You must be able to stay in one place permanently. You must have a form of transportation, continue your education, and be able to support yourself as far as money goes.

Well I don't know how much this helps, but I am 17 years old right now and I recently moved into an apartment with my boyfriend of two years. Now, I don't know about where you live, but while still attending school, which I am, we are only allowed to work a 20 hour work week. I have not had to prove anything to anybody, I don't know if that's because my mother is okay with this and I didn't just pick up and leave, but she hadsn't had to explain anything to anybody. My boyfriend and I just decided that it was time we get a place together, as we both feel mature enough and just tired of being at home. There is lots of responsiblity, it's not just fun and games. If you feel ready and mature enough to handle living on your own, then go ahead, because I'm loving it, but keep in mind that there are bills to pay and chores to do. I've just grown beyond my years, so at seventeen, he and I are fine because we're like adults, our own little family. If your going to do this, shop around and find a good place, not more than what you can afford. Make up a budget of all of your expenses. If you need help with this, sometimes you can find some worksheets made up online. Take groceries and other necessities into consideration, you don't want to come up short and end up having to move back home, or worse, go into debt and get into some trouble. It's a lot to get into so before leaving just ask yourself if you can handle it all.

Honestly i don't think that all of that is true. ins ome states you don't have to prove anything. you can leave home at age 17 as long as you are attending school. they cant file you as a runaway.

Generally, no. The age of majority is 18 in most Western countries and most US states (in Alabama and Nebraska it is 19; in Mississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21). To move out at 17 you need parental permission or legal emancipation that recognizes you as an adult.

In the state of Missouri, 17 year olds are recognized as adults- so yes you can. There's nothing that the police can do to you unless: 1) You are on a type of probation. If you are go speak with them about you moving out. 2) If you are not mentally stable.

My advice to is get as much as you can out of your house before you are done living there. When i left my house at 17 my dad kept everything i owned and there's wasn't anything the law could do to make him give it back. My parents tried everything to make it hell for me afterwards,but keep your head up and be smart about when and why you do it.

WELL, AS FOR ME AND MY CIRCUMSTANCES I CANNOT LEAVE MY MOTHERS HOME UNTIL I GET 18 YEARS OF AGE. I AM NOT CURRENTLY IN SCHOOL, I AM PREGNANT. I AM DUE ANY DAY NOW. I HAVE 15-20 MORE CREDITS TO MAKE UP, SO I GO BACK TO SCHOOL IN JANUARY OF 2006 AS A SENIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL. I HAD TO LEAVE MY JOB THAT I HAD WITH PLENTY OF CERTIFICATES OF APPRECIATION. MY BABYS FATHER IS STILL IN THE PICTURE. HE HAS A JOB, LOOKING FOR A PLACE FOR US, BUT MY MOM WILL NOT LET ME MOVE. SHE ALWAYS USES THE POLICE TO ENFORCE WHAT SHE SAYS. TO ME, IF I AM DOING EXCELLENT IN SCHOOL, PREGNANT, HAVE LICENSE, A CAR, BANK ACCOUNT, GOING THROUGH PREGNANCY PROGRAMS THAT HELPS YOU WITH TRANSPORTATION, CHILD CARE FEES, SCHOOL FINANCES, GIVES YOU $500 DOLLARS WHEN YOU GRADUATE PLUS $100 BONUSES ON YOUR REPORT CARD, AND A SEVENTEEN TEENAGE DAUGHTER THAT IS WILLINGTO GO OUT ON HER OWN, WHY NOT LET HER GO? NOT TO FORGET, I DID IT BEFORE, BUT MY MOTEHR CALLED THE POLICE AND LIED TO THE AUTHORITIES WHEN I TOLD HER I WAS PREGNANT. PLEASE LET ME IN ON WHATEVER YOU KNOW TO HELP ME....PLEASE!!!!

hey babe... you can get married... that is your only choice.. to move out b4 18

To the smart ass girl who was saying you don't need to move out unless you can spell and you bragged about the GREAT things about you, Honey, inserence is spelled INSURANCE. So you too!!!

Ok I have a friend who is miserable at home, like me, and we need to know the legal age to move out of our parents at age 17 in Mississippi. I am 16 and have a 22 year old boyfriend. We are engaged, been together 4 HAPPY years, and doing great. Obviously you didnt have a good relationship because mine loves me. Too bad for you two. My friend is 17 and dating a 24 year old. They too are engaged and very happy. I feel sorry for those who cant say the same and think obviously bc their boyfriend cheated or whatever everyone else's is going to bc that is their personal problem. We are both very happy and just want to know when we can move out of our house.

Please answer this question for me: im a seventeen year old girl and want to know if i can move out of my parents house legally in the state of Mississippi without there permission.

ANSWER,

As far as I know you can leave home at 17,only if you are pregnant or already have a child.Any state does consider you as a adult at that time.but check your state laws to be exact.I left home when I was 17 and pregnant in Virginia back in 2008.and the law did'NT do anything about it,due to the fact that Virginia consider me as an adult,then and its still true now,Virginia still has that law.I am living with my boyfriend now who is 22 years older then me,and no I don't care about the age difference,its just a number to me,and besides we are happy,along with our baby boy Robert.I admit it was hard at first to get by,but we have pulled through.

The easiest is parental permission. Otherwise you can try to get emancipation.

The answer is yes. Legally, at 17 you may move out of your parents house in Wisconsin. (at the age of 17 with the requirements of having a place to go and a means of support being met.)

Having parental permission to move out. Until you turn 18, or are emancipated, you remain the responsibility of your parents. They determine where you can live.

You must have parental permission. Otherwise you will have to live with them until you turn 18.

All of them will allow it with parental or guardian permission. Otherwise you have to meet the age and school requirements for your state.
