if your teen has run a way so to speak and will not return you can file a runa way report- it will undo your responsbilty if anything goes wrong-

of course maybe a bit of couseling could help even better- life is to short and teenagers have a tough time unlike the old days-find out the source of the problem before you get in to deep

Whose home are you wanting to move to? If you want to move in with a friend or a relative, then your parents would have to agree to allow it.

How old do you have to be to move in with a different parent?

You must be sixteen to move in with a different parent, but only if you can prove to the courts that the parent you want to move in with is able to take care of you, and has a stable home for you to live in. Custody laws are enacted by states. If there is not a court order forbidding such action, the only thing needed is the consent of the custodial parent. Age is irrelevant. However, if a child support order is in effect it will need to be modified.

Can you move from one parents house to the other parents house at age 16?

my boys want to move in with me and I was told that at the age of 13 that they have the right to choose who they want to live with, now if the parent that you live wants to fight it you can go to court over it, but they can stop it unless it was already ordered by the court that you reside with the parent you live with now, or the parent you live with now shows the court that that the other parent you want to move in with is on drugs, no stable home, no steady job, those type of things.......other than that they might as well let you go,because its going to be a waste of time and money going to court if the otherparent you want to live with is outstanding

To me, I don't think that is fair. Once you reach a certain age (13) you should be able to choose who you want to live with, Mom or Dad. You do have a choice, and if you really want to, tell your parent.
