I found this answer on a child custody website. It states that the legal age is 17, because of a loophole in the MO law.
There is not such a thing as a "loophole" in the age of majority law for Missouri, the age is 18.
The citing of a 17-year-old being an adult is contained in the juvenile code and it designates the age at which a minor can be charged as an adult and tried in an adult court.
There have been cases where custodial and child support issues have been disputed based on the juvenile code, such cases are dismissed for lack of merit.
The juvenile code is a completely separate issue and does not supercede the age of majority of 18.
This is Legal in your home, with your parent or guardian ONLY
Not unless you've been emancipated. Having a child does not emancipate a minor.
The legal age of majority in Missouri is 18, the issue of adoption is not relevant as it has no bearing. There is a misconception in the state of Missouri because of a stipulation in the juvenile code. The JC states that a person who is at least 17-years of age is an "adult". This law relates to court proceedings only and designates the age at which the person can be tried in an adult court it does not override the state's legal age which is 18.
no it is not crime
yes, actually. in the Midwest it is legal to leave home and start your career when you're 16.
You have to first be emancipated by law.
There is no legal minimum age in which a child can be left home alone overnight in Missouri. However it is never recommended that a child younger than age 12 be left home alone at all.
There is no legal age to "run away from home." You can leave home at 18 when you become an adult otherwise it is illegal to "run away" ( that's why it is called "running away.")
Yep The 17 year old can be killed in missouri P.S. I love women
Here in the state of Missouri if the pregnant women wants to leave her home , then she should be 21 years or more.
You may move out at legal age of adulthood which is 18, or at 16 with your parents consent.
They will return them to their home. If there is an issue, they may put them in foster care.
Well, if the bank forecloses on the home, the bank is now the legal owner of the home, so the renter should probably contact the bank.
If a 17 year old attempts to move out of the home there can be legal consequences. The minor can be charged as a run away and put in a home for children until 18 years of age.
The person who plays Ruby in home and away is called Rebecca Breeds! She is 24 years old but looks about 17!
Andy Williams passed away on Sep 25, 2012 from cancer at his home in Branson, Missouri.
When they are a legal adult, which is 18.
A 17 year old girl does not have any rights when moving away from home in Australia as the legal age to move out is 18.
