The state's legal age of majority is 18. For ages 16-17 you must get an emancipation order from the court which may be limited to specific areas.

The age of majority and age of emancipation in Illinois in 18 years. At that age, the young adult can enter into contracts, marry, join the military, get a job, leave the parental home or be ordered out of the home, etc. Children between 16 and 18 can petition the court for emancipation but this requires fulfilling a list of legal requirements regarding source of support, physical safety, etc.

Only two states have legislated a specific age to leave a child home alone, Illinois and Maryland. Generally speaking, the child must be safe, must feel safe, and know how to take care of themselves in an emergency.
