This is not legal advice and should not be relied upon as such. Consult the specific laws for the state and county in which you reside for the rules that apply. In most states, any 18 year old is considered an adult and is capable of deciding when and where they reside. They have the ability to contract for housing. SOME states allow minors to become emancipated under specific circumstances, but this is not just a matter of filling out some paperwork. A minor is the responsibility of their parents until such time as they reach the age of majority or are legally emancipated. The parents are required to provide for the support of their minor children. If the parents give permission, the minor can live in another location. Such permission does not relieve the parents of the responsibility to provide support. If the parents do not give permission, the minor can be considered a runaway. Charges may apply to individuals that aid and abet such runaways, particularly if they are under the age of consent. In some states it is my understanding that this is not enforced for 17 year olds that leave home. If you are subject to abuse, you should contact social services for your area. They will assist you in getting out of the bad environment and into a safe place.
Being in high school or not has nothing to do with it. When you are 18 you are a legal adult and your parents no longer have legal say as to what you can or can't do.
The legal age is 18
Once the child turns 18, she can stop being responsible for her son at any time. Even if the child is still in school, he is still a legal adult and is no longer the parent's responsibilty.
The state's legal age of majority and the age for compulsory school attendance is 18.
No. Being pregnant/having a child does not emancipate a minor. When she turns 18, she will be a legal adult.
Being a high school graduate does not legally make you an adult. To be a legal adult, you have to be at least 18 years old, or you can request a judge to emancipate you.
still in school
yes. my brother done it.
An eighteen year old that is still in high school does not have to be emancipated. According to the law, a person that is the age of eighteen is a legal adult.
I THINK THAT IT IS 18 BUT AS LONG AS THE CHILD IS STILL IN SCHOOL, HIGH SCHOOL OR COLLEGE, THEN THE ABSENT PARENT IS REQUIRED TO PAY AS LONG AS THE CHILD IS STILL IN SCHOOL.
It's still legal, the older person in this case being 19, has to be withing 4 years of the youth, so the youth being 16, still makes it legal.
Yes. The legal age is 18.
I have an 18 yr old son still in high school. My exhusband says he no longer has to pay child support. is this legal in Massachusetts
Everywhere. They're legal tender and are still being printed.
No where as of yet. They are still being extensively tested in CA though....
i would think so because u are a legal adult.
I think it is because of money being tight, but high school sports are still in, but not for fresman. Hope this helps.
Legal age in Texas to move out 17 as long as you are still enrolled in school . If not in school you must be 18.
No, you must still have parents permission, at least in my old school. I guess it just depends on your schools policy.
Weed is still "marijuana" which can be detected regardless of it being legal or illegal because even though it is illegal, patients can still have it prescribed to them and if they are tested for drugs then marijuana will show up.
yes it is illegal for a 18 yr old to date a 24 yr still in high school
If a 17 year old quits school, you as a parent or guardian will still have to pay for support because the 17 year old is still not of legal adult age which is 18.
yes getting your license or permit has nothing to do with being in school.
