What is the legal age to move out in Missouri?
The legal age of majority for the state of MO. is 18. Missouri has a law that designates a 17-year old as being an "adult" for adjudication purposes only. Which means a 17-year old is considered an adult when it pertains to certain criminal offenses, and therefore can be tried in an adult court. The age cited in the juvenile code does not supercede the established legal age of majority which is indeed, 18-years of age.

Cases in which the whereabouts of the minor is known are handled differently.

The legal age of majority in Missouri is eighteen. Missouri has a addendum to the Juvenile Court Codes which reads an "adult" is anyone who is of the age of seventeen.
