18, unless you have parental consent or have been legally emancipated.

The legal age of majority for the state is 18. The state does not have grounds nor procedures for the emancipation of a minor. In individual situations pertaining to health issues the court has the power to grant a minor limited emancipation privileges.

You have to be 18 to legally sue someone but if your parents do it for you that would be legal

Once someone turns 18, they are legally an adult, and can legally be kicked from their parents home.

Age 18, unless the parents (and I believe a judge) agree to emancipate the minor before age 18 -- this can happen in certain circumstances where the individual minor has shown responsibility and stability or under other special circumstances.

yes you can legally leave but you cannot legally rent or sign leases at all. You also cant live under someone elses roof unless they have legally become your guardian. as i found out tonight. so your parents cant legally stop you from leaving but they can stop you from going anywhere.

No, only someone "of age" (18 years) can live without parental permission, If they do the parents can be charged with abuse.

Yes. At 18 you are legally an adult. Although you still can't legally buy alcoholic beverages until you are 21. So move out, but don't hit the booze.

Yes. It is the same for any state. When you turn 18, you are legally an adult and are free to move out whenever you like.

No. Adoption laws are strict. The court or parents must first legally sever parental ties before an adoption can take place.

Someone who was born in the U.S. legally with natural-born U.S. citizen parents or someone who actually took the steps to come to America and become a citizen properly.

There is no "given" age at which someone may be TAUGHT to drive. The question becomes - at what age does your state legally ALLOW you to drive?

It will require parental permission. You are not an adult yet and the parents have the ability to chose where you live.

The minor can not do this, it's up to the parents or guardian or court.

u should tell someone maybe they can help u get to live with ur grandparents or someone u trust!!!

A minor can never agree or give consent. Legally they are not considered mature enough to do so. Their parents or someone else can not give their permission either.

There are no wrongs or rights to who you like. It all depends on how you feel for them, how they feel towards you, if they are someone you can trust, and if your parents allow it( if you're still not legally an adult)

you can't legally torture someone and if you do it unlegally you'll probably end up in jail. Why would you want to torture someone anyway?

Only if you have parental permission. Until you are an adult, your parents are responsible for you. That includes determining where you live.

you can try if you want but legally no unless you know someone else responsible to move in with


You can legally fire someone for no reason because Missouri is an at will state. They do not have to give you a reason why they are firing you.
