Florida's legal age of majority (the age at which a person is considered an adult) is 18. That being the case parents no longer have custodial/legal rights over their child, nor are they legall or financially responsible for the child unless there is a court order that states otherwise. The parents do, however, have the legal right to request the adult child to move from the family residence and to obtain assistance from the court if the adult child refuses to comply. In cases where a child is physically and/or mentally challenged the parents should seek the assistance of the state's department of family services.
