The parent(s) or legal guardian to whatever extent the state law prescribes.

Certainly, as long as she has parental permission. Until she turns 18, or is emancipated, she is the responsibility of her parents. They determine where she can live.

No, because in order to be emancipated, or freed, one must first be a slave. And since Arkansas is in the USA, where slavery is illegal, a 16 year old girl cannot be emancipated in Arkansas.

The laws depend on your state. In general, if you got married you could be emancipated, or if you joined the military. Getting emancipated with parental consent is easiest.

18 without being emancipated. Each state has different laws for how to be emancipated and how early it can be done and under what circumstances.

No, fourteen is much too young. Most places require the minor to be at least 16 and show proof of support to get emancipated.

It will depend on the state or country involved. It is possible to get emancipated in some places at 16, if they can support themselves.

Yes, she could be emancipated, but if the parents give permission (normally required for emancipation anyway) she can move in without being emancipated.

No, you are not emancipated automatically when you have a child. It does not mean one has the ability to take care of yourself. You do have certain rights as to obtaining assistance for you and your child, but you are still the responsibility of your parents until you turn 18.

Not unless you have parental consent or is emancipated.

{| |- | No they cannot. And she won't be able to be emancipated in most states, even those with emancipation statutes, she is too young at 14. Until they are adults they remain the responsibility of their parents. That includes the parents determining where thay can live. |}

Ohio does not allow a minor to petition for emancipation. A minor in Ohio is considered emancipated if they are married or have joined the military, both of which require parental consent.

I have a hard time believing a court would emancipate a 15yo but if she is emancipated she is free to marry whoever she wants.

No she is not. The ability to have a child does not make a girl an adult.
