    You must be 18. No court is going to allow you to move out because your parents are, in your opinion, being 'buttholes'.

    Arrow Sorry...

    In order 2 get emancipated u would hav 2 show alot of maturity and hav a better reason then that i can tell u no court will emancipate u for that but if u got urself 2gether and everythin & had a logical reason then they might but it all dependz on reason and stuff and sorry but that isnt a good enough reason need a better 1.

    Arrow Nope.....

    I hate to dissapoint you honey but you have to have a good reason to lave home not a reason like that I know for a fact cause ive been through it you also have to show a huge level of maturity 2. No court is going to allow you to leave juss cause you dont really get along w/your parents sorry need more reasons then that.

    Age of majority is age 18.
    I suggest that you ask your parents' permission to go live with a family friend, and other family or friends. Lots of teens do not like their parents, so that alone is not a good reason to try and leave home.

    My question would be "What are they not letting you do?" I am going thru the same thing with my 16 yr old.

    To answer the original question, 18. Explicitly 18. No twists, loopholes, or confusing statutes.

    I am so sorry your mom wants to pull you from your happy place,but legally she can do so,and if she moves to arkansas,you have to go with her. The only way you could stay is if your mom ok's your friends mom to become guardian of you,it doesn't sound like she is going to do this. I wish you luck but let me state again,if your mom insists that you go with her,you have to do so. Sorry!!

    Default Moving Out

    BY Oklahoma State Law a child can petition the court at the age of 15 to decide guardianship.

    This thread was dead.

    Guardianship is not the same thing as emancipation.

    The minor cannot petition the court on his or her own.

    Without a valid reason (other than "my parents are buttholes), a court will not grant emancipation or a change of guardianship to the minor.

    Its 18 what you heard was wrong. You may live outside of your parents home with consent but no other way.

    Default What about the age in Puerto Rico?

    I have a friend who turned 18 today and wants to move back to New Jersey this weekend.

    Her parents have told her to not even think about it.

    Can they stop her?

    I can't find any details on the internet.

    Do you have to be 21 in puerto rico to legally move out on your own?

    Thanks

    The age of majority in Puerto Rico is 18, so when your 18 you can move out.

    Of course, that works both ways.

    At 18, parents are no longer financially, emotionally or physically responsible for the child either.

    When you leave the house, they could change the locks and say they have never known you. They could completely cut you off without a dime and without a home to come back to.

    Just putting things in perspective.
    Not everything that makes you mad, sad or uncomfortable is legally actionable.

    I am not now nor ever was an attorney.

    Any statements I make are based purely upon my personal experiences and research which may or may not be accurate in a court of law.

    That is absolutely INCORRECT.

    And please - don't respond to a years-old post. Thanks.

    And your teacher ain't here, and your teacher doesn't know SQUAT.
