  • 17 and want to move out w/out parent consent

    I live in Illinois and I really want to move out now.My mom is bipolar and has alot of problems and she is constantly treating me wrong and everyone that i know feels the same way.She is always threatening me and she has hit me a few times b4.I just really want to move out and get away from her. I heard recently that the law in Illinois changed from 18 to 17 to be able to move out w/o parent consent. Is that true and if not what would it take for me to get emancipated?
    Thank you

    There is no law in IL, or any other state, that gives a minor the right to leave home at 17 without parental consent.

    Here's some info on IL's EMANCIPATION OF MATURE MINORS ACT:

    http://www.bostoncoop.net/lcd/emanci.../illinois.html

    Please note:

    No order of complete or partial emancipation may be entered under this Act if there is any objection by the minor, his parents or guardian

    If there is abuse, report it!
