Emancipation

questions & answers

Question: Can I legally move out once I turn 17 and 6 months?

Answer: EMANCIPATION - The legal term used to describe the point at which parents are no longer responsible for their children and children are no longer answerable to their parents. This usually occurs at the age of 18. However, emancipation may sometimes occur earlier if and when the parent and child have agreed to live independently, the child has joined the military, the child has married, or a court has granted an appropriate petition to declare a child emancipated. Emancipation also affects a child's legal rights and responsibilities.
