Question: If you are 18 and still in high school, can your parents legally kick you out ?
The following is provided for general purposes only and should not be construed as legal advice. To determine how the law applies to your specific situation, please consider consulting an attorney.
In Arizona, parents are obligated to support their children until they reach the age of majority. According to A.R.S. 25-501, “If a child reaches the age of majority while the child is attending high school or a certified high school equivalency program, support shall continue to be provided while the child is actually attending high school or the equivalency program but only until the child reaches nineteen years of age.” This generally means that if a child reaches the age of majority (18, in Arizona) but is still attending high school, then so long as the child is attending school the parents are obligated to support him or her. This obligation will terminate at the time the child turns 19 or ceases to attend school.
