People under the age of eighteen are minors (and therefore under the control of their parents or legal guardians) until they attain the age of majority (which in most states is either set at 18 years old or requires the person be either both 18 and out of high school or at least 20 years old), at which point they become adults. However, in special circumstances, a minor can be freed from control by their guardian before turning 18. The exact laws and protocols for obtaining emancipation vary from state to state. In most states, the minor must file a petition with the family court in the applicable jurisdiction, formally requesting emancipation and citing reasons why it is in their best interest to be emancipated. The minor must prove financial self-sufficiency. In some states, free legal aid is available to minors seeking emancipation, through children's law centers. This can be a valuable resource for minors trying to create a convincing emancipation petition. Students are able to stay with a guardian if necessary. What an emancipated minor is legally able to do depends heavily on state law. Many states, for example New York, grant emancipated minors many additional rights over unemancipated minors. Emancipations are not easily granted because of the subjectivity and narrowness of the definition of "best interest." On one end of the spectrum are minors who have been victims of abuse. In most cases, the state's department of child services will be notified and the child placed in foster care. On the other end of the spectrum are minors who are seeking emancipation for reasons such as being dissatisfied with their parents' or guardians' rules. In those cases, the emancipation will most likely be denied and the minor will be sent back home with the parent or guardian.
No. And no one would be stupid enough to allow a 14 year old to live alone in their house. And you're not going to get an emancipation. You need both a good reason (bad parents is not a good reason, it's a reason for social services to step in) and money. You have neither. If your parents are abusing you in some way, call social services.
well the whole reason im not liviing in my house and the reason im looking for a house is because , im not living with my perents because they are baa perents, they dont want me in the house but my mom said she would pay for half the rent , and she would pay for groceries.
Persons under the age of 18 are not deemed legally competent to enter into contracts. So no one is going to rent to you, because you could stiff them for the rent and they would be unable to sue you for it (although they could still kick you out).
No you can't at 14. Under no circumstance would any responsible house owner rent a house to a child. Even if your mother signed for the house, they wouldn't let you live there alone.
california. if ur mom signed for it than yah ud be able to but if anyone ever caught u there alone and asked for where ur parents are they might involve child services or something.
You live in Canada, so 16 is the legal age, not 18, but at 14 - there's no way. If your parents are bad parents, call Children's Aid and have them place you in a foster home.
P.S. if you aren't yet smart enough to use google to look up a word... you probably aren't nearly ready to deal with the intricacies of running your own home.
by the state of law dont matter wher you live theres no way you could rent a house onless you sneak in and sleepther
well.. what if my mom signed for it ? like if my mom signd the contract , but i lived their.?
if you get an emancipation, your considered an adult ergo the right to rent a house
