Can someone move out at the age of 17?

Can a 17yr old move out of their parents house?…I want to move out of my parents house, which I kinda am anyways, I am going to be living with my sister, and my mom is giving her temporary custody I guess it would be. Now, I am pregnant and want to be with the father of my child,and I want to move in with him and my baby when I have him or her, and that is here, and my parents live 2-2 1/2 hours away, and Can I move out of my sister’s house when I am 17, if she has temporary custody of me?

Answer #1

If you’re pregnant, you can legally move out as a minor, in most states. You’ll have to check the laws in your specific state, but from what I understand, minors can legally move out if they’re married, pregnant/parents, or in the Army.
