Can I legally move out at 17???
Legally, you must be the 'age of majority' for your state (usually 18) or become emancipated:
Emancipation refers to the point at which a child is free from parental control.
Emancipation may be the result of a voluntary agreement between the parents and child, or it may be implied from their acts and ongoing conduct. For example, a child who leaves her parents' home and becomes ENTIRELY SELF-SUPPORTING without their objection is considered emancipated, while a child who goes to stay with a friend or relative and gets a part-time job is not. Emancipation may also occur when a minor child marries or enters the military.
In order to become emancipated you must be able to answer the above questions and be self supporting which means:
- Have a job
- Live in home or apartment
- pay bills
Contact the Court office or a Professional Attorney in your immediate area for further assistance.
I wish you the best !!
