Exclamation Leaving home at 17 in Missouri... Can I live out of state?

I recently found out you can legally move out of your parents home in Missouri at 17. How do I go through with this? Also I was wondering if this law will apply to me even if I leave the state. I would be planning on living in Florida or Washington state which law states you can leave your parents home at 18. Could I leave MO under law to move out at 17 to live in Florida or Washington?

Normally you are governed by the law of the state you are in as well, so in a state that says 18, you could be returned under their law even if your own state did not require it.

If you are formally emancipated that normally is valid nationwide.
