I wish to inform you that the laws of your State will determine your right to move out at 17 years of age. Generally, a child is not allowed to move out against parents wishes. You may have to first obtain emancipation from the Court and then you may move out at 17 years of age without parental consent. The parents are guardians of the children. Therefore, the parents have the power to restrict the child's rights of moving out.

Yes, in most states it is possible for a minor to be granted emancipation by the court. The minor would have to satisfy the court that he or she is self supporting--be gainfully employed enough to provide for all their needs and mature enough to be on their own without supervision.

No you may not. You have to be 18. That is the law.

You can not move out legally until 18 unless your parents sign a consent form or you go to court to have the courts do it. So no you may not do it now.

The right answer was given in the first reply. A minor will have to prove to the court that they are self-supporting and mature enough to be on their own without supervision.

That is the correct answer, restated different ways by everyone that has answered. That would be my answer as well.

No, you may not just move out of your parents home at 17. At 17 you are still a minor, a child, even though you may think you are grown.

Where would you go? How would you support yourself? Have you graduated from high school? Who will care for you and your needs?

You are not an adult and until you are, you may not live on your own.
