Can an 18 year old withdraw herself from school without parent/guardian permission?

Tampa, FL |

She wants to live with her sister in a different state but her father wants her to live with him until she's in her mid 20's.

  1. Yes. But if you are 18, you should go ahead and finish school.


  2. Yes, but if her father is willing to support her until she is in her mid 20's, she should consider that carefully, and try not to burn any bridges.
