  1. This is probably not the best idea unless you receive his emancipation. Minor emancipation is a court action that will have him legally declared to be an adult. he will be responsible for making is own decisions for housing, education, health care and financial matters from that point forward. You will also no longer be financially or legally liable for him. But until that happens kicking him out is not really a good idea.
