18, unless your move a court to have the child emancipated sooner.

If you have not done so already, I suggest you try counseling/other ways to resolve the situation. If you kick your son/daughter out, there may be no salvaging the relationship again, and you may live to regret it. Further, your son/daughter is not likely to have a better quality of life on the streets.

Good luck!
