When I had just newly turned 17, I had to go to court for truancy. I didn't, however, get on probation. I did have to have a Lady come check up on me every-so-often.. Now that I'm 18, I'm trying to move out. My mom is trying to say that I can't because of the judges rules. She has a history of making things up just to get what she wants so I'm a little doubtful of what she has said.. she says that I cannot move out unless she says I can, based on the Judges rules...
Is this true?
Normally, as an 18 year old, you are a legal adult and can move out if you want. However, no one here can know if the terms of your probation say otherwise. Check with your probation officer and/or attorney.
TO ALL QUESTIONERS: I provide this answer in an effort to assist and guide only. The answers are qualified further by you providing the full and complete facts and background or not, and by the space limitations of this forum. The answer does not serve as a substitute for a live sit-down with an attorney. In no way is any answer to be construed as a formal giving of legal advice nor is an attorney-client relationship formed. You are not permitted to quote or refer to answers given in any court pleading or hearing. TO QUESTIONERS FROM WV & NY: Although I am licensed to practice in your state, be advised that I practice on a day-to-day basis in Massachusetts. I answer questions in your state in areas of the law in which I practice, and in which I feel comfortable trying to offer you assistance based on my knowledge of specific statutes in your state and/or general principles applicable in all states. Being licensed to practice there, however, does not provide me with the detailed knowledge of local procedures and practices that comes from day-to-day work. It is always best to work with attorneys and court personnel in your own area to deal with specific problems and factual situations.
