Can I move into another family members home at age 16?
3 attorney answers
No, your aunt does not have a right to take you from your parents and you, as a minor under their care, do not have a right to leave your parents to move into someone else's house. I suggest trying some form of counseling or family mediation perhaps.

No. You don't just get to pick another place to live. If your situation is that dire, I'd suggest contacting social services or a school counselor. Until something is legally done about it, though, you can't just move as you see fit.
