This post is provided for general informational purposes only and is not intended to be legal advice specific to you. This general information is not a substitute for the advice of an attorney in your jurisdiction. The attorney client relationship is not established by this post.
You do not break any laws by moving out. Once you are out of the house and living on your own or with your SO, you could petition the court for a declaration of emancipation. If you move out, the only thing your parents could do is to allege (to CPS) that your child is in danger, or they could apply for guardianship. You need a lot of support in these situations, and they can go either way. If you can wait until you turn 18, you would avoid a lot of potential problems. Start a search for local supportive resources, and plan carefully, so you don't look scattered and flaky. Good luck.
As a minor, you are legally incapable of entering into contracts, such as for a job, an apartment, a car, credit cards, and insurance. You and your child will receive health care on an emergency basis but both of you will need more. Waiting until you are 18 (or older) to go out into the world is preferred in the eyes of the law. Good luck.
An attorney-client relationship cannot be created through the asking of questions and the providing of answers on Avvo. An attorney-client relationship can only be created after a meeting between attorney and client, with an understanding between them of their respective rights and responsibilities, followed by a comprehensive written agreement.
