You are emancipated. You can move anywhere you like.


Yes but it is always best to stay on good terms with your parents. Although 18 is old enough to leave home you will have a lot of trouble starting a "career" without more education.

IF YOU FOUND THIS ANSWER "Helpful" or " The Best Answer" YOU CAN THANK ATTORNEY RADDATZ BY MARKING IT SO because Avvo awards the attorney points. MS. RADDATZ is donating her time and talent by answering questions to help those in need of legal information. This is NOT a consultation and in no way creates an attorney-client relationship. YOU SHOULD ALWAYS PERSONALLY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN YOUR LOCAL AREA who has specific expertise in the area of law you are asking about.


Yes, you can. However, a cross country move will be much easier with the help and support of your parents and family.

This response shall not be construed as specific legal advice and does not create an attorney-client relationship or privilege. Further, this response is not intended to solicit legal fees.


Yes you can. You are an emancipated adult.
