I`m 18 and my mother won`t let me leave the house. She says the new Colorado state law says I can`t legally leave the house until I`m 19. It`s true? I recently turned 16. I broke up with my girlfriend when I was 15 and she was 17. Now she`s 18 and wants to put me on child support. Can it? Even if she doesn`t let me see my daughter? I am a miner and I live in North Carolina. Anyway, I live in Florida and use the apartment in New York for income and the floor as housing when I visit my family who also live there. I just want to know how old the real age is because I`m tired of being rushed. Thank you, a full-fledged mother. Is it true that a man is considered an adult only when he reaches the age of 21, but a woman is considered an adult at the age of 18? I am 17 years old. Tomorrow I will be 18. I left home when I was about to turn 17, so my mom had to file a runaway report.
Almost 10 months later, they grabbed me and placed me in a children`s home and I ran out and also missed my court date. I`ve never had any problems with fees or anything except this one. And I have a 17-year-old girlfriend who is six months pregnant with my baby. In the United States, the age of consent can range from 16 to 18 and is not adulthood, regardless of the other person`s age, they cannot be charged with legal rape (sexual intercourse with a minor). Sometimes there is a younger age than two older people can legally have. I am 17 years old and I am currently a senior. I will graduate next month. I will also turn 18 next month. However, I am 5 1/2 months pregnant and my parents don`t like the father of my child. I worry about the health of my unborn child because of the stress my parents put on me every day.
If I move today and move in with the father of my unborn child, can I still be legally in trouble? I, for one, don`t think that`s true because I`m a legal adult. They no longer have to accommodate and take care of me. I think I`m very mature for my age. I know that moving won`t be easy and it won`t be everything I dream of. I always want to be able to have the freedom to do what I want and need. No, I don`t mean celebrating and spending time with friends. I want the freedom to go to the library and pick up school supplies when I need them. It is natural for parents to become sentimental when children reach the age of 18, but this stage has profound legal implications. Want to see your 18-year-old`s medical records, notes or bank statements? No one can do this (unless your child formally consents). The same federal privacy laws that gave you access to report cards and disciplinary records close that door when your child turns 18. Wow, it seems like a lot of people have a hard time checking your state`s laws.
If you`re 18 and living in the United States, no matter what, you can legally leave your parents` house. The only state, unless emancipated, where you can move at 17 is Texas. My son is 18 years old and recently left the state to live with his father and stepmother while attending school. He has had many medical problems since birth and will need to see specialists for the rest of his life. Can he legally prevent his in-laws and father from attending his doctor`s appointments? I`ll be 15 in September, but I don`t want to grow up safe. So am I still a child or a child or what, because I get a mixed signal when people say, “Oh, when you`re 16, you`re an official adult.” And I have this sister who is also celebrating her 14th birthday. I am 17 years old and I will be 18 years old on June 16. I want to marry a 30-year-old man. Do my parents have to sign? I know that being 18 means that you are a legal adult and now have the same rights and rules as a 38-year-old, but as an 18-year-old who still lives at home and is a full-time student and has no jobs and no responsibilities, Except for getting up and going to school, don`t you always have to follow the house rules? I know that in the state of Texas for girls is 17 years old. Why do I know? That`s because my sister tried to run away and my mother found her. My sister tried to run again and my mother saw a policeman and stopped him. When the policeman asked to see my sister`s ID card and saw that she had just turned 17, he told my mother that there was nothing he could do because she was old enough to do what she wanted.
My mother went everywhere and asked lawyers and they said the same thing. anon21725: Yes, it is possible. Legally, your parents can`t force you to stay; If they do, they can get into legal trouble. Once you`re 18, you don`t legally have to listen to your parents. After all, it`s the only country where you`re not an adult at the age of 16. I am a 13 year old girl from Canada and my boyfriend is 16 (just turned 16 in July) and he is from the United States. My mother and stepfather have been very violent with me since I was about four years old. And I only met my real father four times. My father-in-law has been busy for as long as I can remember and now he`s starting to bring scary people into our house.
And Mama My is a stripper who travels everywhere. And every day I`m afraid that something will happen and I don`t want to live in that situation anymore. I am a 17-year-old woman living in Missouri. I won`t be 18 until next year, but I want to know if I can legally leave my home to live with my boyfriend and his mother. My boyfriend is also 17 and will be 18 in four months. I absolutely hate it in my house and I am basically the Cinderella of my family. You may want to wait until you move in together when you`ve finished school, have a good job, and know what you want for yourself and the two of you. So what changes when you`re 18? The California State Bar Association has already published an interesting guide for teens to better understand how their rights and responsibilities change at age 18. My daughter turned 18 in November and is still in high school until June 2010. Is our custody order now that she is 18 years old? Does she have to visit her father every weekend, even if she doesn`t want to? I am 17 years old, I will be 18 years old in January 2011. Of course, I still live with my parents and I really wish I could move already.
I go to school and when I`m 18, I`ll still be in school. I want to move a few weeks after I turn 18, but my mother told me, “You can`t leave because you`re still in school and I still have custody of you. I still have responsibility for you. My daughter has a bill in a doctor`s office. She was 18 years old when she accumulated this bill. I was there and I had seen my other child there, and the accounting department told me that I was responsible for the invoice. It`s true? She is now 19 years old and the lady in the accounting department said that I was still responsible for her. I live in Wyoming. As far as I know, you are considered an adult in Wyoming at 18. So, is it fair for her to discuss her bill with me without my daughter`s permission? I am 15 and I will be 16 in 2 months and I want to leave my house when I am 16 because my mother and sisters are abusing me. They have their own children, but they do not take care of them.
They always have to tell me to take care of them and I can`t live my life in peace and my father doesn`t want to know anything about us.
