    Age To Choose

    Ok this is a really important question I need help with. I can not find it anywhere online and it's need to know asap. What is the age that you are allowed to choose which parent you want to live with? I thought it was 13 but I'm not sure. Does anyone else know the age you have to be?

    In advance sorry about this thread but I've been searching hours for the answer.

    You legally turn into an adult at 18 years of age. Before you turn 18, you need a court order to become emancipated from parental supervision. The other side is- if the parent allows the child to live with another guardian. But it's the parents choice.

    If there's physical abuse , I say contact the police and get a court order. (MY OPINION) If one is so young, the worst they can do is have a relative take custody, or someone who is set up for it.

    For Florida you have to be 13 to chose who you want to live with. Sinistra looked it up for me.

    Re: Age To Choose

    untill u turn 18... ur parents own u... they have legal power over u... they represent u... and can do wut ever they want with u(without breaking the law ofcource).... so Im guessing 18... unless ur parents give u the concent to live with another person... or another possibility could be that u get emancipated.... or some legal stuff like that...
    <<<< EDIT >>>>>
    wait I forgot the case that ur parents r divorced... then you could choose bewteen mom and dad.... depending on wut the court says

    I don't mean to be a smartass. But how come Sinistra could look it up and find the answer and you couldn't. I just find it weird for some reason.

    Most likely, the age of majority in your state is 18, and if your sister leaves home before that, she can be forced to return to your parents' custody. If your sister is really being treated badly, i.e. abused or neglected, you should have social services investigate, in which case she could be placed with another relative or put in foster care.

    Re: Age To Choose

    Depends,

    if you are going to live with a relative, then theres no age i suppose. As for trying to go and live out on your own, you of course need a job and money to up keep the rent XD.
    Iy also depends on what the definition of "treated badly" you go by (no need to explain, im just shouting hypos here)/ there was some sort of physical abuse then yes its possible to be taken care of by an organization. But if there is just an arguement amoung the child and parents and then its possible its the child who needs to better understand why the parents make the decisions they make(in other words, fammily counciling)

    legal age to drop out school (where im from) : 16
    Legal Age(government wise) ; 18
    My guess at a general idea : 18
