You can move out whenever the **** you like but chances are you wont be able to provide for yourself.

You can't move out, for political and moral reasons.

This. Unless you have a decent job, dont kid yourself.

You have to be emancipated. To become emancipated, you have to show that you are responsible and able to care for yourself (you need a job, apartment, etc).

The real question is can you afford to move out? and if yes then yes.

No, you can't. You cannot purchase real estate until you're 19. As for moving in with a friend or another family member, you can with parental consent, or done through the court system to make it official.

Wut.


Not in the UK you dont.


Anyway threadstarter..you dont know you are born. Try working for a living and dealing with ****ty jobs ****ty apartments bills to pay and responsibilities. I wouldnt want that at 16 (i dont even want it at 26!!)


Just act more mature and realise your parents have ruined their lives to have you and pay for you. Pay some rent to them, tidy up dont argue and it will be all good n da hood.

I know a few people who've done that, and have managed to get by. (although it wasn't necessarily easy for them)

If you have supportive friends, the drive to make it on your own, and a very good reason to leave, I'd say go for it. Just don't expect it to be easy.

If we're just talking legally here, I think the answer in most places is yes.

Best of luck.

err where do you intend to live?

What is your income (gonna need quite a bit to rent)?

You'll never get a loan at age 16 with no credit history for anything you need a loan for.

How do you plan on getting around (public transportation, car)?

What do you intend to eat and how are you going to pay for it?

What do you plan on doing if you get sick and need to go to the doctor or emergency room?

Do you think you're willing to handle your own bills, mess with your own insurance, etc.?


Never mind if it's legal; that's not even important. If you can't do any one or more of these things right now, you have no business moving out. I'm almost willing to guarantee people have worse household situations than you; lose the teenage angst, avoid your parents, whatever you have to do. You probably have no business moving out on your own.

you can move out...go to a friend's house for a while until a) you resolve conflicts with your parents or b) you get a job and can support yourself

Well, those that move out early or get emancipated at an early age rarely go that far with their careers. I've seen it happen multiple times, and it's never easy.
If you have a roommate(s), it lightens the load, but also makes you dependant on other people, which is almost always gunna start ****.

Renting a place is an awful idea anyways. You don't officially own anything, so you're basically bleeding money.
This is one of the only options you have if you're not making good money at a steady, reliable job to afford real estate.

Not legally. North Dakota defines a minor as anyone under the age of 18.
There are no provisions for emancipated minors in the laws of ND.
Your parents could agree to waive parental rights and assign them to another adult.
The court could remove their parental rights and assign them to another adult.
Good luck getting that to happen though, unless there is abuse or smth.

You should definitley move out, we'll support you by sending you money and offering you places to stay. We could make an epic thread of it... and a Facebook page!
