    How old do I have to be to move out of my parents house?
    I'd like to know how old I have to be to move out of my parents house, I am only 15, and I think that I could have my life together better if they weren't around all the time, I have thought this through, I can cook and clean, I'm not wanting to right away, not until I get a job and a car and I know I can do it. So I was wondering if I would have to go to court to move out early and such or how this is going to work... thank you.

    The age depends on the State - it has little do with cooking and cleaning and more to do with whether you can support yourself, which you have to prove to the Court.

    So get a job, support yourself, get some apartment leads and then go to Court and file a Petition to be emancipated.

    - Or maybe your parents will simply consent and you won't have to go to Court.

    I live in NS, Canada, well see if I can make my own meals and look after my place I would say that has to do with supporting myself... and I am waiting until I get a decent job and an apartment I could rent, now I know for a fact that they wouldn't LET me go. I was thinking all this through about how much money I would have to make in order to live and I know everything I need to know now... so I'm just wondering what the legal age is, and if I should just wait.

    Unless there is some seroius reason why you need to be emancipated there is little chance a court will just because you want to.

    You can move out at 18

    Where are you?

    In general you need to be self supporting with your own "place" to live.
