ihatethiscomp said:under ny law, your parents are repsonsible for you untill youre 21, you can only leave with their permission, if they say no, and you run away, you can be placed in juvenile detention, and its no picnic. my advice-stay home and finish school first.
you are the one giving incorect info. the age of majority in ny is 21, which means her parents ARE respsonsible for her untill shes 21 in all ways including financialmagic55 said:Nope she can leave at 18, but if she does with out her parents permission they are not responsible for her financially. Stop giving the girl incorrect information.
CHILD SUPPORT can be untill you are 21 in NY, that is it, that is all.[/I][/B]xylene said:It is 18.
Magic is right.
I challenge to find an instance in the last 20 years when a New Yorker, 18 years old or older has been:
Declared a run-away.
and / or
Subjected to any parental control over residence by force of law.
Don't alienate your parents. I can guarantee that you will need them down the line.need advice06 said:What is the name of your state? NY
