  • Moving out at 18

    Hello.
    I am wanting to move out when I’m 18... I am however not graduating highschool til I’m 19... I am homeschooled so my question is: can I, legally, move out and do online courses to finish my hs out?

    Since you are 18 you are more than likely considered a legal adult which means that you can move out if you want to and you won’t be considered a runaway. As a legal adult, you have a right to make your own decisions about where you live. We can help you make a plan for how to deal with your situation and help you find resources to land on your feet. Having a plan for where you will live and how you will survive once you move out can be very helpful. Moving can be a huge step, and you don’t have to be alone. Some steps you can take towards independence might be to find employment if you don’t have an income, or to save up money for moving expenses. It can also be helpful to research rents in your area, find a roommate, or make a budget. Another thing you might want to consider is what kinds of things you depend on your parents for currently such as tuition expenses for school, or health insurance, and whether they would continue to provide those things after you leave. There may be social service agencies in your area that can help meet some of these needs, such as Transitional Living Programs, a kind of shelter where young adults can live and get services to help them transition to independent living. We are here to listen and help however we can. As far as your high school things it might be best to look up homeschool laws on the internet to try and get a better sense of things. If you have anymore questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Either online (www.1800runaway.org) or call at (1-800-786-2929).
    Best Wishes- NRS
