Grandparents' Rights

questions & answers

Question: can my grandmother take my phone if she doesn't pay for it.

Answer:

This depends on your age and to the extent that she has taken your items. In Arizona the age of majority is 18. Age of majority is the legal age established under State law at which an individual is no longer a minor but an adult, and therefore assumes the rights and responsibilities to make certain legal choices. This means that if she is your legal guardian and if you are a minor than she does have legal right to your property. In that same respect if you are over the age of majority (18) then you assume responsibility over your items.
