Question: I am going to be 18 in November but I am in my senior year of high school and I graduate in May, am I legally allowed to move out when I turn 18 before I graduate?
Answer: There is a booklet published by Arizona Foundation for Legal Services and Education called "When You Turn 18". Ask your high school counselor if they have a copy for you, if not, you can download the handbook as a pdf at www.azflse.org. There is a lot of information, answers, and tips on becoming an adult at 18 and may answer your question regarding moving out. Questions you may want to consider are: Do you have a job? Can you support yourself on this salary? Do you have a place to live? Will you have to have someone co-sign on a lease? Do you have transportation? There are many more things to consider when moving out of the home. You may want to speak with a counselor at school, your parents, or an attorney.
