My friend is 17 years old and we live in Ohio. She will be 18 in 34 days. She has been planning to move out of her home for well over a year now, and my mother and I have offered to take her in when she reaches 18 and can move out.
Her mother has begun telling her that she cannot move out on her 18th birthday, because she is still in high school. I have read on several different sites that whether you are still in school or not, you can move out of your parents home at the age of 18. Is this true?
