I'm 17, my boyfriend is also 17. We live in Missouri, where emancipation isn't aloud. Or basically, doesn't exist. I've only lived here for 1 1/2 years and im not familliar with the laws. I've heard in this state at 17 you're legally aloud to move out without being considered a runaway.
We are both financially independent. So, though we aren't aloud to sign for papers ourselves for an apartment, his mother has agreed to it. And that is aloud from what people I know have done. (Correct me if I'm wrong)
My mother has told me that my JO forbid me from seeing my boyfriend. When I asked my JO he said that he hasn't forbidden me. He just suggests me to watch who I hang out with because if they get introuble for anyhting and im with them I will too, and it will go on my permanent record now. I have not been in trouble with the law ever. I only have an parented requested JO because of my mother's reports of silly little things. The police never did anything or charged me with anyhting because of how stupid they are. She once called the police because she told me to do the laundry and i said "I will in a minute". My boyfriend has been in trouble once when he was 13.
If im considered legally an adult in Missouri. Can she forbid me from moveing in with my boyfriend even though im considered an adult? And will the fact that i have a JO, and that my BF once before had a JO help me or hurt me in this process??
