    Default Can a Minor Move In With Us After He Turns 18

    I hope someone can help. My son has a friend who will be 18 soon. This friend wants to move in with my family after he turns 18. His mother is not happy about this at all. I want to know if he moves in with us after he turns 18, can she make him come home and am I breaking any laws by allowing him to live with us after he turns 18? I have researched all over the internet and get confusing facts. Some say at 18 he can do as he pleases but then I read on other places and it says that in the state of Mississippi he is not able to move out until he is 21. I want to make sure no one can get in trouble and that she can't drag him back home if he doesn't want to go.

    Although one is not considered an "adult" in Mississippi until the age of 21, the age of majority - the age at which you may enter into contracts, buy property, and make decisions about where you live for yourself - is 18.

    I can see where that allows the minor to enter into contracts but I see nothing that would allow self emancipation due to the age. Am I missing something in there?
