legal age in SC to leave home of parents

2 posts in this topic

You say "can", which is merely a question of what is possible. The age of majority in SC is eighteen, though if one gets married (though you couldn't do so without parental consent), you'd be considered emancipated.

As a practical matter, it isn't likely that law enforcement would force you to return and return or put you in the juvenile system as a chronic runaway if you left once you "turned" 17 (which in fact marks the *end* of your 17th year/trip around the sun and the beginning of your 18th). You'd have to inquire locally what their position is on that, if you really want to know ahead of time.
