At what age can I move otu of my house without parental consent?
1 Answer from Attorneys
18. See 23 Pa.C.S.A. Section 5101:
Attainment of full age (a) Age for entering into contracts.--Any individual 18 years of age and older shall have the right to enter into binding and legally enforceable contracts and the defense of minority shall not be available to such individuals. (b) Age for suing and being sued.--Except where otherwise provided or prescribed by law, an individual 18 years of age and older shall be deemed an adult and may sue and be sued as such. You can do everything at age 18 except consume alcohol.
