In the states, your parents are responsible for your health and well being until you turn 18. Prior to that, you must be declared an emancipated minor. To do this, you must prove to the courts that you are financially secure, mature, and able to continue to attend school.
So, 18 is going to be the magic age. But remember, moving out is an immense responsibility. It's financially draining, but if approached with maturity, it can be very rewarding.
