Family Law Glossary: Age of majority

Experienced Roseville Lawyers

The age of majority in Placer County is when a child becomes a legal adult and can, for example, enter into legally-binding contracts and manage their own finances without any interference from their parents. Currently, the age of majority in California is 18. Child support generally ends at 18, but it can continue if the child is still living at home and in high school. Alternatively, a child might seek emancipation from a court or by getting married, which will allow them to exercise many of the same rights as adults.
