According to Arizona law, an adult is a person 18 or older (A.R.S. §1-215 (3)). Certain rights and responsibilities may apply before your 18th birthday if a court has found you to be emancipated (A.R.S. §12-2454).
There are many new rights and responsibilities that come with being an adult. It is important to keep in mind that as an adult you’re held accountable for your own actions. You need to know the laws governing your rights and responsibilities. This guide and its accompanying website LawForKids.org aims to give you a basic understanding of some important Arizona laws.
Keep in mind that this guide should not be construed as legal advice and does not cover each and every legal issue that you may face.
