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 and as an adult you are held accountable for your own actions. It is important 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 that may impact you When You Turn 18.
