i am 16 years old and currently live with my mother and very much considering emancipation.

in court orders it says i can't date a certain guy(he is 20) until i am 18.

But aside from that, assuming he is not violating a court order, and if he is not committing a crime and it does not sound as though he is, there would be no basis for him to wind up in jail.

It would be for the prosecutor to determine whether any charge should be filed and it would be up to a judge/jury to determine whether he would ultimately go to jail.

The age at which every person is considered an adult is known as the "age of majority" and is usually 18 years old.

In addition, some states allow minors who are living apart from their parents and supporting themselves to be "emancipated." This means that the minor will be treated as an adult for legal purposes.
