The eviction of minors from the household, also known as throwing out/kicking out a child, is an action that is debatable in its legality in most countries.

In the West, it is generally advised against by family services institutions. In the United Kingdom in particular, it is legal to evict children from the household at the age of 16, but the parent can request information on the whereabouts of the evicted minor until the minor attains 18 years of age. Eviction at any lower age may result in the state filing criminal charges of child neglect and/or child abandonment.
