Nebraska Laws Declares Age of Majority to be 19

Nebraska law has claimed that eighteen-year-olds still won't be called as full adults, but will be closer to it under a bill making its way through the state Legislature.

Lawmakers on Wednesday extended its first-round approval to a measure that would legally permit 18-year-olds to enter into contracts for things like rental houses and receive medical care without parental consent.

In addition, parents would be obliged to sign legal agreements delegating medical authority to 18-year-olds.

However, the age of majority would remain 19 for many things in accordance to the Rogert's bill, including leaving foster care and having child support extended by parents.

Nebraska lands among some few states where the age of majority is 19, not 18.

Also, one can marry at 17 in Nebraska; the drinking age is still 21.
