Answer:

The age of majority in Illinois is 18. Until that time you are considered a minor and under the supervision of your parents. Only if you become emanicipated prior to 18 would that supervision cease. An emanicipation is generally a court action to remove the disability of minority but has to be based on reasons and can be contested by the parents.
