At what age can a minor child stay home alone without supervision?
I am unable to give you legal advice on divorce. I can give general divorce help for men, though, my knowledge is based on Georgia child custody laws where I am licensed to practice.
There is no legislation where I practice that states what an appropriate age is. That is something that should be determined on a case-by-case basis.
In looking to my state’s family law statutes it has been acknowledged that the appropriate age varies from child to child.
However, as a guideline, it is generally considered appropriate for children between the ages of 9 and 12 to be at home alone for short periods of time and for children ages 13 and older to serve as babysitters for younger children.
Remember, I am unable to provide you with anything more than divorce tips for men, so please consult with divorce lawyers for men in your jurisdiction.
