Turning 18 in Missouri

The Missouri Bar has developed a publication specially prepared as an introduction to your rights and responsibilities as an adult citizen of the United States. There is no manual that tells you everything you need to know once you become an adult in the eyes of Missouri law. However, this publication will answer basic questions in several areas that will affect your everyday life in Missouri. It can be alarming the day you turn 18. We want you to be as fully informed as possible.
