“On Your Own” Guide


The “On Your Own: Your Legal Rights and Responsibilities as an Adult” website was developed by the Iowa State Bar On Your Own logoAssociation.  It provides valuable legal information for teens and young adults.

When you turn 18 years old, you are now a “legal” adult. You can now vote, make contracts, and be registered for Selective Service. But you will also be treated as an adult in court. So you need to understand, respect, and obey the law.

In the attached links at this website, you will find some of the many laws/legal issues that you need to understand. It is important to remember that if you find yourself in trouble there is help available. You are not alone.

The categories include:
