743.046 Removal of disabilities of minors; executing agreements for utility services.For the sole purpose of ensuring that a youth in foster care will be able to secure utility services at a residential property upon the youth’s 18th birthday, the disability of nonage of minors is removed for all youth who have reached 17 years of age, have been adjudicated dependent, and are in the legal custody of the Department of Children and Family Services through foster care or subsidized independent living. These youth are authorized to make and execute contracts, agreements, releases, and all other instruments necessary for the purpose of securing utility services at a residential property upon the youth’s 18th birthday. The contracts or other agreements made by the youth shall have the same effect as though they were the obligations of persons who were not minors. A youth seeking to enter into such contracts or agreements or execute other necessary instruments that are incidental to securing utility services must present an order from a court of competent jurisdiction removing the disabilities of nonage of the minor under this section.
