Legislation in Denmark

Danish legislation establishes clear boundaries for children's rights and the protection of children. It is against the law to have sex with a minor, i.e. a person under the age of 15. Young people must be 16 before they are allowed to buy cigarettes and alcohol. Young people must be 18 before they are allowed to buy alcohol in restaurants and discotheques.
Leaving home

According to Danish law, people have full legal capacity at 18. This means the can take a driving test, borrow money and are legally responsible for themselves. Many young people leave home once they turn 18 to live on their own or together with others their own age.
Advice and guidance

It is possible to get professional help to solve difficult problems. Both parents and children can seek advice and guidance - together or own their own. Ask your municipal authority or contact a crisis line or a telephone helpline. These services are free and callers can remain anonymous.
