    Once you are 19 and competent, you are your own person. You do just about anything legal, and that includes going or not going to church. Your previous guardian is not your guardian any more (unless a court say you are not legally competent).

    But .. at age 18 in Alabama, you are still bound by your guardian's decisions.

    The age of majority in Alabama is 19 not 18. So answer is Yes.

    Legally, she can't, but in terms of home discipline, she can. In other words, she can't force you to attend church, but there are other pressures she can bring to bear by virtue of being an adult with authority over someone that lives in her home. If she pays for your phone service, for example, she can withdraw it at any time until you comply with her wishes.

    There's an old saying that if you're not paying the rent or the mortgage and you're living under somebody's roof do you live by their rules

    In Alabama, all black people are "apprentices" until they reach their 30th birthday. Then they are free, once they pay their boss for letting them work for them until then.

    Yes, if it is a house rule that everyone in the household needs to go to church.

    Her house, her rules.

    Don't like her rules, move out.
