The legal age would be the age of 18, which is the age of majority. That is because that is the age at which a person may form or execute any sort of binding, enforceable contracts or agreements, or take on legal obligations.

Below the age of 18, you would need someone else to form the LLC for you, but since there would still be issues of the enforceability of any agreements you had with that person (such as to turn it over to you later; to follow your instructions; etc.) would be of suspect enforceability, there are issues with this approach as well. There are certain things, like voting, military service, driving (in many states) that one must wait to be 18 to legally do.

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
