    is this sentence correct grammatically ?

    It is the first time for a person away from his/her parents, in many cases. (If it is incorrect, please give me your suggestions for improvement)

    I would add "to be" between "person" and "away".

    Welcome to the forums, atheak.

    'Grammarly' is not an English word. I have edited your title accordingly.

    Hello, atheak.
    Welcome to UsingEnglish.com.
    I agree with Mike, and I'd like to point out that the word you should use is 'grammatically', not 'grammarly'.
    (Please be more careful about punctuation and capitalization next time.)

    (Edit) Thank you, Rover. I didn't notice your post.

    That's OK. This happens occasionally:

    I wrote the first two lines and posted them. Then I edited the title and decided to add to my post so it disappeared from the board. In the short time my post was out of sight you had seen the incorrect title and responded to it. When I saved my edited post it appeared before yours. It wasn't there when you answered.
