Can a 17 year old legally leave his/her's parent's house without any legal action in the state of Georgia?
Find answers to your legal question.





Can a 17 year old legally leave his/her's parent's house without any legal action in the state of Georgia?

the question pretty much explains it all. When a girl/boy reaches the age of 17, can they walk out of their parent's house at the age of 17 without the possibility of being arrest. Could the parents call the police and have the child brought back to them, or, in the state of Georgia, is the legal age 17 since you can be tried as an adult in a court of law. Any answers are helpful, but please back it out with some sort of source if you can. Thanks!

It doesn't matter what age you can be tried as an adult, the age of majority is 18 and you are under your parents custody until then. Yes if they report it you will be considered to be a runaway and brought back.

Yes. In eleven states, including georgia, a juvenile is legally defined as someone UNDER the age of 17. Therefore you are legally emancipated (from your parents) and can do pretty much anything every other adult can do, except buy alcohol :). Edit: the person below me is incorrect, if you are legally an adult and you leave it is not considered "running away" and they cannot force you to return.
