  • Leave home

    Hey basically Iam 19 and Iam planning on leaving home I honestly can't cope here.. I get emotional abused day and night I'm stuck in the middle my parents treat me like a prisoner I'm not allowed to do anything at all and Iam bloody 19!!! I know were Iam going but Iam worried that my parents would get the police involved but they. Can't do much before Iam an adult now so I should be able to do whatever I like isn't it?!

    Re: Leave Home

    Hi there,
    We're sorry to hear that you are being emotionally abused. You don't deserve to be mistreated.
    You ask about whether you could get in trouble for leaving home. In most states, you become a legal adult at age 18. There fore, you would be completely free to leave home when you choose to.

    Often there are other things to think about, such as where you will go when you leave, how you will earn money, etc. If you have more questions or would like to discuss a plan for where to go when you leave home, please feel free to give us a call anytime.

    Good luck!
