    RE: in GA 17 is considered an adult.. i think


    Thanks for reaching out to us for help. The national age of majority is 18. This means that until someone turns 18, they are considered a minor for legal purposes and are legally supposed to live where their legal guardian gives consent for them to go. We are not legal experts, but we can speak generally to your situation. It sounds like your gf wants to move out when she turns 17. If she does, she might be considered a runaway. This means her legal guardian can report her as a runaway to the police, who might pick her up and make her go home. In addition, if she stays with you, you could get in trouble for harboring a runaway, which is considered a criminal offence. However, in some states, police will not force a 17 year old to go home if they are in a safe place. Laws vary based on region, so one way to find out more about the laws in Georgia is to call your local police non-emergency number to ask questions. We are here to listen and support you in any way that we can, and wish you the best of luck.
