    RE: im 17 and wanna move out


    Thanks for reaching out to us for help. It sounds like you are in a frustrating situation at home and you are thinking about running away and moving in with your girlfriend in Georgia. Running away is a big step. Since you are under the age of 18, if you leave home you could be considered a runaway. This means that your parent or legal guardian could call the police, who might force you to return home. Running away is not a crime, however anyone who allows you to stay with them could risk criminal charges for harboring a runaway, which means your girlfriend and her family could get in trouble if your parents press charges.
    We are not legal experts. Laws are different from state to state, county to county, city to city. In some areas, police might not take a runaway report for youth who are close to turning 18, or they might take a report but not force a youth to return home. How a local police department responds to the situation can vary drastically. A good way to find out the laws in your area is to call your local police and ask what their policies are.
    We are here to listen and support you in any way that we can. It is understandable that you are feeling this way. If you decide to leave, do you have a plan for how you will survive or where you will stay if things didn’t work out with your girlfriend for any reason? If you need resources, or you want to talk about your plan, don’t hesitate to reach out. We are looking forward to your call, and wish you the best of luck.
