    Hello there,

    Thanks for reaching out on our on our forum. We hope you’ve had some time to check out other similar responses to leaving home at 17. We are not legal experts; however, we recognize some states view 17 as more of a gray area. Meaning you may not be a legal adult, but the police may not pursue a 17 year-old runaway case so much. Another possibility is looking into emancipation. Some states offer it while others do not and it typically involves a court process. The first steps are often securing a job/legal source of income and talking to a lawyer. If you’d like to share your city/state, we can continue talking through possible options. We also encourage you to try out our Live Chat. Good luck!
