Best Answer

No. Placement in a foster home is a court ordered mandate. If you were to leave and live with your parent, you could subject them to legal action. What you can do is have you parent petition the court for custody or you yourself petition the court to be heard.

It depends upon the custodial order. A minor cannot legally leave the residence of the primary custodial parent unless the other parent shares equal joint physical custody. Even so, the move generally must be an equitable agreement. A parent giving permission for a minor to leave the custodial residence must also inform the non custodial parent of the move to allow said parent to voice an objection and/or file a formal petition of opposition in the appropriate court.
