The legal age of majority in Georgia is 18. Authorities generally will not get involved unless the juvenile is found to be in unacceptable or dangerous circumstances. However, the parents can petition the court for an order to have the minor taken into custody and returned to the family home or remanded to a juvenile facility. A minor who crosses state lines without parental permission is guilty of a federal violation, and authorities may take the minor into custody and extradite them back to their home state to be placed in the custody of the stte juvenile authorities. (18 USC 2243, 18 USC 2423)
