The age of majority in GA is 18. You can leave home at 17 if your parents agree to allow it or you've been emancipated in some manner.

My Answer: Actually, a 17-year old in Georgia can now go to prison (as an example, one may recall the high school football star who has already served three years of a 10 year sentence for being with a 15 year old). This creates a loophole in Georgia law. You cannot be kicked out until age 18 (or legally sign Contracts), but you may leave on your own at 17 and cannot be forced to return or be charged as a runaway. Don't believe it? Call the police and ask.

Actually because i am dealing with the same situation.

They changed the law in 2009 because the parents were complaining about their children leaving and the parents still being responsible for the child's actions.

I Have just very recently tried to leave but my father went to a juvenille judge and they said that you can not leave in the state of Georgia till you are 18 but you can leave when your 17 with parental consent. And the whole you cannot be charged as a runaway is not true either. You can be sent to juvy. even before they made this law in 09 your parents could still try to prove you as an unruly child and make you stay at home till you were 18. anways bottom line, without parental consent you cannot leave your house until you are 18 unless you are emancipated, or you get pregnant and get married
