Can a girl move out of the house at age 17 and not be considered a runaway?
Depends on what state.
Is there a law that states a 17 year old can move out of their parents' house or would they still be considered a runaway?
Would it be considered running away for a girl at the age of 17 to move out into her boyfriend's house with his parent in the state of Texas?
answer it depends on what state you live in. mos states it is 18 however some allow you to at 17 and very few states you must be 19 or 21. check your state laws. In the state of Missouri your able to move out at age 17 with out parents' permision and with out being considered as a runaway. In the state of Georgia you can move out wihout your parents consent when you…
You are only considered a runaway if your parents do not know where you are. However, that is not to say that they cannot force you to come home. I am not very sure on moving out at 17 laws in Iowa. I have heard it's just a personal issue unless you are in danger, debt, or homeless... But I can't be for sure.
Is there a law that states whether or not a 17-year-old can move out of their parents home and into another stable home if they choose to or would they still be considered a runaway in Washington st?
A 17-year-old is a minor and therefore does not get to choose where they live. Ever heard of the Becca Law? It was passed in WA after a teenage runaway was murdered. It basically gave parents more 'power' in dealing with runaway/disobedient/truant children. You would be considered a runaway and you would be returned home.
If a girl is sixteen and she wants to move out with her twenty-one year old boyfriend and the sixteen year old's parents won't let them. can she run away?
Unless the 14 year old has been emancipated, which is every unlikely, the 14 year old is required to do whatever the parents want them to do. If the parents give permission for her to move, then she may do so. However, without her parents' permission, she would be considered a "Runaway", and the police may escort her home and potentially charge her with status offenses.
