Yes the police can get involved and bring you back home unless you have been emancipated since you are not legally an adult until the age of 18 so I suggest that you go back home until your 18 or get your parents consent to move out of their house to avoid all legal action hope this helps...Good Luck and God Bless!!

AnswerUnless you PROVE that you are in danger of physical or emotional harm being at home with your parents, they most likely will make you go back home.


In some some states the police can get involve and can force you to go home,but some states has a age limit of 19 or 21 before you can leave home.but I do know that in Virginia if you leave home at 17 there is nothing your parents,law enforcement,or juvenile courts can do.cause if they bring you back,you just leave again,and the law is to busy doing other things,then waste time on you.I know this for a fact cause a friend of mine live's in Bristol Virginia,and I am an attorney who live's in Boston,and know some laws in Virginia as far as juvenile law is concern,but any way his 17 year old daughter took off 2 months ago and he called the sheriff department,the deputy who showed up had experience with juveniles and is a juvenile probate officer.the deputy told him that there is nothing they could do about his daughter,she is of age according to Virginia to make her own decision's.the deputy also told my friend that no matter if they know where she is at or may be at,they will not interfere,the only way that the law can inerfere is if she got into trouble with the law,but other than that she is on her own.
