A parent is responsible (as in a lawsuit) for the child's actions unless he/she becomes emancipated, joins the military, or gets married (requiring parental consent in Georgia if under 18). Yes, the age of majority is 18; however, a child can leave at 17. A parent cannnot force them to stay. But they cannot be kicked out until age 18. Call the police and ask. The police do have jurisdiction in this matter, because the child can be charged as a runaway and sent to juvenile detention if just 16 (or less). In Georgia, if the child is 17, the police will not do anything, and the child may leave without consent. But ther parents cannot kick the child out until age 18. Absolutely, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. If a police officer says no, ask to speak to his/her immediate supervisor. In Georgia, a person can now go to jail at age seventeen. That created a unique twist in the law. Parents are responsible for a child until age 18, so they will still be responsible for the child's actions; however, they cannnot force the child to stay should the child wish to leave. Parents also cannot kick the child out until age 18.
