As long as your parents have legal custody of you, they have the authority to decide where you live until you reach the age of majority (usually 18, but in some states it's older--never younger). If you leave home without their permission, they can have your picked up by the authorities and returned home. Whoever takes you in when you runaway, could also potentially be facing charges. This relative could petition the court for custody, but generally speaking, unless they can prove the parents to be unfit in some way, it's rather unlikely that they would be successful. Of course, I don't know the details of your situation.

At the age of sixteen in Ohio, a child can move out of the house and into a family member's home only with the permission of the parents. The parents are still responsible for the child until they are eighteen and may have to pay child support to the other family member.

Legally SIGN a document for a family member . . ., NO, they may not sign a family member's signature FOR the family member. That is forgery!Although the Notary laws of some states differ, to eliminate any possible taint of conflict-of-interest, it is NOT a good idea for a Notary to WITNESS a family member's signature either.

No, you cannot legally get a gift of equity from a non family member. A gift of equity always has tax consequences, such as capital gains.

Not generally. Rarely an exception can be made when the family member is disabled and needs to be cared for by another family member and that family member is willing to give it.
