If you are 17-year-old in the State of Georgia can you legally move in with a friend in New York without consent?

Although not widely known, in Georgia, a teen can go to jail at age 17. Because of that, the police will not force a person who is 17 to go back home if he/she leaves. The parents cannot kick the child out until age 18, but the child can leave at 17, and therre is nothing the parents can do to stop it.
