"OCGA 19-7-1. (a) Until he reaches the age of majority, the child shall remain under the control of his parents, who are entitled to his services and the proceeds of his labor. In the event that a court has awarded custody of the child to one parent, only the parent who has custody of the child is entitled to his services and the proceeds of his labor.
OCGA 19-7-2. It is the joint and several duty of each parent to provide for the maintenance, protection, and education of his or her child until the child reaches the age of majority, dies, marries, or becomes emancipated, whichever first occurs, except as otherwise authorized and ordered pursuant to subsection (e) of Code Section 19-6-15 and except to the extent that the duty of the parents is otherwise or further defined by court order."
Therefore, you must be eighteen years old to leave home and be absolutely sure nothing can be done. Parents may seek out a court order to return any of their children under the age of eighteen, assuming they have custody, to their home. However, many people under the age of eighteen have left their homes before, simply because their parents did not seek out such extensive assistance. Those I know who moved out between the ages of 16-17 had the police request they come back home, but did nothing about it, since they were in safe enviroments and the parents had not filed for a court order.
To prevent being forced home under the age of eighteen, you can seek emancipation, in which case you must convince a judge that there is good legal reason for you to be able to leave your home. If you become pregnant, you can marry without parental consent and after the marriage, you are considered emancipated.
