The Age of Majority in the State of Nevada is 19. So technically, a 17 year old cannot leave home without getting in trouble with the law.

You can be returned home at age 17. If it is unsafe, they can put you into foster care. The state takes a dim view on minors living alone and unsupervised.

You will only be able to leave your parents home at 17 with permission. the parents can call the police if you leave before you are 18.

No, in Georgia you may leave home at 17 (because you are treated as an adult for some crimes and can go to prison). But you can't be forced to leave home until 18.

Yes, you can get in trouble for moving out at the age of 17. You must have your parents permission before you move out.

I say that at the age of 17 is because at the age 17 they go out on dates and then maybe her friend or her boyfriend might give her drugs and has you all know drugs are really bad. So let them out when they are like 18 19 or maybe 20!!!!

Until you are an adult, Texas law says the parents are responsible for the minor and where they live. Seventeen is not the same age as eighteen.

Yes, in Georgia you can leave home at 17 (because you can go to jail at that age), and you will not get in trouble and cannot be forced to return, but you can't be kicked out until age 18.

16 but if the minor is deemed at risk from a person outside the home, then the minor can be forced to return home and prevented from leaving until the age of 17. And you would have to stay in school regardless of where you live.

That depends on the age of consent where you reside.

No, at the age of 17 you can leave Texas for California and not be considered a runaway. However, if you have not graduated school at the age of 17 and do not enroll in another state you can get in trouble.

You probaly could break him/her but at that age I recommend just leaving him/her be.

can you leave the home at 17 if you have evidents of being abused

User Avatar

Legally no, as the legal age of majority is 18, with the exception of Alabama and Nebraska 19, Mississippi and Pennsylvania 21. Whether or not there would be any "trouble" would depend upon the action taken by the minor's parents and the circumstances concerning the minor leaving the family residence.

User Avatar

If a crime is committed then sometimes yes! For leaving your parents residence for good then no legally you should be at home and your parents can still legally tell you what to do!

Georgia is a unique situation. The age of majority is 18, but because a child can go to jail at age 17 in Georgia, that creates a bit of a dichotomy. So, a child can actually leave home at 17 and cannot be forced to return by the authorities and cannot get in legal trouble for leaving or charged as a runaway. But the parents cannot force the child to leave until age 18. Be aware that many people are unaware of this situation (even some rookie police officers), so if you hear otherwise, simply ask to speak to that officer's supervisor. Also, just because you can leave at 17 doesn't make you an adult; you can't sign leases or contracts until age 18. Bottom line: They can leave at 17, but you cannot kick them out until 18.

The legal age of majority in Texas is 18. As to the issue of "legal trouble" that would depend upon what action the parent chose to take and the circumstances pertaining to why the minor moved from the home.

User Avatar

Only if you have your parents permission and you're in a safe and appropriate environment. Otherwise, you have to wait until you're 18.

no the legal age to have sex is 16 in England and wales, Northern Ireland the age is 17. Jersey the legal age is 18. sodepending on where you come from it should be fine. -x-

User Avatar

No, you cannot get in trouble. First off, isn't it at the age of 18 or older that you would get in trouble? Also, the only way you can get in trouble is if your boyfriends parents get the cops involved.

Depends on how old the girlfriend is. The age of consent is 17 there.
