Technically they can turn you over to the state and pay for a foster family until you are 18.

I am leaving my parents house 4 weeks before my 17th birthday.

Will that cause a problem? I men thsy are not going to take me back for the last four weeks are they?

I need to go now for several reasons.

They can and will take you back if they find you while you are still 16.

My gf lives in Colorado and I plan to go with her and live.

Normally you need to be 18 to leave home.
Read all the posts above.

It's only a few months.

Sure if you want to be arrested and returned in addition to having her go to jail for harboring a runaway and possibly Mann Act violations that can put her in jail for years,and being required to register as a sexual predator.

Many 17 year olds are fully ready to fly the coop.
The law should be less restrictive.
That's the way it was in this country for decades. And it seemed to work just fine.

This thread is almost six years old. Your "me too" comment is pointless. If you want to rant I suggest Facebook or Twitter.

If you have your own legal question start your own thread.
