And of course mom can always TRY to get a change of the court order, or agreement from dad.
If it just can't wait one more year.

If I leave at 16 and don't they don't get me till I am 17 or say then 18, am I then out of the woods?

They can't go back and do anything retroactively can they?

Well yes that's basically correct, they are not gonna make you serve time at your parents house if that's what you mean. But at 16 you're really not allowed to leave, I mean even at 17 it is somewhat questionable. It might be good to meet with social services counselors to discuss your situation at least as a first step.

They can criminally charge the people who supported and harbored you. At 16 they can return you home and if you keep running away, jail you as an unruly child. At 17, as long as you are solely supporting yourself, as in paying for your own food, clothing, housing and rent without assistance you only need to notify police locally to your parents where you are. As it is unlikely you can do that, see above, those supporting you can be criminally charged.

Why is it that with their whole life in front of them so many kids are so anxious to leave early while still a minor?
Slow down and enjoy the last few months or years with your parents!

Because they have taken the values out of school we used to have and they have been replaced with the concept of just do what you want. We are a country full of lawbreakers, starting at the Federal Gov't and working its way down to street level drug dealers. They have lost all sense of purpose and morality in many cases. A friends second son, a sophomore in HS and on a HS team, with the expectation of getting good grades and going to college like his brother, decided to go to a party and do drugs. When he came home and was yelled at for it, he went into the basement and committed suicide. Until we stop being hamsters on a treadmill for 10% of the population, our kids will have only the values we teach them that stuck.

That is a terrible and sad story, but it sounds like the second son had much deeper problems than we all know.
I doubt one yell session would cause the child to act that way.

That is funny isnt it?
The big bad world isn't always so much better, as those kids find out, sometimes the hard way.
