Re: Florida - Legal to Move Out in Florida at Age 17
legally, you can't leave before your 18th birthday, period.
the fact of the matter is; if you are 3 weeks away from being 18, not many government agencies are going to get all excited about hunting down a person that is going to be legal in 3 weeks. Don't take that as they can't because they can and you could actually be charged with whatever they call "running away" anymore.
It would be best to wait to avoid any possible problems but if you can't, hang on as long as possible. The closer to your birthday, the less chance anybody will care.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
