My wife and I have a similar situation here in Maryland. Our 17-year old son turns 18 in Aug. We've had a stressful relationship with him for several years. We recently suspended his driving privileges due to his third vehicle accident in less than 9 months which resulted in his vehicle being totaled and thankfully, no injuries. He just graduated high school. Now, he is refusing to follow household rules and wants to move out. He wants to move in with a co-worker. He takes medication for a couple of mental health issues and has expressed a desire to stop taking it. From a legal standpoint, I understand we are legally liable for his actions until he turns 18 at which point he becomes emancipated. Is this always the case, even if he doesn't live with us? Second, is there anything we can do if he refuses to come home, other than call the police? Right now, we're just trying to get through the next two months and then I suppose he can do as he wishes when he turns 18. Any assistance is greatly appreciated!
