My question involves emancipation laws for the State of: California and Washington
Hi, I'm 17 years old (18 in January 2010) and I wasn't exactly sure on where to post this but this seem like the most appropriate forum. I'm not looking to be emancipated since my parents still wish to provide for me. What I'm looking at seems more like "private fostering". My parents have approved for me to live with my boyfriend and under the care of their parents in order to attend school (We've known each other for 5-6, maybe 7 years, they know each other). I'm going to start in a program at a community college in Washington called Running Start in order to transfer into the University of Washington. I've heard that 17 year olds are able to move out in order for school. Here's my problem though:
I have to enroll in a high school in Washington in order to enroll into the college program. With my parent's consent of moving in with my boyfriend's parents, can they sign for me if there's paper work?
Since I'm 17, can I simple move up to Washington without dealing with a social worker? What is the process for all of this?
