    Default What Can the State Do if I Leave My Placement

    My question involves emancipation laws for the State of: Michigan

    I am in a program called SIL (Supervised Independent Living). I am currently sixteen years old. In SIL I receive about 500 dollars a month in which I then pay a care provider 300 for rent.

    Once this school year over over I wish to move out into my own place. I will be 17 and a half. I am a ward of the court and my worker doesnt want me to do that. She said they will cut off my money. I really dont care about the money. My Aunt owns a house and said I can move in for 400 dollars a month which I know I can afford.

    I will still be attending school, have my own place, and a job. If they find out where I am can they put me into a foster care, residential, juvenile, or will they just emancipate me from the system. By the time they find out where I am I will be almost 18 in which then I will be at the age of majority anyways. Will they even waste their time?

    I was checking... and the expert law crystal ball is STILL out for repairs.

    We cannot tell you what will or won't happen. However, you could be returned to the foster care system until you are 18.

    Do you think they will search for me? I have no parents so will the state really push towards finding me?

    I doubt that the state has many resources to throw at 17-1/2 year old runaways; but I have no way of knowing what would happen in your case.
