Okay, so my family has been very rude and emotionally abusive these past couple years. it’s mostly my dad, he yells at me, picks on me, insults me, and he just doesn’t respect me, period. I don’t want to deal with it anymore. I’m 17 and I plan to move out as soon as I’m 18, but yesterday I have reached my breaking point with him. I don’t know how much more i can take of this. Is there ANY way AT ALL that I can legally leave my house and maybe go live with a friend at this age?? I feel stuck here and I just don’t want to be here.
Well actually you can't move out legally until you are 18. But after the age of 16 the police can't look for you even after 48 hours because you might have left of your own choice and if you can provide for yourself (because you can already work) then they can not under any circumstance go looking for you.
