      Hmmm, wonder where my response went.

      This post was one of a number of hijacking posts on a thread about Georgia laws so I assume that this fellow was in Georgia as well - if not, he will need to say so.

      I moved his post to a new thread as multiple posters in the thread he hijacked were told to do, and locked the original thread as it appears that no 17 year old in Georgia - or possibly the US - understands what the words, Start your own thread, mean.

      I also told him that the laws in GA have actually tightened up since the 6 year old thread he attached his question to was originally posted, and he can move out at 17 only if he has the permission of his parents. If not, he stays where he is until he is 18.
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

        I think your response went into its own thread. I saw it after I posted.

            This was posted in the emancipation forum & if state is Ga -

            Quoting Georgia Code 15-11-202.

            (2) A certified copy of the minors birth certificate;

            (3) The name and last known address of the minors parents, guardian, or custodian;

            (4) The minors present address and length of residency at that address;

            (5) A declaration by the minor indicating that he or she has demonstrated the ability to manage his or her financial affairs; the minor may include any information he or she considers necessary to support the declaration; and

            (6) A declaration by the minor indicating that he or she has the ability to manage his or her personal and social affairs; the minor may include any information he or she considers necessary to support the declaration.

              It should be noted, however, that the state of Georgia has actively chosen to make it more difficult for a minor to meet the requirements for emancipation and few, if any, applications will be approved.

                I agree with that.
