Can A 17 Year Old Leave Home Without Parental Consent?
Yes a child can leave home at 17 without parental consent. However, any child considering leaving home should realise that they are not capable at that age of earning enough money to support themselves nor do they necessarily have the knowledge required to enable them to exist in the world. Children leaving home without support are likely to end up sometimes in serious trouble. If they are leaving home to go to a boyfriend/girlfriend then I would question that person’s maturity – do they realise the cost of living!
