If you are 17 and live with your parents but have a bad home life (physical/verbal abuse, etc.) can you move in with a friend without parent consent. The person would still be attending school, and work supporting their selves and they would be safe. Keeping in mind they are safe and the parents know where they are, but the parents do not want the child there and haven't given their consent. Would the law take the child and bring them back to their parent?
