I am 19 years old and I want to move out. I had already taken all of my belongings to my best friend's family who have an extra room for me free of charge. However, my parents discovered my plans and they are furious. Both reacted differently, but they basically said that if I move out, then they will call the police on and sue my college, my therapist at that college,my best friend, and my boyfriend for brainwashing me and taking me away from them. However, they merely supported me in my decision and provided help, both provided their homes. I developed this plan on my own. They also said that if I move out they will hunt me down and take me. Now I feel trapped and Im too scared to get out. Is this considered false imprisonment? Could I get a restraining order or sue them? I recognize that I am an adult and can do what I want, but I am too scared about what they'll do once I walk out.
You're an adult. You can live wherever you want. If you leave over their objections, be prepared to be cut off financially. But other than withholding money from you, there's nothing they can do to stop you from leaving.
I agree with Ms. Killian. Your fear is not rational. On one hand you admit you know you are an adult AND you know you can leave (you know there is no basis for any of these lawsuits) but on the other, you are stressed that they can do something. This leads to the concern that they have concerns about your ability to be out on your own right now. If you are going to do it, do it...but be prepared for whatever financial or other consequences that come with it as Ms. Killian mentioned.
