So feel free to move it if it's not in the right place.
Mmk. My boyfriend really hates living at home. Right now he's 16, but this upcoming summer (almost a year from now), he'll be 17. He has a steady part time job and believe he'd be able to make it living on his own, financially. This is sortof a new idea, but we just have some thoughts on how it would work.
We really have no idea what the laws in NY are concerning parental rights I guess you would say. If he's 17, and wants to move out for his senior year of high school, can his mom stop him? Or does he legally have no rights concerning the situation until he's 18? We're pretty sure it'd be the case that she would try to stop him, we're not sure what limits she'd take, but it'd be my assumption that she would go as far as getting the police involved. She doesn't like the feeling of losing control over her son. Which is pretty much the reason he's not happy there - she doesn't want to let him grow up.
Either way, I tried to look this up online somewhere and came up with nothing, as I'm not really sure how to go about finding out laws and things like that. So. Any help is appreciated
