I am a person above the age of 18, dating someone that is 16 years old (turns 17 in a couple of months) and I am located in Georgia.
First of all, as far as I know the legal age of consent in Georgia is 16, correct? It's not like we're doing anything anyway.
My girlfriend told her mom she was going to a town 5 hours away with her best friend and her best friend's mom -- but in reality, she went with her best friend and me. Long story short we got busted and I took her immediately home when her mom called and told us to do so. I never took her out of state and she went willingly on this trip.
Is this something I could get in trouble with?
Her mom has forbidden us to see each other or talk to each other, along with her best friend. Which I understand completely and accept, however I do intend on talking to her.
But what would happen if we started seeing each other behind her mom's back?
What problems would I face? What problems would she face?
At the very least I know I cannot step on her mom's property or I could get criminal trespassing.
There was 'rumors' floating around about a minor being able to make legal decisions at 17 in Georgia (supposedly a new law), where a minor could move out and do what they wanted at that age. The most I've heard of it is rumor, so I was wondering if anyone has heard anything about this and could please point me in the correct direction of some up-to-date accurate information.
