Is there a law that can force 17 year old to live with parents or legal gaurdians if they are still in high school or in any case of 17 year olds being forced or getting into law trouble for wanting to live where they choose to or want to.
Yes, certainly. They have not reached the age of majority and are not yet emancipated - therefore, the court can mandate where and with whom they will live.
