if I am in a foster home in Massachusetts a ward of the state, can I leave at age 17?
Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to answer your question.

The age at which the ward of the state is considered an adult is 18 and at that time you can leave foster home.

I wish you the best of luck!

what are the chances florida will enforce the return of the 17yr old?


 

Thank you for your follow up.

I happened to be a Florida licensed attorney and I can tell you with absolute certainty that Florida would enforce a return of 17 year old who is a ward of state and ran away from foster home.

I wish you the best of luck!
