I'm 17 and I want to move out, but my parents won't give me

I'm 17 and I want to move out, but my parents won't give me their permission. I can support myself and I have somewhere to live, and I've heard from a few people that once you're 17 or 17 1/2 you can move out and my parents couldn't do anything. Is this true? And if they can't, could they prosecute the person I move in with?

Regarding this snotty email from the opposing council's law

Hi again. Regarding this snotty email from the opposing council's law firm last week ....."On Thu, Sep 8, 2016 at 2:56 PM, Nikki Ebbers wrote:Mr. Richel,We once again ask that you reply to any comments you may have with respect to the agreement reflected in the Matrimonial Property Consent Judgment and the revised Parenting Consent Order which was revised to deal with your changes in circumstances. The Affidavit of Service is a minor procedural matter and can be dealt with when Mr. Kraus returns to the office. Mr. Kraus is away from the office for an undetermined length of time. An agreement was reached with respect to the division of matrimonial property and your lawyer has had the Matrimonial Property Consent Judgment since May. Your delay in finalizing the matter is inexcusable. If you intend to sign the Matrimonial Property Consent Judgment by yourself rather than with a lawyer, let us know and we will revise the Matrimonial Property Consent Judgment, so you can sign it for yourself and we shall also add a signature line for the lawyer for the bankruptcy trustee, both of whom have approved the Matrimonial Property Consent Judgment. We remind you that we are not your solicitors and shall not and cannot provide any legal advice to you. The advice you received form Ms. Hancheruk is something we cannot comment about as it is advice that she provided to you.

We will not communicate with you again regarding the Affidavit of Service until Mr. Kraus returns to the office. Thank you, ***** ***** Assistant to Michael Kraus, Q.C. and Wendy Young"**As you have overlapping expertise with both divorce/custody and bankruptcy, can you please take your best guess as to why opposing council is working so hard to take all of my possessions that remain at my former residence, and get my name off the title of the house, prior to any cooperation with a parenting plan or custody agreement? My former wife is an accountant, and has been previously married (I was not), and it is safe to assume that their bullying is somehow related to money. Perhaps their efforts will open me up for future attacks of unwarranted spousal support (as I am unemployed now), or retroactive child custody payments? Opposing council stated many times during a so called "settlement" meeting in May (that came with NO results), that he does not advise going to court. Why??? I am only an engineer, but suspect I am completely naive about what happens (as in negative impact on me and/or future with my 4 boys) when the only leverage I have left (my name also on the title of a house I built), is removed with this aggressive property order initiative.

Please help. I have a complex situation. I am in bankruptcy

Hi. Please help. I have a complex situation. I am in bankruptcy and a divorce (and currently out of work). The opposing council's secretary just emailed back. This file has gone nowhere in 14 months. Why are they trying to bully me into signing a property order in absence of an affidavit of service?I am also not impressed with the tone of her email. I have been working hard at cooperation (vs a 'litigation' attitude).**"Nikki Ebbers2:56 PM (1 hour ago)to me, Wendy, MichaelMr. Richel,We once again ask that you reply to any comments you may have with respect to the agreement reflected in the Matrimonial Property Consent Judgment and the revised Parenting Consent Order which was revised to deal with your changes in circumstances.
