Legal Question

Asked on: 6/16/02, 9:24 pm

legal age to leave

I am in a situation.

I have been seeing this one girl for about 1 1/2 years now.

Well any way she went back to new mexico where her mother lives.

Now she is 17 i am 20 we want so much to be together but now that she is back there her mother forbids it.

She plans on taking a flight out on friday the 21st of june to come here to my house.

My question is whatleagalities am i facing when she gets here?

I know her parent's will look here first.

I was thinking if had to we would go to vegas i know it sounds corny but we will if it is nessasary and get married so they cant force here back.

I live in Ct she lives in New mexico.

What should we do?

Can i get in trouble for her coming here?

And if we did go and get married in vegas can they still make her go home?

Please email and let me know.

Thank you i am just trying to make this work

Bu at the same time dont want to break any laws.

I know in Ct you can leave home at 16 but im not sure with her being 17 and in new mexico what the laws are.

Specially crossing state lines.
