running away to another country legally

Travel Forums General Talk running away to another country legally

so i've been thinking about starting a new life and move out to another country, i've found a runaway partner, but i'm only 17 (i already have an identity card that registered me as legal citizen so if i runaway with my identity card with me, there's a big chance i could get tracked) , and since i don't want to be tracked down by my parents and they'll probably call the police, should i create a fake id? like, i'm from a country in asia and i plan to move out to australia or maybe usa, should i create a new identity card that declare im an austrlian citizen / us citizen (i know it's difficult) so i won't be tracked? I have two options for me :

a) runway now and create a fake identity and maybe create a new identity card as the country im running away to citizen? because i haven't finished my school so i thought i need to create a new identity card and if possible, birth certificate to register to a school in a country i'm running away to. this might not work out since i dont know how do i'll get money to live there, (because i dont have any specific skill as i havent graduated from school).

b) wait till i turned 18 so i can "legally" move out without fearing about being tracked, get my education done, and find a college in a country i'm running away to. in this way i dont have to fake my identity or anything, because i think, even if my parents found out where am i running away to, they can't really ask me to go back to my country / have a right to do that because i'm already 18 and have a right to decide my decision. but in this option, i fear that as time pass by, my parents build a plan for me (like, what college i should be going to, what they hope i could do from learning from college) so i fear that they'll just going to spend their money on my education but got no result for that because their daughter is just going to runaway anyway. i dont want to waste their money for me. i dont know how to explain it but i hope you can uunderstand what im trying to say....

if i dont choose plan a) i might lost my runaway partner, and its pretty hard to find one from my country, and its hard to find one that you can trust, my runaway partner didnt want to wait until next year because she just wants to runaway this year.

please help me out and give me advices, you can send me a private message too to talk about this if you want, thank you.

With all due respect Plan (a) is completely idiotic. You have ZERO clue about the issues involved.

Plan (b) has been done by countless people, it's not unique in the slightest. Graduate. Get a job. Save money. Go travelling. You'll be an adult and you'll be your own person, you can do whatever you wish.

Good luck with whatever happens.

Cheers,
Terry

Yeah, have to agree with Terry - option a) is not going to work out. Give up on that and start focussing on what you do when you turn 18.

If you want to study overseas, look into the costs of that and start saving up. If Australia is a preferred option, be aware that it is not a cheap one and you will need considerable funds to cover you. If you plan to emigrate to Australia afterwards, then you should study something that will help you get a skilled migrant visa.

I understand that plan A is tempting, but don't do that, use patience, this investment will not fail you. At the same time, after you are 18, it is smart to move out of your parents' house. Do not be afraid to achieve to dreams.
