    Hello,
    We are glad that you reached out to us for help. This sound like a stressful situation to be in, it is never good to have your parents threaten you like that.
    Something to consider is because you are over the age of majority in all states you could just move out and live on your own. Your parents shouldn’t be able to have any legal authority over you and thus calling the police wouldn’t do anything for them. If you have any other concerns or questions we would be happy to talk to you at 1-800-786-2929.
    Thanks for reaching out,
    NRS

    Hello,
    Thank you for writing to us here at the National Runaway Safeline.

    Since you are 18 you are more than likely considered a legal adult which means that you can move out if you want to and you won’t be considered a runaway or missing. As a legal adult, you have a right to make your own decisions about where you live. if by chance you are reported as missing you can contact the police to assure them of your safety and that you are not missing.
    We can help you make a plan for how to deal with your situation and help you find resources to land on your feet. Having a plan for where you will live and how you will survive once you move out can be very helpful. NRS is here to help and here to listen. If you would like to talk more about your situation, please contact 1-800-Runaway (786-2929) or www.1800runaway.org

    Take care,
    NRS

    I’m 18, I don’t know what to my parents want me to send me back to my country. Their holding me down I can’t see my boyfriend at all, my sisters blackmailed and me as well. My parents believe them, and yesterday my sister told my dad about my past well the tip of the iceberg. I want to runaway I really do. It’s the point where I’m constantly feeling depressed and sad. My dreams have shown me death. I have no one to talk to at home, I’m judged at home. I don’t know who to go to if I runaway and I don’t have family

Having a plan for where you will live and how you will survive once you move out can be very helpful. Moving can be a huge step, and you don’t have to be alone. Some steps you can take towards independence might be to find employment if you don’t have an income, or to save up money for moving expenses. It can also be helpful to research rents in your area, find a roommate, or make a budget. Another thing you might want to consider is what kinds of things you depend on your parents for currently such as tuition expenses for school, or health insurance, and whether they would continue to provide those things after you leave. There may be social service agencies in your area that can help meet some of these needs, such as Transitional Living Programs, a kind of shelter where young adults can live and get services to help them transition to independent living. We are here to listen and help however we can.

    Hello,
    Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. We are not legal experts nor are we affiliated with the police so we can only speak generally about what could happen if a youth leaves home without the consent of a guardian. Leaving home without parental consent (running away) is not a crime, so the police will not arrest you. If you do leave home without permission your guardian does have the right to file a runaway report. Running away is not a crime it is a status offence (something that only a minor can get in trouble for: truancy, buying cigarettes, etc.) this means that if you have any interaction with the police they will simply return you home. On the other hand the people that you are found to be staying with could face legal consequences that vary depending on your state. You can find out more about how runaway’s reports are carried out by contacting your local police department.
    We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time. If there is anything that you think we can do to help, please let us know.
    Best wishes,
    NRS

    Hi there. Thanks for joining the forum. It sounds like you have or are planning to leave home soon. Although we are not legal experts the age of majority in Texas is 18. This typically means that you have the liberty to leave or move out of your parents’ home with or without permission. This should be regardless if you are a student or not. If you would like to talk a bit more about your situation please feel free to reach out to us via phone at 1800-runaway or come chat with us at 1800runaway.org. All the best, NRS.
