  • 15 runaway trying for emancipation at 16

    I'm 15 runaway. I ran away because my mother beat me and called me worthless, asshole, mother********er and a lot more. Also have called my girlfriend lots of things. I was just asking if at 16 which is in 5 months if I can get emancipated? Even tho I ran away and nobody knows where I am. I'm living with a friend right now .

    RE: 15 runaway trying for emancipation at 16

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out to NRS for help. It sounds like you are in a dangerous and scary situation. You’re brave to reach out for some guidance. So let’s see how we can help you out.

    We are confidential and anonymous at the National Runaway Safeline, but we also are mandated reporters. This means that if you were to call us and discuss abuse and gave us any identifying information, we would be required to file an abuse report. We do this because we want you to be safe and out of a dangerous situation. This is also something to keep in mind if you have been thinking about reporting the physical and verbal abuse but were confused or nervous about doing it alone. We are here to help.

    It also looks as if you are interested in emancipation. Emancipation laws differ by location and the process is generally tricky. Our liners have emancipation resources for each state that are easily accessible by calling our hotline at 1-800-RUN-AWAY (786-2929). Also, you can call our hotline for more information about running away including some basic facts and shelter resources. If you aren’t able to call in, you can chat with us through our website (www.1800runaway.org ) from 4.30pm-11.30pm Central Time. We look forward to your call or chat.

    Best of luck to you,

    NRS

      15 wanting to leave and get emancipated

      I am 15 and I want to leave I have a place to go. I am still in school I will be 16 in less then a month. I'm not really sure what getting emancipated means. If I leave and move in with a friend and the mom wants to enroll me in school can she? Pleas help me I would be very grateful

        RE: 15 wanting to leave and get emancipated

        Hello there,

        Thank you for reaching out to us. Although we are not legal experts, we do know that emancipation laws vary from state to state. In most states you must be able to provide for yourself financially, living independently of your legal guardian and petition the courts to alter your legal status. Emancipation can be a lengthy and sometimes expensive process.

        You mentioned that you are thinking about moving in with a friend and her mom. You do have the right to go to school regardless of your living situation under the McKinny Vento Act. They must give you a desk and a classroom although at some point they may require enrollment paperwork from your legal guardian. Would your mom be willing to sign over guardianship to your friend’s mom? If not, you may need to contact a lawyer and see what your rights are.

        We would be more than happy to look up any emancipation laws for you and provide any referrals that you need. We can be reached at any time at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or by live chat at www.1800runaway.org from 4:30pm-11:30pm Central Standard Time. We look forward to hearing from you!
