      Hi there,

      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. It seems there is a lot that you are faced with right now and you could be feeling very frustrated with your current lack of space.

      While we are not experts on the law, 18 is generally the age that an individual may leave home without parent permission. If you are under 18 and leave home, your parent/guardian may file you as a runaway and you may be returned home. Also, those you stay with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. For more specifics on the law, the local non-emergency police or legal aid may better answer legal questions. We would be glad to offer support, explore options, and connect you with local resources if there are any available in your area. We are happy to help in any way that we can. You can contact us further by giving us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or live chatting with us through our website, https://www.1800runaway.org/. We hope to hear from you soon!

      Best of luck,
      NRS

    hi, so um i'd like advice on my current situation? i am currently 14 years old. i am a minor, and i turn 15 in around three months. i deal with depression and anxiety due to issues at home, and have diagnosed social anxiety, which is irrelevant to my mental illness, but I am aware that I have social anxiety issues because of trauma from the social dynamic at home. i have a four year plan, so i can move out as soon as I'm 18, to ensure that I'll be able to get away as soon as i can. im a freshmen, and i plan on getting my license asap so i can drive to get a job, and save money. i also planned on doing duel enrollment so i could get some college classes done for free, and im glad my school offers that. i then move out once legally an adult and live with any relative that will have me, i cook, clean, and am generally a responsible person and i have no doubt that any one would be happy to have me live with them, as i am considerate of my living space. but my immediate family is not. i clean out and organize the fridge because if i dont, nobody cares about food getting moldy or things being all over the place. i used to clean most of the house even tho i have three siblings, because they didnt care about the mess and neither did my parents. this was a stressful experience and i eventually learned to just stick within my own environment and id be happier, so i stay in my room where i can control my space, but my parents dont like this. distancing myself from them helps me maintain my mental health, because they are a direct cause. im a very psychological person and i am self aware, and i understand that most of my mental illness roots from my parents and their lack of parenting skills. this has caused me long term emotional trauma, because my siblings have no consideration for each other and are constantly arguing, but because my parents cant correctly parent, the situation becomes worse and it leads to my parents yelling and adding to the problem. there is a lot of verbal argument that turns into psychological trauma, and i can tell that my two brothers have eating disorders and my sister struggles with her weight bc she uses eating as a coping mechanism. my family doesnt show affection and i have no connection to any of them. i have empathy for my siblings tho. i am grateful that i dont deal with physical abuse, but its still difficult at home, and my trauma is still valid. i am aware that i can move in with a relative and be filed as a runaway, but the only person i can even come close to staying with is my grandma. i know my legal mother would tell everyone that im being an impossible teenager and that shes being reasonable, but without acknowledging that she is the reason that i need therapy in the first place. it is very lonely, and all i ever wanted was a functioning family. my friends are my family to me, and i believe that family is not by blood, it is by heart. and my friends are there for me in a way that my blood family never has, so they are my family. every day gets just a little bit harder, and although my four year plan is a long term goal, i dont know how much longer i can keep going. it is difficult to heal in the environment that hurt you. im not sure if i can endure another three years here. my dad is not responsible in parenting, and piggybacks off everything my mom says. his form of discipline is yelling and taking things away, while my mom has to do all the parenting, its too stressful for her on her own and causes her to do the same thing. this is a vicious cycle, for it causes my siblings to argue with each other and look at each other as a source of negative feelings, rather than someone they should try to understand where theyre coming from. due to my depression, i find it hard to be productive, but ive noticed that whenever im able to be home alone, that drastically changes. when the toxic environment is gone, my anxiety is almost non existent and i feel myself again. so i take advantage of this, by cleaning the house, doing homework, and enjoying the space of the living room and kitchen before going back to my room when they get home. these are just some details from my situation, and is kind of hard for me to talk about. i can never stop thinking about it, im not sure if its ptsd but i can never fully focus on something bc the things that have traumatized me are constantly in the back of my mind, and are the things i cant get out of my head. it hurts. every day. i cry until i am just too numb for tears to come out. it is hard, but i try to look on the bright side of things. i am looking for advice on what my next move should be. i dont know anyone who is legally an adult that would be willing to take me in, but i am honestly desperate and confident that they would be comfortable to have me in their home. all of my aunts and uncles arent in a suitable place to take me in, and the only one close is my grandma, bc i know she has a spare room. i know all of my aunts and uncles would help me in a second, bc i am pretty close with them. but they are also close to my mom. so i feel like they would believe her over me. what do you think would be the best approach? thank you for taking the time to read my lengthy post, i really do appreciate it. i admire the NRS and i am thankful that it is a thing. i appreciate everyone working for the NRS and i hope you know you are helpful and many of us in need of support and guidance are grateful that it exists.

      Hi there,

      Thank you for reaching out, as we know it can be difficult to talk about what you are going through at home. You mentioned wanting to know how you can leave home before turning 18. The easiest way to leave home is with your parents' permission. We understand that might be challenging, however, maybe there’s another family member, relative, or a family friend who could help to communicate how you’re feeling to your parents. The second way is through Child Protective Services if safety is a concern. Lastly, you can also look into emancipation options. In most states you need to be at least 16 to be considered and demonstrate that you can support yourself financially and independently. Emancipation often can be a lengthy process and may even cost some money for court fees. We would be happy to look into legal resources if that’s something you are considering.

      Please reach out soon so that we may offer support and resources to you. Our number is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).If you would like to look into further emotional support options, you can text with a crisis worker at the National Alliance on Mental Illness 24/7 by texting "NAMI" to 741741.

      Be safe,

      NRS

      Hello,
      Thank you for reaching out to us. We are so sorry to hear that the situation at home with your mom and dad has been so tough on you. It sounds like their behavior really makes you feel uncared for at home, and you are interested in exploring the possibility of living somewhere else.

      We are not legal experts, but from what we understand, if you are considered a minor in your state, legally living outside of the care of your parents or legal guardians would require one of two situations: having consent from your parents or becoming emancipated. For the first option, it may help for you to reach out to an adult that may be willing and able to take you in and be legally responsible for you. Depending on the laws in your state, this could mean having your parents give consent for the adult you would like to live with to act as a legal guardian, or for this adult to petition for custody. Pursuing emancipation would also involve the legal system in your state, and may have other requirements. In all cases, your local department of family services may be able to provide more details. If you would rather pursue a legal resource, organizations like Legal Aid have offices in most states. We can help you identify the office nearest to you, and are also here for you if you need someone to talk to, so please feel free to reach out to us.

      Whatever you decide, please know that we are here to support you. We cannot tell you what to do, but we can do our best to help you explore your option. You can reach us 24/7 by phone at 1.800.RUNAWAY (786.2929), or via our chat service by visiting our website at https://www.1800runaway.org . We’re here to listen, here to help. Stay safe!

      It sounds like you are interested in emancipation. We are not legal experts, but we can help you get a general sense of how emancipation works. Our general understanding is some states offer formal emancipation statutes while others do not unfortunately. Laws vary depending on your location, but in many states a minor can petition the court for emancipation to take responsibility for their own care before they turn 18. Generally speaking, courts are wary about granting emancipation. In most cases, you would have to prove in court that you have an income and can care for yourself financially, and that you are able to live separately from your parents.
      It also helps to be in good standing at school. The court will also factor in the mental and physical welfare of your parents in order to establish your best interest. Usually your legal guardian would have to agree to this in court. Once you are emancipated, you can legally choose where you live, but you might still find that you cannot sign a lease or build credit until you turn 18. The emancipation process can take several months or up to a year, and may cost money in the form of court fees and other expenses. Usually, the best way to learn about emancipation in your state is to contact a lawyer. You may also find information at your county family court.
      As for if you are pregnant and bring the child with that will likely be a separate legal issue to emancipation and dependent upon your plan for independence. It might be that you can file for full custody at 18 or once you are settled and on your feet, while the child stays in foster care until you can get them back.
      We can look up legal aid resources that may be able to help you with the process. Please do not hesitate to call or chat if you have questions, need legal resources, or need to talk. We can explore your situation, go over all your options, and come up with a plan and resources to deal with your situation over the phone or on live chat. We are looking forward to hearing from you soon, and wish you the best of luck.

    Hello,


    I am a 15 year old female who is in serious need of a break from the current family that I am in. I have been in foster care for 11 years, and have been adopted for 4. Recently I have been feeling depressed, tired, and overwhelmed. I feel like I am ruining the family that I am in. Every time I try to make it better, it just gets worst. How do I make things better with my adoptive family? Or, how do I leave, so that I don't cause any more chaos than there already is?

    I’m 15 and I feel like I want to runaway,I want to leave because I feel like I will be better off by myself...but the reasons why I want to leave is because of my parents they make my life hard..I feel like there so much pressure on me..I get straight As in school,I try my best to be a good child to them...but I feel like a servant to them..I slip up once and they ridicule me and if I cry they always call me sensitive,stupid,or sometimes my dad would slap me....My parents are immigrants so they want the best for me and I completely understand that but sometimes I have a limit and I need someone to talk to about things that I’m feeling and to feel like I’m talking to a brick wall because they don’t believe that I’m depressed...I once told my dad that I felt depressed and he told me that I had nothing to be depressed about...but for a month straight I had cried myself to sleep...ever since I started high school I never really felt happy..it was just short moments with my friends would make my day...but then I come home and the happiness fades away....I know they work a lot for me but sometimes I need someone to talk to and not be called names, or get yelled at..I just need someone to actually care about my well-being and mental health..I feel like my dad in physical abusive and my mom is verbally abusive..but recently my dad hasn’t put him hands on me tho which i guess is the bright side of it..Bit just need some advice on what to do because I just want to leave

    P.S sorry if there’s typos I’m typing this while crying on my bed

    i'm 14 and i have been facing depression since quarantine started and wanted to leave the house. It's all my Mom she favors my older sister and younger brother and their allowed to do anything. Being the middle child sucks i never get attention i'm usually invisible around family reunions. I later on got Instagram and made some friends to cure it up, and it did their very sweet friends and always there for me. My mom found out about it and got so mad and said negative things to me just for making some friends. My sister is allowed to have Instagram and makes friends and Mom yet favors her. I try improving my grades at school and still says my cousins are smarter than me and it really hurt me so much. She only think my life is revolved around "boys' when i don't talk to them it doesn't make sense. I still cry myself to sleep everyday :,(

    Hello. I am a 15 year old teenage boy who has gotten into some recent trouble. Some information about me before we get to my climax though. I am a smart ass in class and outside of class. I am a gamer all the way through. I have 8 siblings. 1 who wanted to game like me and didn't. 1 who is 26 and has had a kid and is not married. I am the second youngest and would like to live on my own in a new family, be adopted, fostered and just get away from my family for this part of my life.
    The other day after I finals for my homeschool group my day had been going well. When I got home, I bragged on myself about how my Tom Sawyer paper was the best in the class and about how well I did on the paper. My older sister asked if I had actually read the book, she said she wasn't trying to put me on the spot but did. I lied and said I read the book, even though I had done SparkNotes. They found out later after I told them I didn't and my mom wasn't happy. Tom Sawyer is a classic book that people more often than books like Johnny Tremain. Then my mom got smart and said that I probably hadn't read it and instead had been playing games. This is when I got mad, cause I hadn't played for almost 2 weeks and was focused on finals. So I started getting mad cause they had already been teasing me of my gaming habits prior to this. I was about to go upstairs when my mom, dad, and sister all were wanting me to stay downstairs. It was immature for me to go upstairs, but I wasn't gonna here it. My mom said if I went upstairs I would be in trouble and that I could either stay down stairs and sit down, so I sat down. My sister then said that "it doesn't matter what you want to be, but mom and dad are just saying that your brains are smart, but not as smart as you think."
    This is when I got mad, I had already had a conversation like this with my parents about being what I wanted to be for the future. In the past I had said I wanted to be a neurosurgeon, like Ben Carson and they used this on me a lot in simple things. I got furious and blew up. I knew that when I had a conversation about being what I wanted to be, they were control freaks about it. I said what if I wanted to be a police officer, firefighter, or a gamer. They don't like games cause of my older brother and say I'm not good enough in games, and that it's a waste of time. What they don't realize is, is that I'm good enough to do it, if they actually invested in me and gave me a chance. Instead, their control freaks who think it's a race in education and don't let me play games ever. They were gonna put in $1100 for me to take a shooting team but cancelled it, but they don't give a dime or even a penny for me saving up for my computer/ setup. I knew this and that what she said wasn't true. I blew up and said that "no, cause all mom cares about is a race in education against the world, and my stupid education." My dad lost it in those words "stupid education." He got furious, he was beyond pissed, and wasn't happy. I wasn't gonna sit down or get a spanker though b/c I knew the real thing about it. Long story short, I fought my dad, embarrassed him, he ripped my shirt abused me some and tossed me around in my chair I sat in to stand my ground. I wasn't gonna let them just ignore me and spit the facts. They don't want to hear it. I got a spanken and now, I can't drive, have any privilege's, and now their definitely not helping me get a PC. They don't realize that if they put in 700$ just to give me a chance and play what I'm good at I could make a living off of, but they say I need to help people. However, in that conversation when I mentioned the police officer and fire fighter. There wasn't a good enough pay for that. In gaming, I guarantee I would make $100,000 in the first year while doing school, by the beginning of Junior year, I would have savings and a possible career. They just refuse to see this as an option and don't like it at all. The Police officer doesn't have a good enough pay, and video gaming doesn't help people, but a doctor is just right since I said I wanted to be that already. I could be an engineer cause I would make so much more money. They refuse to accept the fact that I'm being controlled and don't realize the seriousness of how much they abuse their parenting and compare it to the days in their generations when they were young saying it was much different and that nobody would hire a video gamer. Even if I don't want to be a gamer and instead wanted to be something else common they don't accept it. They won't let me. I am wanting a new life somewhere. It is possible for me to get adopted, fostered, or just live on my own legally. I know it sounds super disrespectful and not appreciative, but there's more that I didn't mention that I just makes it sounds worse.

      Hello there,
      Thank you so much for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It sounds like you are going through a difficult time and we want you to know that we are here for you.
      Your family was probably upset that you did not read the book and used Spark notes instead, but they reacted in a poor manner. You do not deserve to be abused and we are sorry you went through that. You do have a right to file an abuse report. There are a few ways you can file a report, one option would be to call Child help at: 1800-422-4453. You can also talk with a school counselor about what is going on and they would be able to help you. You can also reach out to us by phone or chat and we can help with a report.
      We are sorry to hear that your family does not support you wanting to do gaming as a career. They may be wanting you to focus on school, as gaming can become pretty addictive. Being able to save for your own computer and gaming equipment can be great motivation. You can also consider talking to your family about if your grades are good if they would consider helping you with your gaming equipment.
      We are not legal experts but we do have some information. If you were to leave home without permission your legal guardian could file a runaway report. It is a possibility that if you are found the police could bring you back home. As far as foster care or becoming adopted, that would have to go through child protective services.
      We hope that this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to explore more options please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to help you and support you. Best of luck!

    Well I am 15 turning 16 on February 18th. Home is really difficult due to the fact I seem to f*** up my mum's life. She got mad at me because I was not okay and I apparently ruined her chance with this girl she liked (she barley knew her) I don't feel safe at my dad's house due to my autism and he not knowing how to handle me and I cannot have anything to do with the police as I have so much trauma. I don't want to be home anymore because it is just to difficult and I don't know what to do. I have never been physically abused. (apart from bullies) I just have a lot of mental trauma. I don't have any friends to stay with and I am struggling to not self harm.

    I have recently got out of Perth clinic (mental hospital) and I am scared I am going to relapse and go back into a dark depression and have to go back into Perth clinic.

    I just want to pack my stuff and leave. What do I do.....

      Hello There,
      Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. We are sorry to hear that you are going through a difficult time, we want you to know you are not alone.

      We are not legal experts but we do have some information on leaving home without permission. If you were to leave home without permission your legal guardian does have the right to file a runaway report, if the police were to find you they most likely would bring you back home. One option to consider would be to talk to a school counselor about what is making you unhappy. They would be able to provide you with resources and options.

      We hope this information will help you decide what is best in your situation. We can help you explore more options if we knew more about your situation. We are here 24/7 to listen and to provide support to you. We wish you the best of luck!
