    re: can i leave at 18 years old?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for sharing your story with us. It seems that you are worried that if you leave your home, your dad will call immigration on your boyfriend who is not here legally. It's understandable to be concerned about what would happen to your boyfriend in that situation. We aren't legal experts here at NRS so we don't know exactly what your dad is allowed to do in that situation. It would depend on whether not the legal age of being an adult in your state is 18 or not. If your state doesn't consider you to be an adult at 18 then that could cause some problems for you. You may want to ask a legal expert at a local legal aid office for more information.

    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat which is open every day from 4:30p to 11:30p CST

    can i leave at 18 years old?

    Hello, I'm 18 years old and I'm passing through a lot of problems in my home with my parents, I've been planning to leave but I don't know if my dad could call the police and bring me back home. I have my boyfriend and he's not legal and I'm afraid that my dad call the migration on him because I leave the house!
