  • Kicked out

    I am 17 and 6 months and from Virginia and my parents kicked me out last week with nothing. My dad told me to leave and never speak to him again. I left and I now have a safe place to stay but got word that they are having cops look for me. Things at home were bad and I don't want to go back. What are my options to stay out of legal trouble and stay where I am?

    Hello There,
    Thank you 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 right now, and we want you to know that you are not alone.
    We are sorry to hear that your parent’s kicked you out and are now having the police look for you. Because you are a minor if they kicked you out that is considered neglect which you can report them or that. If the police do find you it is a possibility that they can still return you home, but you can always tell them your situation and what happened. Most likely you would not get into any legal trouble because running away is not illegal.
    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 for you 24/7 best of luck!
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
