    Re: trouble

    Thank you for contacting NRS. We are sorry to hear that you are having family problems. It sounds like you are going through a difficult time right now. So your mom told you that the cops want to take you away? Just to let you know, running away is not illegal in most states and when someone runs away, the cops usually just bring them back home, that is, if they are only listed as a runaway. We're not sure what it is the cops will take you away for. Could it possibly be for breaking curfew? We are not sure what the penalty for breaking curfew is but if you give us a call at 1800-Runaway we can provide you with some legal referrals. We would also be glad to hear more about your situation and would like to discuss it with you some more. Our hotline is open 24 hrs a day and 7 days a week.

    hope to hear from you soon, good luck.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.

        Hello,

        Thank you for the quick follow up and we regret to hear that your parents do not want you. However, it is illegal to kick a minor out of the house because of curfew violation or any reason for that matter. You do have the right to call the police to notify them of this situation or the other option is Child Protective Services. We are not able to define neglect or abuse but CPS could come by to investigate your situation if you call them to fill them in on what is happening to you. We are not sure how to help with what consequences is going to be placed on you for breaking curfew so it is best to call us so that we can offer you local legal services to call to find out what rights you do have. How long we were gone before the missing persons report was filed because in some places it needs to be more than 24 hours but for the runaway report it could be filed right after you took off but sometimes the cops still require 24 hours for that to happen. Did your parent told you that they filed or did you found out from the police? You did not commit a crime by breaking curfew but in some cities it is taken seriously and the cops could become involved but when you runaway, the cops bring you home when you are found.

        We are here for you when you are ready to call, if you have a way to reach out. We also have a database of shelters for you if you had no place to go but to stay at most it is required to have parental consent. Is it likely that your parents might let you stay at one since you are not allowed back? The workers at shelters are mandated reporters also and are required to file if you are being neglected. There are ways to help deal with your situation and we look forward to hearing from you. Feel free to contact us at 1800runaway. We are confidential and no one is going to know that you call us. Good luck.

        -NRS
