    Re:run away

    Thank you for contacting us at the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you are going through a lot. It’s great to see that you are reaching out for help before making a decision.
    It seems like you have been thinking about running away from home. While we are not legal experts, just speaking in general terms running away is a status offense and what that means is that police can bring you back home and whoever you are staying with could be charged with harboring a runaway and could get in legal trouble. However, we are not sure what might happen if you are on probation and whether there would be any consequences after you turn 18. The best way to find out would be to call the local police department or check with a lawyer. If you call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or live chat with us from 4:30 PM to 11:30 PM CST we would be happy to look up those numbers for you. You might also want to think about how you might pay for food, rent and other living expenses. We would be able to talk to you, explore your options and look for any resources if those might be options for you.
    You are doing great by reaching out for help before making a decision. This can be a really hard time. We wish you the best and hope to hear from you soon.
    Best

      Hi,
      Reaching out for help can be difficult and we are glad you messaged us. You do not deserve to be abused. We are sorry to hear no one has reached out and helped you when you reported your parents abuse. If you wanted to file an abuse report again we can help you walk through the process, we are available by phone 24 hours a day 7 days a week (1-800-786-2929). We are also available to listen and talk through other resources by phone or chat.
      We are not legal experts and every case is different. In most states running away is not a crime but is considered a status offense. If you runaway to a friend or relative the person housing you could be charged with harboring a runaway. You can call your local non-emergency police number for additional legal questions. Consequences for running away can also very depending on past charges.
      If you ever had a case worker that you could get in touch with they may be able to help you with additional resources and suggestions. We are also here to listen and provide additional resources and suggestions. You do not deserve to be abused and are here to help.

          Re: Re: running away on probation

          Hi there,

          Thank you so much for reaching out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you’re certainly in a tough spot being on probation and unable to see your father. You shared that he is very sick, this has to be extremely difficult. We’re glad you reached out.

          It sounds like you are looking to visit your father as he is not doing well as far as his health is concerned. This has to be very hard to be going through, especially being that you are away from him. It sounds like you are looking to visit him for a certain period of time but may not have plans to stay. We’re not experts, but generally, if your legal guardian allows you to visit, they would be responsible for providing transportation to and from. There may be different protocol for a youth who is on probation. One way to find out whether or not this would be permitted is to talk to your probation officer to see if there is any way this could happen.

          We’re here 24/7 to talk more with you about your situation and try to come up with possible options and a plan to help keep you safe. Please, do not hesitate to call or chat to talk further.

          Best,

              re: run away

              Hey there,

              It seems like you have some questions as to whether or not you could be sent back jail if you run away. At this time we actually don't have access to that information to say for sure what would happen to you. We aren't legal experts here. You could check with your probation officer and ask them what the possible consequences of leaving home are while you're on probation.

              Good luck

                          Hello and thanks for posting on our forum. It sounds like you’ll be 18 soon and are trying to figure out what might happen if you run away. We unfortunately cannot say for sure as we are not legal experts. However, the outcome will likely depend on your local law enforcement. Our understanding is for most intents and purposes, you are considered a legal adult at 18. So, if you leave without permission, your mom may file you as a runaway/missing juvenile. If she decides to make this report, your friend (if 18+) and/or their parents/guardians/other household members could potentially get in trouble for harboring a runaway. Some police departments will say the parent/guardian has to wait until curfew passes, while others will take the report right away if the parent/guardian insists their minor child does not have permission to be away from home. If you share your city/state, we can look up your non-emergency police or sheriff’s department to try and get more information. Good luck!

                              Hello,

                              Thank you for reaching out to us. We're sorry to hear that you have been going through so much for 7 years. We're not legal experts, but in most places running away is a status offense and not criminal in nature. However, if running away is a violation of your probation (not having locations approved by probation officer, not making meetings or fulfilling other requirements) there might be more legal consequences than usual. This can look like having a warrant for an arrest since it is violating probation. One way to find out is to talk with a probation officer you previously had or have someone call on your behalf.
                              We can also look up legal resources for you to ask these specific legal questions regarding your case, if you would feel more comfortable with that.

                              We would be happy to discuss your situation in more detail if you called in or utilized our live chat service.

                              Best of luck,

                                  Hey there,

                                  You have a valid question about leaving when your are 18. Because you are on probation, you may want to reach out to your probation officer to see if there would be any limitations on you moving when you are 18. You can also see if they can tell you whether or not 18 is considered to be a legal adult in your state.

                                  Best of luck,
                                  NRS
