    Hello,
    Thank you for writing to us here at the National Runaway Safeline.

    We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. It sounds like you are trying to decide what to do about leaving home or staying. There are some obstacles (pets) keeping you from making a decision at this time. We can understand your dilemma and how frustrated by a situation you must be. It’s good that you are taking your time in making a decision. If you would like to talk more about your situation and explore some options concerning your pets, please reach out to NRS via 1-800-Runaway (786-2929) or www.1800runaway.org (Live chat).
    Take care,

    I'm 17 and would like to move out for many reasons. My mom isn't nice to me and there is a few places I could stay. I'm hesitant to try to move out because my mom told me if I move out she would disown me and wouldn't help me and anything I left she would get rid of and ruin. I mean I have 2 animals I refuse to leave behind it's my cat and kitten my mom would get rid of them or let them outside to get hit by a car ... I don't want that I would have to take them with me. My boyfriend is one year older and has offered to help (he’s living with me right now). Let me explain why I want to leave, for years I put up with my mom constantly putting me down call me names and mentally abusing me, I never had a good self-esteem but her words hurt me allot, to this day I've had enough and started to speak up for myself but all it's fine was make it worse my sister told me to move out but I have so much stuff and I have no way of getting the cats out and I will not leave them.

    Hi there, thanks for reaching out today.

    Generally speaking, at 16 you are still considered a minor and your parents are within their rights if they are not letting you have your job. We are not sure if they can quit for you. If they tried, you might reach out to your employer to see if there is anything you can do.

    If you would like to talk more about your situation do not hesitate to call or chat us. We are always here for you.

    Best,

    Hi there, thanks for reaching out today with this question.

    We can only answer your question generally because it is really up to your state's laws and your local police. If your local police consider you a runaway at 17, and your state allows harboring a runaway charges to be pressed in 17 year old runaway situations it is possible for your guardians to try to press harboring a runaway charges against the legal adult you are found with. Harboring a runaway is a misdemeanor charge that your guardians would have to actively press.

    If you would like to talk more about your situation do not hesitate to call or chat us. We are always here for you.

    Hello,

    Thank you for reaching out to NRS for help. You do not deserve to be talked down to like that and made to feel like you are not good enough. It can be really difficult when the adults who are supposed to be taking care of us are not supportive. It sounds like you are trying your best to look out for your well-being.

    We are not legal experts, but we can share what we do know about runaway laws. Generally, if you leave home without permission then your parents can file a runaway report. This is not a crime, but it does mean that police might return you home. In some cases the police do not always consider individuals who are 17 runaways and do not force them to go home. The police department where you live will have more information on their runaway protocol and you can ask them questions anonymously by calling their non-emergency number. If you would like us to call for you, just call or chat with us anytime. We are available 24/7 to help and listen if you would like to talk more about your situation.

    Take care,
    NRS

    Hi I live in Michigan and just turned 17. My home life is not supportive of me whatsoever no matter what I do. I am a good athlete and have good grades. I always keep up on my chores but all they do is down on me and tell me I’m not good enough. I want to know if I can legally move in with a friend until college without getting into trouble?

    Hello,
    Thanks for contacting the National Runaway Safeline.
    We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on.
    Just so that you know we are not legal experts and only can provide some general legal information when it comes to someone running away or someone assisting/aiding a person running away.
    Someone under 18 that leaves home, the parent/guardian may file them as a runaway and they may be returned home. Also, those that a reported runaway stays with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. Anyone found to be assisting or aiding someone to run away may also find themselves at risk legally. For more specifics on the law, you might consider contacting the local non-emergency number for the police. You might also look for a legal aid center in the area. They may be able to answer any legal questions on the subject.
    If you would like to talk more in detail we are here as support to help through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email to assist you.
    Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button).
    Take care,
    NRS

    Thank you for contacting the National Runaway Safeline. While we are not legal experts, it is our understanding that if your dad is your legal guardian, he can give you permission to live somewhere that is not your home. It is hard for us to say when we know very little about the specifics of your situation. If you would like to share a little bit more about what is going on, we would be happy to provide you any relevant information that we have. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us on our 24/7 hotline 1-800-786-2929 or on chat at 1800runaway.org.

    Take care,

    Hello! Thank you for reaching out to National Runaway Safeline! It is really great that you are so supportive of your girlfriend and are looking out for her. We are not legal experts so we could not tell you what would happen to her Child Benefits. Since your girlfriend is 18, she can legally do what she wants since she is considered an adult. If moving in with you seems like the best option to her there should not be anything standing in the way. You mentioned that her family is abusing her. That is a very serious situation. She could reach put to the National child Abuse Hotline at 1800-422-4453. They can help answer questions regarding abuse and maybe help her process what is going on. Another resource that might be valuable to her is the National Alliance on Mental Illness. You can reach out to them at 1800-950-NAMI or text NAMI to 741741. They can better aid her in finding help if she needs it and talking through her situation. It was great that you contacted us on your girlfriend’s behalf. If you have any other questions you can always contact us via our hotline at 1800-786-2929 or chat with us live at www.1800runaway.org.
    We’re here to listen, here to help.

    My girlfriend is 18 but still a senior in highschool, her family doesnt care about her mental well being and goes to the point of almost abusing her daily. She does not feel safe or at home and she was wondering if it was ok to leave and stay with me and if she was legally able to keep all her belongings? She also doesnt have a job and she claims Child benefits because she lost her mother when she was younger. Would any of those effect this?
