    Hello there -

    Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to reach out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline. Thanks for writing to us here at the National Runaway Safeline with your concerns. Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to reach out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline and posting on our public forum. By helping you during your crisis, hopefully there are other youth that are in similar situations can read this for help as well.

    As you have probably already read the multiple other threads that we have posted here on the forum board you should know that we are not legal experts. Generally, what typically happens in each state is if you are below the legal age of majority, your parents would be able to make a runaway report and the police will be able to bring you back home. If you left the city or even the state while on the run, the report will likely follow you. Now considering that information, once you turn 18 years old (if that is the age of majority in your state) you would be considered a legal adult and cannot be forced home and your parents cannot file a runaway report with the police. Now if you have not told them where you are or have cut all communication with them, they can call the police still but to file a missing person’s report rather than a runaway report. It would not affect you at all though because they do not normally come up on background checks. You can always go to the police and tell them that you are not missing.

    If you have any questions at all, please feel free to call in. Hope that this information helps.

    Not a problem!!! Thank you
    (17:49) NRS210: Thank you for contacting National Runaway Safeline (NRS). It sounds like you are thinking about running away from home. We are not legal experts and cannot advise you on what steps to take as laws can vary from state to state. We appreciate you reaching out to us to help guide you through a difficult time. Generally, speaking if you were to run away your parents could file a runaway report which is a status offense. If the police finds you then they can call your parents and have you return home. In addition, the person you are staying with could be potentially charged with harboring a youth and other legal crimes. You can call us directly to discuss further options and we can help you reach out to local police to determine what could actually happen.
    We hope this information is helpful to you and appreciate you reaching out to NRS for help. Again, please do not hesitate to contact us directly through our 24 hour hotline 1-800-RUNAWAY (1-800-786-2929) to discuss more options.

    Thank you for reaching out to us. It sounds like you are going through a tough time at home with your parents and want to leave home without their knowing. We are here to listen to you and support you and everything you're going through during this time. While we are not legal experts, you are 19 and the age of majority in Nevada is 18. So you are allowed to leave your home without permission. As far as the situation goes, that is an option. If you would like to talk to someone about your situation more specifically, please reach out to us at 1-800-786-2929 or via our online chat system. Best of luck. -NRS

So, me and him have been thinking about just leaving. He'll have his license soon and he has a well paying job. What would be the consequences of me and him leaving when we are both still 15 and 17? Could we get in trouble with the law? What if my mom tries to press charges against him or his mother? Leaving with him would just be so great because we both feel suffocated here. How much trouble could we get in?
    But could my boyfriend get in any kind of trouble for running away with me? He'll be 18 in 2 months and I'll still be considered a minor.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out. It takes a lot to come forward with your problems, and we hope that we can help you out.

    Firstly, you mentioned that you have had suicidal thoughts. We prioritize your well-being and your safety, and invite you to call us when you are experiencing suicidal thoughts. We can be reached at 1-800-786-2929. We can help you process your emotions and help you develop some coping strategies for these emotions. You also can call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, which can be reached at 1-800-273-8255.

    We are not legal experts, however we can give you some general information on running away. We encourage you to reach out to your non-emergency police department and ask hypothetical, anonymous questions about your situation to find out more specific information. When a youth runs away, that youth’s guardians can file a runaway report on the youth with the police. If the police find the youth, then they can return the youth home to their guardians. Generally, running away is a status offense (like breaking curfew), not a criminal offense. This makes it unlikely that runaway youth will be arrested or detained by police for running away. Those who harbor runaway youth can be criminally charged for harboring those runaways. From what we have heard, this may be a more unlikely charged to have filed against somebody, but because it is still a possibility, we want you to be aware about the charge’s existence.

    Hopefully this was helpful in dealing with your situation. We invite you to reach out to us if you need further assistance, or if you are having difficulties finding your non-emergency police department’s contact information.

    Thank you for contacting National Runaway Safeline. It seems like you are very concerned about your best friend and her boyfriend. Unfortunately, here at NRS we do not help people runaway or give advice due to our non directive approach. We are also not legal experts so we cannot say for sure whether or not her boyfriend would be arrested if they decided to runaway together. From what we know, if she decided to leave with him he could get charged with harboring a runaway as well as getting in trouble for dating a minor. We are sorry to hear that they are both suicidal. Talking to someone that they trust may help to improve their situation. The National Suicide Prevention Life (1-800-273-82-55) is a great resource for people that have thought about harming themselves. You are such a great friend for seeking help for them, we are sure that they appreciate your support. If you friend has any other questions, please give her our contact information so that she can contact us directly. We can be reached through our 24 hour crisis hotline (1-800-786-2929), via email, or live chat.

    hello. so i have a friend. she is 15 and her boyfriend is 20. they are terrified of anyone finding out becuase if they do then she will be put on strict boundary’s such as: no phone , no communication at all. and he would probably be locked up. there was a altercation they had today where her brothers found out and called her mother. but my friend had staged it as a prank. her and her boyfriend love each other a lot. and they both weigh each other mentally. both are suicidal and the only reason they are here is basically becuase they have each other. and if they lost each other i think they would both commit a “ romeo and juliet “ act. How could they run away ? and Would her boyfriend be locked up if they hose too? Is there any type of way that her boyfriend can stage he left to tour the road months before she runs away from home to cause less suspicion about who she is with ?

    Hi there,

    Thank you for reaching out to NRS via our forum! We appreciate you being supportive and trying to get answers for your gf. We hope our response will be helpful.

    It sounds like home life for both you, and your gf, has turned into a stressful environment. Neither one of you deserve to be mistreated in any way. You mentioned that you are 19 and your gf is 18 and wanting to move out, which is very understandable. While we’re not legal experts, 18 is usually the age of majority, when youth are considered adults. That means that you, and your gf, are able to move out of the house. Parents cannot force you to stay at home, neither can the police. If you need help planning out your next steps or helping you two find resources, we are here to support you both in any way we can. We also offer a conference calling service, youth call into our safeline and we call their local police station to ask them what their protocols are. That way, we make sure we’re getting you the answer to your legal questions, right from the source.

    Again, thank you for reaching out to us! Our safeline is open 24/7, if you’d like to talk more about your situation or options for moving out. Please pass along our information to your gf, if they also want to talk more about the situation.

    Stay strong, NRS

    Hello there, thanks for posting! We are sorry to hear you are wanting to run away. You must be dealing with some tough issues. We realize it takes courage to reach out and ask for help, so you have made a big step. We are not legal experts but from what we understand, if you leave home without parental consent before age 18 (in most states) your parents or guardians can file a runaway report. It is not necessarily a crime to run away, but this means that they notify the police that you are gone and if the police come into contact with you (like through your open charge) they will pick you up. In your case, instead of returning you home, they may put you back in jail due to your charge. However, they may also provide additional resources like counseling or community youth outreach, family counseling, etc.
    If you want to talk more about what is going on or come up with more options, give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY. We are here 24/7!
