    Hello there, thanks for reaching out.


    Sounds like you are hoping to move out and live with your supportive boyfriend at 16. Sorry to hear that your state does not offer emancipation, that seems really frustrating. Please call or chat us if you want us to double-check emancipation laws in your state.


    We are not legal experts but we can speak generally. Typically 18 is the legal age you can move out in most states. The easiest way you can leave home at 16 is with your parent or guardian’s permission. If you leave home without permission, that is when your guardian can attempt to file a runaway report for you with local police. If you are found by police, you typically would be returned home. If you are found, your boyfriend could be at risk for being charged with harboring a runaway since he is 18; which is a misdemeanor offense. So running away is not usually illegal for you, but he is the one who could be at risk of getting into legal trouble.


    Please do not hesitate to call or chat us if you want help brainstorming additional options for you.


    We wish you the best,

    NRS

    I'm ready to move out, I'm also 16 years old and I can support myself really well. My boyfriend is turning 18 years old and he works in a factory and he can help support everything so do you think I could move out but I heard that they don't do emancipation in my state any more so what could I do?

    For starters, thank you for reaching out about your issues at home. It sounds like you are living in a difficult situation. You certainly do not deserve to be anyone’s slave and it is understandable that you want to leave home for a different environment.
    We are not legal experts but we can offer some general information on the question you posed. Because you are 17 years old, legally your parents can file a runaway report if you leave home without their permission. However with you being so close to 18, the police may or may not take any action which could include returning you home or taking action against your boyfriend’s parents. You may want to consider calling your local police department to ask them what would happen in a situation similar to yours.
    If possible it would be easiest if you were able to speak to your parents and your boyfriend’s parents with all parties agreeing that you can stay with your boy friends family. Realizing this could be a difficult discussion to have, we do offer conference calling. If you would like to try to talk about the topic with your parents and us as a neutral third party, we’re more than happy to help. You can take advantage of the conference call service or simply call to explore your options by reaching out to us at 1-800-786-2929. Again, we’re really glad that you reached out to us. It takes a lot to ask for help and you are trying to figure out your options which is really good to see. If you would like to talk further about your situation, please do not hesitate to call or chat with us. We’re here to listen, here to help.

    Thanks for reaching out to us for help. It sounds like you really care for your boyfriend and it is really difficult for you to be separated from him. It is understandable that you are upset by your mother trying to make you stop seeing him. We are here to listen and support you in any way that we can. We are not legal experts, however we can give you some general info. We are not sure what state you live in, however we do know that at 15, you are under the age of consent in every state in the US, because they range from 16-18 depending on the state’s laws. In the eyes of the law, teens cannot consent or agree to sex until they reach the age of consent, which is 18 in Florida. Age of consent laws are meant to protect youth from being manipulated or forced into sex with older people. We are not sure what state you live in, and you didn’t say if you and your boyfriend were sexually active. If you have had sex, your boyfriend could be charged with a crime regardless of how you feel about the relationship. If your mom has threatened to have him put in jail for contacting you, he could get into serious legal trouble for meeting up with you. If you were to run away to be with him, he could be charged with harboring a runaway, or possibly more serious crimes like kidnapping or statutory rape, depending on the situation. That is a worst case scenario, however the risks for your boyfriend if he were to show up and your mom calls the cops are significant. We are here to listen and help you in any way we can, so if you have questions or need to talk, don’t hesitate to give us a call any time. We are looking forward to hearing from you soon, and wish you the best of luck.

    Run away

    I am only 15 years old and my boyfriend is 18 and my mom said that I can run away to Louisiana with him for all she cares and that she won't look for me is it illegal to run away and move in with him and his family?
    Omg, I'm 15 and my boyfriend is 18 too, he lives in Florida and we're really attached to each other, so there is no way that we're getting separated. I want to run away to be with him so bad, my mother thinks he's the problem in my life one moment and then she thinks he's a good guy. Last night she threatened to have him put in jail if he tried to contact me. Can I testify in court if he was to be branded a stalker or a pedophile? I don't know what to do, I can't stay in this household anymore. My mother has a boyfriend and he abuses her but she's still with him, so she listens to him and he thinks that my boyfriend and I (Nicholas) should be separated. He has nothing to do with the issue that was started at home. I refuse to leave him. I've had mental breakdowns because I would be away from him for too long. My family is going to Fort Lauderdale on June 28th so I'll be 33 minutes away from him, what would happen if he just showed up to see me?

    Hi there,
    Thanks for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. We’re sorry to hear your girlfriend has been facing difficulties at home with her parents. It’s good she has someone who is thinking about her well-being and reaching out to resources for support. She is also welcome to reach out to us if she has anyone questions, concerns, or would like to talk about what’s been going on in depth.

    We’re not legal experts here so we wouldn’t be able to say whether or not you could be charged with harboring a runaway. You may want to consider seeking out legal advice. If you gave us a call or chatted with us, we could figure out if there are any legal aid resources in your area.

    If that is the case, you may want to consider what other options you might have or things that could be affected if you left. If she is thinking about going to college, she may need her family’s income documents or if she is under their insurance she might continue to depend on them. Maybe there might be a family friend or respected member in the community that could mediate a conversation with them.

    You can reach out to us at our 24 hour confidential hotline at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or live chat with us from 4:30 PM -11:30 PM CST and we would be happy to support you through this.

    Take care,
    NRS

    I am 17 and my girlfriend is 16 and she has an abusive situation at home. Her parents are prepared to lie about it in court and claim that she is not psychologicaly stable (completely untrue) They are taking actions that are directly negatively affecting her life and not letting her have contact with anyone. Not even family or close friends. We want to run away together, but I know her parents would file a report and try to get her back home. God knows what would happen to her then. My question is could I be charged with harboring a runaway if neither of us are 18? And once we were both 18 could we get legally married or would there be consequences to face? Any advice here would be helpful. Thank you

    Hello,

    It seems like you and your boyfriend are concerned about possible consequences of running away. In general if you run away there is a chance you may be brought back home. Or if you are staying with an another person, they could get into trouble for letting you stay with them. You may want to think about what you both will do to support yourselves and how to take care of the new baby, health insurance, jobs, etc. We are not legal experts so we can't tell you what will exactly happen. You could try contacting the non emergency police in your area for more information.

    Best,
    NRS

    re: hiding

    Hey there,

    It's great that you want to support your girlfriend in her time of need. But we are not legal experts so we can't say exactly what would happen if you decide to help her run away. If she leaves her parents can file a runaway report for her. Anything that happens after that depends on what her parents and the police decide to do. You may want to contact a legal aid office for legal information about possible consequences of harboring a runaway. Your parents can help you to do this as well if they will be helping you with this situation.

    Best of luck,
    NRS
