    Re: Run away

    Hello,
    Thanks for reaching out to us, we are here to provide help through support and resources as much as we can.
    So you said you're a junior in high school and you are 18 years old. We are not legal experts here, but in most states the age of a legal adult is 18, regardless of your year in school. It sounds like you really would like to live with your boyfriend, is there something going on at home that is making this desire stronger?
    Please keep in mind you can always contact us at 1 800 RUNAWAY (786-2929). Our hotline is available 24/7. You can also reach us through our live chat that is available from 4:30p to 11:30p CST. All of our services are completely confidential and anonymous. While we can't tell you what to do, there is always someone available to provide support, discuss options, and help find resources in your area.

    Be safe,
    NRS

    Hello,

    Thank you for reaching out to us. It sounds like you are planning on leaving with your boyfriend while you are still under 18. Although we do not know what the likelihood is of you getting in trouble, we can explain what we know about the runaway laws.

    Technically, it is not against the law for you to run away from home. In most states it is considered a status offense. However, anyone that you’re caught staying with could possibly be charged with ‘harboring a runaway’. It sounds like you have put a lot of thought into this plan. Here at the National Runaway Safeline, we will not tell you what you should or shouldn’t do. We can however, help you explore what options you have and offer any resources that may be of use to you and your boyfriend.

    We can be reached at any time at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or by live chat at www.1800runaway.org from 4:30pm-11:30pm Central Standard Time. We look forward to hearing from you and wish you the best of luck!

    he has a really good job and a lot of money saved so we are going to be able to leave the state if we do decide on this being a sure thing. What do you think is the likelyhood of us getting caught before my birthday? we know we have to plan it carefully and throughly and we are going to take as many measures as we can to make it work.. do you think we have a good chance?

    Thank you for reaching out to us and telling us a little about what is going on. It sounds like you are in a difficult situation right now and it was very brave of you to contact us. Hopefully, we can find you some resources that may be able to help you. Unfortunately, we aren’t legally trained here so we wouldn’t be able to tell you exactly what would happen if you and your boyfriend were to live together.

    It sounds like the two of you want to leave together because you are having issues at home. We are sorry to hear that you are going through a difficult time and it’s great that you have someone who is supportive of you. Do you know where you would go if you did leave together?

    Again, we aren’t legally trained here so we can’t say for sure what would happen but we can give you our general idea of what possibly could happen. Generally, if a youth is under 18 years old, they are still considered to be a minor so their parents or legal guardians may still have the option to file a runaway report with the local police. But, in some states, if a youth is close to turning 18, the police don’t take a report. Unfortunately though, we don’t know what states do that. Also, if your parents do file a runaway report and the police locate you, they could take you to the police department and contact your parents to let them know but running away is usually considered to be a status offense. But, since your boyfriend is technically an adult, he could get into trouble for harboring a runaway or contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Again, we don’t know what specifically would happen.

    Here at the National Runaway Safeline, we are a confidential and anonymous crisis line so you can call us at anytime. We can discuss what options or resources may be available to you as well as making a conference call to agencies if you would like us too. Our toll free hotline is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) but we also have online chat services that are available from 4:30 PM-11:30 PM (CST) if you would rather talk with us that way; that can be found on our website (www.1800runaway.org).

    We look forward to hearing from you and wish you the best of luck!
