      Hi there,
      Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. It seems there is a lot that you are faced with right now and you’re feeling like leaving is one of your only options. It seems you want to know some information on runaway laws.
      While we are not experts on the law, 18 is generally the age that an individual may leave home without parent permission. If you are under 18 and leave home, your parent/guardian may file you as a runaway and you may be returned home. Also, those you stay with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. For more specifics on the law, the local non-emergency police or legal aid may better answer legal questions.
      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 forum to assist you. If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon.
      Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button).
      If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
      Be safe,
      NRS

  • 11 and wants to runaway to my dads house

    i live with my mum and step dad and it has been emotionally and mentally draining,my stepdad is abusive and my mum is minipulative and uses my depression as a joke.The result of this is me considering to commit scuicide and consuming achohol,living in pain and loneliness everyday.I want to instead run away to my dads house,but he has lost his privelage to be my caretaker/gardian since he has not economically supported me.I want to ask is it possible for my dad to gain that privelage back and get a restraining order from my mum and hopefuly get a therapist to treat my ptsd.I live in newzealand and i dont know how i can use the reason of mental,emotional abuse as enough reason for my dad to get that privelage,since my mum can take me back by stating she supported me economically more so she can have the right to "own" .me.please help!!!!!!!!

  • I'm almost fifteen years old and I feel unsafe sometimes at my house and I'm unsure if I should run away or stay put and deal with this, here are some things that I go through at home: body shaming and bullying, and on some occasions physical abuse from my little brother. He throws these major temper tantrum and usually I end up getting beaten up, and most of the time he draws blood or just leaves me bruised. What should I do now?

  • hi I can't deal with the home life I currently have and I want to live with a friend for a while until I'm ready to go back but before I want to go I want to make sure that my friends family won't get into any legal troubles and that my family won't be sucked into any legal problems because my family is divorced and I live with my mum and I'm worried that because of the divorce some legal issues might be taken into consideration and I don't want to go back to my dad.

    I'm currently 13 and live in NSW Australia.

      Hello Sabrina -

      We’re so sorry to hear that you’re going through this. You do not deserve to be treated that way by any means and it’s brave of you to reach out to talk about this. While we are more than happy to be here for you, the majority of our resources and information is about services and laws in the United States. That being said, there is a service like ours in Canada that can give you more information about resources and legality in your particular area. The name is Kids Help Phone. Their website is (https://kidshelpphone.ca/) and their number is (800-668-686. They have a similar service where you can email them too. We hope that you find this helpful.

      Again, we’re so sorry to hear you’re going through all of this. We wish you the best of luck.
