    Hi, I'm 17 and live in Louisiana. I'm wanting to get out and move in with girlfriend in Wisconsin. I already have most things planned out. I just need to see if it would be possible to put this plan into action sooner than expected. Thank you.

    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.

    Hi I’m a 13 year old turning 14 in under a month. My mom isn't in my life anymore because she recently went to jail and will soon be in prison. The guardians that I live with are my dad and his girlfriend. My whole life my dad and I haven't really gotten along. He never lets me go anywhere, he blames me for everything, and gets mad at me for no reason. I do chores every day and have all A's and B's in school.
    I haven't been allowed to have a phone for almost 2 years now. I can't control him yelling at me no matter what I do. I don't want to have to deal with this. I either want to figure out how I can legally move out or run away and stay with my friend without getting his family in trouble or myself.

    Hey there!! I am 14 and I’m thinking about running away from home. Life is just going so bad for me and I can’t stay here at home with my parents because they make me feel extremely depressed 24/7. I am supposed to be taken out of school because my parents don’t want to deal with it. I am going to run away to a friend’s house and maybe just for the night. If not, then I will end up at sister’s house. Is it bad to go to my sisters because she is over 18? Idk what to do because I really can’t stay here. If I do runaway what should I bring with me? Or should I really worry about bringing stuff if I’m just going to a friends or my sisters? If I really want to do this, should I?

    Im twelve years old and am thinking about running away....

    do you know if it would be a good idea? My parents keep putting alot of stress about school and about how they will send me to mexico and end education for me if i dont stop soon and get my grades up.... I really think i need time away from them to get my self back together but i know if i told them they would think its a big joke... im trying really hard here to get my grades up but i just dont understand some of my classes. please help. If i ran away to a friends house would i be able to stay there for a bit until i got my self together to return home? I want to do this but i dont know if its legal, and my parents would probably end up sending me to mexico or beating me really bad. Please help? I live in Lindenhurst,Illinois.

    I dont know what to do.. please help!

    Hello There,
    Thank you for contacting The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to listen and here to help. We are not legal experts but we will do our best to help you. Because you are a minor if you were to run away, your parent’s have the right to file a runaway report on you. If the police found you they would most likely bring you back home. They could also press charges on your friend’s family for harboring a runaway.
    Your safety is our top concern, if you do plan to runaway we hope that you are safe. There are more options than running away. If you would like you can call us and we can explore your options with you. We wish you the best of luck in your situation. We are here 24/7 to listen and provide support.

    I’m 11 and I want to run away to my best friends house, (and I am VERY serious about this) I have looked up the legal issues, and where I live there are no laws against it. I was just hoping for some advice.

    Hello,
    Thank you for your message. It sounds like you are in a difficult situation and we’re glad that you reached out. It makes sense that you would want to be separate from you mom until things cool down; that shows a lot of maturity and forethought on your part. Here at NRS, we are not legal experts so we can only give general information. Generally, if you leave home without permission you would be considered a runaway. That being said, if your mom thinks that you’re one place and doesn’t file a runaway report, the police wouldn’t know to be looking for you. One thing to keep in mind is that the consequences for running away while you are on probation may be more severe than if you were not on probation. If possible, it might be an option to ask your mom for permission to stay somewhere else; if you need help having that conversation, we do conflict mediation calls here and are happy to help. That being said, we understand if having a conversation doesn’t feel like an option. If you would like to speak more specifically about your situation, get resources, or need some help coming up with your next steps, we are always here to listen and help in any way we can. Our number is 1-800-786-2929. We hope to hear from you soon,
    Stay strong and stay safe!
