    Hello, Thank you for taking the time to write to us here at the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you might be pregnant and you want to know if you are does that give you the right to be able to move. While we are not legal experts nor are we affiliated with the police so we can only speak generally about what could happen if a youth leaves home without the consent of a guardian. Leaving home without parental consent (running away) is not a crime, so the police will not arrest you. If you do leave home without permission your guardian does have the right to file a runaway report. Running away is not a crime it is a status offence (something that only a minor can get in trouble for: truancy, buying cigarettes, etc.) this means that if you have any interaction with the police they will simply return you home. On the other hand the people that you are found to be staying with could face legal consequences that vary depending on your state. You can find out more about how runaway’s reports are carried out by contacting your local police department. If you would like we could contact your local non-emergency number for you or with you. Just give us a call and one of our trained liners would be happy to assist you.
    If you are pregnant, a good resource for you might be Planned Parenthood. They can provide you with health care options and ways to make sure that you and your baby are safe. Even if you aren’t pregnant, they can talk through with you ways to be safe if you have sex. Their number is 1-800-230-7526. Since because as we mentioned we are not legal experts so we cannot say what your right may or may not be if you do turn out to be a teen parent.
    It sounds like you're going through a lot, and we hope everything works out. As I mentioned, if you need resources that can help you figure out what your next steps should be, or just have further questions or want to talk, you are welcome to give us a call at 1-800-786-2929 or use our live chat service. Take care.

    We're glad you reached out to us. We'll try to help you. It sounds like you are feeling insecure and would like to move out. We're not legal experts but running away is not a crime. However if your parents file a runaway report, the police can look for you. If they find you they may return you home. Have you thought of talking to your parents about your situation? It's understandable that you're worried about their reaction. It's not easy to have such a burden hanging over you. You might also want to talk to a family member or friend about your situation. If you'd like to explore more options we can always call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. We are here 24//7 and are confidential.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for reaching out to us here at National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you have got a lot going on right now but you're trying to make plans accordingly which is a great step to take. You asked about moving out of your parents house. There are a few things that might be helpful to think about while you try to decide what to do: Do you have another safe place in mind that you would want to stay at/does your boyfriend have his own place, or would you stay with his family? Would your long term plan be to stay at the alternative living arrangement until you were old enough to live on your own?
    If you leave without permission from your parents, it is technically considered running away. If your parents were to file a runaway report, typically all that happens is if the police find you, they just bring you back home. Running away is not illegal, it is considered a status offense so it's similar to something like a parking ticket.
    It sounds like you think you might be pregnant but are unsure of what to do at this point. Have you talked to anyone about this? One resource we'd like to provide to you is Planned Parenthood, (1 800 230 7526). This might be a helpful resource in discussing your options; discussing the possibile outcomes with each choice that you have as well as how to go about talking to your parents regarding pregnancy.
    Another option that you have is conference calling. Here at NRS, we offer conference calling between youth and guardians. This means that if you were to call into our hotline, we could make a call out to a guardian and conduct a conference call between the two of you to act as a facilitator to mediate the conversation, and make sure everyone is getting an equal opportunity to speak.
    Please call into our anonymous and confidential hotline at 1 800 RUNAWAY (786 2929), or join us on chat, open 4:30pm to 11:30pm CST if you would like discuss your specific situation further or you would like other resources.

    We wish you the best of luck,
    NRS
