  • running away at 17 (almost 18) in California laws

    Hello, I do not have a good home life and it is not going to get any better. I have a full time job, I am graduated from high school, and if I run away I have a stable and safe place to live. I would be living in my friends house with her parents. I feel as if my parents would oppose to the idea of me moving out but I am 18 on october 18, only a few months away. What are the laws on that? If my parents call the cops to come find me, would the cops be able to do anything considering I am safe and so close to 18?

    Often, youth may reach out to NRS in several different ways to discuss their situation. If a response from NRS is not visible to a bulletin posting it may be that we have already provided services to that individual through another platform we provide such as email, our crisis hotline, or our live chat service (in operation every day from 4:30p to 11:30p CST). NRS encourages anyone in need of assistance to contact us through our 24 hour crisis hotline at 1-800-RUNAWAY to receive immediate support.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
