      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 email 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,

  • Hi I ran away to another state across several state lines to do it. It's so difficult to live now nobody's looking for me. But I didn't run away with important stuff like my birth certificate or my social card or my ID so it's hard to make money. Its hard to go to school I didn't even finish my 10th grade year. I planned my whole life out and then it all ********ed up when I ran away to my mom . That I haven't seen in like 9 years until the 2018 summer and then when I got some back to my dad I stayed there for a month then ran away to her but she doesn't want me. She can't take care of me. We don't have a house. I have to take care of my siblings. I have to find a way for me to eat. I have to find a house for me to sleep. Most of the time I stay with my little brother's father, my mom's EX he takes care of me and my siblings more than she does. Hell I take care of my siblings more than she then does. I'm just ready to get the hell out and be myself be independent have my life. I know what to do. I just needed to confide in somebody but every time I talk about myself I think people have it worse and I just shut up. Any advice for me it's been 10 months since I've ran away.

      Hi there, thanks for reaching out today.

      Sounds like you are planning on running from Chicago to Texas and would like to use your passport to get there. We are not quite sure what you mean by this, so please call or chat us if you would like to clarify what you mean: 1-800-RUNAWAY; www.1800runaway.org. Generally speaking, if you are under 18 your guardian can report you as a runaway. If you show your passport to police instead of an ID, they can still look you up in the system under your name to see if you are listed as a runaway.

      We hope this answers your question, but if not, please call or chat us so we can best help.

      Good luck,

      NRS

      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. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time. So from what we gather about your situation it seems like if yes you were went to the state you were registered in you would be brought back home. Though you would be brought back regardless if you went to another state technically the government has custody of you if you are a minor who does not have a guardian. If you would like to talk more in detail and share more about how we can help specifically, please call or chat soon.

      Hey there,

      Thanks so much for reaching out to us. We aren’t legal experts here at NRS, but generally speaking, if you do opt to leave your home your parents can file a runaway report, which is essentially a missing person report. This would put you in a national runaway database. Running away is a status offense; this means that it isn’t illegal, but it’s something you can’t do while still a minor. If a runaway report is filed and you are located by the authorities you will most likely be returned to your parents. You may want to reach out to your local nonemergency police line (usually you can just dial 311) to see what protocol is for filing a stolen vehicle report.

      If you’d like to go over what’s going on in depth, or if you’d like to explore other options that you may have available to you, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. You can also chat us by clicking on the “CHAT” button on top of our homepage. We’re open 24/7 and here to listen and support you in any way we can.

      Stay safe,
      NRS
