    Hello There,
    Thank you for contacting The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It sounds like your family is going through a difficult time. It is understandable you and your family are feeling nervous that she may be committing identification fraud. If you have any recordings or text messages of her refusing to give his legal documents you may be able to go to the police and show them. You could consider calling the police and asking them about this to get a better answer. We hope this information was helpful in your situation. If you have more questions feel free to give us a call, we are available 24/7.

    My brother is incarcerated and his girlfriend is holding all of his legal documents. She’s refusing to return them to us his family. She has no consent from my brother to hold onto it. Can any of us his siblings or parents press charges on her on behalf of my brother? We are afraid she’s committing fraud with his identifications.

    Hi, that sounds like a really difficult situation, so thank you for reaching out to us today, and hopefully we can help support you. We’re not legal experts here, but we can speak in generalities as to what we usually see. Typically, your daughter would be considered a minor until she turns 18, so without the consent of her legal guardian, it’s unlikely that she’d be able to use the card for taxes or anything like that. In addition to that, until she’s an adult, the social security card is technically your property as her legal guardian, and becomes hers once she turns 18. If you haven’t already, you could always try to file a runaway report. Since you know where she is, the police should be able to bring her back home. One thing to consider is that this could lead to them choosing to run away somewhere else, where you may not know their location anymore. If you’re in contact with her, then you could always provide her with our number as well at 1-800-Runaway, and we can help talk out her options with her and ensure that she’s taking steps to stay safe. If you have any other questions, or just need support as you’re dealing with all of this, please feel free to reach out to us 24/7.

    My daughter is 17 she ran off with her 16 yr old boyfriend to live with his mom mind he lived with us for almost a year without any help from his family. They talked her into coming there now she wants her social security number (card) can i wait til she's 18 to give it to her bc i think they are going to use it, taxes, or something of that nature.

    Hello there,

    Thanks for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. Unfortunately, we are limited in information about travel laws and accommodations for minors. It may be good to look into airlines rules for minors and also into resources into the country you are planning to go to on immigration laws and accommodations. We are here if you want to talk through what has been going 24/7 through chat on our website or calling directing into us at 1-800-RUNAWAY.

    Best of luck,

    -NRS

    Thank you for reaching out to us at the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you are in a difficult situation, and we understand it takes courage to reach out for help. The National Runaway Safeline is located in the United States of America (USA). Our knowledge of helpful community based resources and our understanding of youth in crisis related laws is limited to the USA. If you are located in a country outside of the USA, you can use this link to find a youth helpline in or around your country: https://www.childhelplineinternation...pline-network/.
    We hope that by reaching out to a local resource, you are able to get the support you need from an organization that understands the laws and circumstances that affect youth in your country.

    I get threatened and humiliated at home when I try to talk about leaving the house, I’m 16 and I want to eventually move out, I was offered a place to stay in the US but I can’t legally move there because my mother will not sign for a passport.

    Hello,

    Thanks for reaching out to us for help. It sounds like you are in a really tough situation. Once you turn 18, your parents do not have the legal right to withhold your legal documents from you. If they refuse to give you your documents, you have the right to call the police for assistance. If you would like some more information, you might think about calling the police non-emergency number to ask questions about how they might handle this situation.
    For your vital records, you may find this link helpful for determining how to obtain new copies of these vital records: https://www.usa.gov/replace-vital-documents#item-36582. These records include passports, social security cards, IDs, birth certificates, etc. We hope that this link helps you determine the next steps for obtaining these documents if you cannot get them from your parents.
    If you have any more questions, please give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). We are here to listen and support you in any way that we can. We are looking forward to hearing from you, and wish you the best of luck!

    I ran away from my foster home at 16 & I just recently turned 18 about a month ago. I have no information on my past social worker at all. Who can I reach out to in order to get my vital documents? What is the first step I take?
