    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out. It definitely is unfortunate that you are being threatened by your mother and mentally abused by her. You don't deserve this and it's not your fault. Emancipation in Indiana is not something we're experts on - we're not lawyers. Our records about emancipation in Indiana do not indicate that you need parental consent for it, however. You can get more specific information about emancipation by talking to a lawyer or your local court system. Give us a call at 1-800-786-2929 if you want help locating such services. You may also want to have us call out to police where you live to determine if you leaving home at 17 is illegal where you live. In most parts of the U.S., it isn't, but we have heard of some Indiana police officers referring runaways to juvenile detention, so it may behoove you to have us call non-emergency police where you live for more info.

    Best,
    NRS

    I'm 16 and I'm wanting to move out of my parents house in a couple months when I turn 17. I've had multiple issues with my mom mentally abusing me and constantly making threats if I don't do what I'm supposed to. I've went to the child services for Indiana and they do absolutely nothing because they believe my mom and she ends up lying right through her teeth. I have one other sibling but she gets treated like a princess and I'm the one that gets the bad end of everything. I've already found a family that is willing to take me in and help with the emancipated things for me, but I've been reading things that I have to have a parents permission and I honestly don't think I'll be able to get permission from my mom and she has full guardian ship on me..

    Hi, thanks for reaching out. We are not legal experts but can give some general information. In most states, the age of majority is 18 meaning that you would need your parents’ consent to live with your friend’s family until then.

    Hi there, thank you for reaching out.

    Know that your life is valuable and that you deserve love and safety. There are people available to talk with you in times like these, and you are strong and brave for sharing this with us, even if it may not feel like it. If you feel like hurting yourself, you can always call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929), or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. There are people available who are trained and dedicated to helping you feel better.

    You do not deserve to be called names by your family or friends. Sometimes this can be considered verbal abuse and can be reported to Child Protective Services, especially if it has gotten so bad that you are wanting to kill yourself. You can call us or Child Help at 1-800-422-4453 if you ever want help filing an abuse report, or you can always contact Child Protective Services directly to file a report.

    Other people also find it helpful to tell another adult, like a teacher or school counselor, about what is happening. They may be able to help you be safer and happier at home or school. They also may be able to help link you to counseling services, if you think it may be helpful to talk to a mental health professional. We can also help you find an affordable counselor in your area, if you think this is right for you. Lastly, the National Alliance on Mental Illness may be helpful to call or text for helping finding a counselor or talking to a mental health professional. You can reach them at 1-800-950-NAMI, or by texting NAMI to 741741.

    Thank you for reaching out to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand that it takes courage to seek help. We are sorry to hear about the problems that you are having with your parents. It sounds like you are thinking about staying with your aunt. You could try asking your parents if they would allow you to stay with you aunt. If you decide to leave home without your parent's consent they have the permission to file a runaway report. Your aunt could get charged with harboring a runaway if your parents decide to press charges.Some other options that you have are to contact CPS if you don't feel safe at home, or look into emancipation laws for your state. We hope that this information helps, if you have any questions please feel free to contact us directly via our 24 hour crisis hotline (1-800-786-2929), email, or live chat.

    I’m 16 turning 17 in 3 months and my parents don’t understand that I’m not a little girl anymore. Everything my mother asks me to do I do it with no arguing or rolling of the eyes and I do the same for my stepdad. Even though I do everything they ask of me and more they still won’t let me do anything. I’ve asked them to take me to job interviews and hey won’t. They won’t take me to get my license either and they won’t let me go by myself. But they then complain about how I don’t have my license and how I don’t have a job. My aunt has volunteered to take me to get these things but when I ask she starts yellin and cursing me out then takes my phone and things like that. If I were to stay at my aunts house for a couple weeks or months would that be a bad thing to do? I don’t want to stay somewhere where I’m not happy and I’m not happy here at all. When I’m over here I’m sad and angry but when I’m with my aunt and cousin I’m the happiest person.

    Hello there, thanks for reaching out today. Sounds like the stress at home is taking a toll on you and you are looking to leave without getting into legal trouble. Here at NRS, we truly want to help.

    Since you are on probation, if you left home without permission from your guardian there unfortunately might be additional consequences for you rather than just being returned home by police. The easiest way to leave home at 16 is with your guardian's permission. We understand that might be challenging, however, maybe there’s another family member, relative, or a family friend who could help to communicate how you’re feeling to them. The second way is through Child Protective Services if safety is a concern. Lastly, you can also look into emancipation options. In most states you need to be at least 16 to be considered and demonstrate that you can support yourself financially and independently. Emancipation often can be a lengthy process and may even cost some money for court fees. We would be happy to look into legal resources if that’s something you are considering.

    Please reach out soon so that we may offer support and resources to you. Our number is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).

    Be safe,

    NRS

    Hi,
    Thank you for reaching out. No one ever deserves to be abused and it sounds like you’ve been through a lot lately. We are not legal experts, but it sounds like there is abuse and possibly neglect going on at home. You have the right to file an abuse report with child protective services. For more information on what constitutes abuse and what might happen if you do make a report, you can call Child Help at 1-800-422-4453.
    It sounds like you’re wanting to leave home, which is understandable. If you want to leave home, you would need parental consent. Otherwise, your mom could file a runaway report and if the police are able to find you they may return you home. However, if you think your mom doesn’t mind you leaving to stay with a friend or a family member,that could be an option. If you ever feel like you are in immediate danger, you can always call 9-1-1.
    You also mentioned getting custody of yourself as an option. Emancipation could be a good option for you. The process generally requires you to prove that you are financially stable (this usually means having a job) and have the emotional maturity to care for yourself. For more information about the process, you would need to get in touch with a lawyer. If you’re having trouble locating that resource, you can always give us a call.
    Thank you again for reaching out. We hope this was helpful and we encourage you to reach out by phone if you need additional resources or need help figuring out your options. Our number is 1-800-786-2929 and our lines are always open. If you have a moment, we'd appreciate your feedback of our crisis services at the following link:

    Hello there, thanks for reaching out. Sounds like you are trying to move out at 16 since you are being bullied at home. That seems like a really tough situation, and bullying is never okay. Here at NRS we want to help and to inform you as best we can.

    18 years old is generally the age that an individual may leave home without permission from their parent or legal guardian in most states. We are not legal experts here but we can speak in general terms. If you leave at 16 or 17, your parent or guardian may file a runaway report with the police. Generally speaking, if you encounter a police officer while reported as a runaway, you will likely be returned home. Another thing to consider is that while running away is not a crime for you as a minor, a legal adult who allows you to stay with them may be putting themselves at risk for being charged with harboring a runaway.

    There might be some options for you with regards to leaving home. If we knew more about your situation, we might be able to help you brainstorm ways you could leave home or help your home-life. Please do not hesitate to call or chat us so we can best help. We are available 24/7 by phone at 1-800-RUNAWAY.

    We look forward to hearing from you and wish you the best,

    NRS

    Thank you, so much, for reaching out and telling us about what is going on. Sorry to hear about what has been happening with your parents. It makes sense to not want to live with them when they are emotionally abusive, use drugs, and use you for money. There are some pieces of information missing that might be helpful to talk through to for us better to be able to help (such as who have you been living with for the past six months, is it an option to stay there, have you reported the abuse/drug use/conditions, do you have a case work, etc). We would love to talk through your situation with you and brainstorm options, so please give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY.
