    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 forum 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,
    NRS

    Hi I want to move out of my house when I turn 16

    honestly it sucks here at my house I’m always in a fight with my mom,dad, sister, or my brothers. It’s gotten to the point we’re I can’t take it and sometimes I think dying is my only escape but I have friends who would be willing to take me in, I’m just not old enough yet. But when it comes time that I am would I be able to even if my parents won’t let me? I can’t stay at my own house it’s like a jail cell here.

    Hi,
    Thanks for reaching out; we're glad that you did. It's understandable to want to move out to a friend or grandparent if you are not feeling safe at home. The hard part is that until you are 18 in your state, your mom, if she's the custodial parent, does have veto power.
    Perhaps your grandfather can ask if you can live with him on your behalf. If that's not an option, we hope that you will reach out to us to talk this over and help you discover what your options may be.
    You can chat us through this website or call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY.
    We hope to hear from you soon.
    Sincerely,
    NRS

    I am 15 going to be 16 soon and I want to move out.

    I'm from oregon and I want to move out to a friends or my grandpa's house because I'm not exactly in danger but it is unsafe for me to live in this house in this town. So I guess I'm just needing to know if I can move out without my bio mom having veto power

    Hello!

    Thanks for reaching out! It sounds like you are going through a difficult time now at home and we are very glad you reached out to us.

    Your safety is our number one priority. If you do not feel safe at home please call 911 or the police for help. In the state of Oregon you are considered a minor until you turn 18. Therefore, your parents are your legal guardians until then. However, if the parent figure you would like to live with is an adult and your mom allows it you can move out. Another option is to file a child abuse report with Child Protective Services. Or you could speak to a trusted adult like a school teacher or relative and see how they could help you.

    You don't deserve to be treated like that at home. Please call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY or contact us through our chat option and we can talk further. We are here to listen and help in any way we can!

    Hi there,

    Thank you for reaching out, we hope to help as best we can. It sounds like you’ve felt unsupported by your parents at home lately, we’re sorry you’ve been going through this challenging time. For the most part, 18 years old is generally the age that an individual may leave home without permission from their parent or legal guardian. We are not legal experts here but we can speak in general terms. If you are under 18 and leave home without permission, your parent/guardian may file a runaway report with the police. What actions the police take once you are filed as a runaway can vary a lot from state to state and even city to city so we cannot predict exactly what would happen in your case.

    Generally speaking, if you encounter a police officer while reported as a runaway, you will likely be returned home. However, in that case there may be services (family counseling, etc.) available to you as a youth in crisis/runaway but again, police procedures related to offering those services can be different based on your location or the details of your situation.

    Another thing to consider is that while running away is not a crime, a legal adult who allows you to stay with them may be putting themselves at risk for being charged with harboring a runaway. One way to find out the laws in your area is to call your local police and ask what their policies are regarding runaway youth. In some areas, if you are close to turning 18 they may not actively search for runaway youth. Do keep in mind each PD may handle things a bit different.

    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).
    We hope to hear from you soon.


    Be safe and stay strong,

    Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline and sharing your story. You are very brave.

    You do not deserve to be abused or kicked out of your home. If you think it would be helpful to talk further about the abuse you can reach out to Child Help, the child abuse hotline, by chatting with them at their website, childhelp.org, or calling or texting them at 1-800-422-4453. Child Help or the National Runaway Safeline can also help you file an abuse report about your parents if you would like. Having an open abuse report about your parents combined with your mom saying you are unable to live with her could decrease the chances of you being returned home if you run away and are found by the police. Running away is only a status offense, and if you run away and are found by the police you could be returned home. When moving out it can be important to consider where you are going to live, what you are going to bring with you, and how you are going to get there. If you want to give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY or chat with us at our website, we could help you talk through a plan and find safe places to stay.
    Thanks again for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. You are not alone. Feel free to give us a call or chat with us anytime as we are available 24/7 and are completely confidential. Best of luck!

    It sounds like you are interested in emancipation. We are not legal experts, but we can help you get a general sense of how emancipation works. Our general understanding is some states offer formal emancipation statutes while others do not unfortunately. Laws vary depending on your location, but in many states a minor can petition the court for emancipation to take responsibility for their own care before they turn 18. Generally speaking, courts are wary about granting emancipation. In most cases, you would have to prove in court that you have an income and can care for yourself financially, and that you are able to live separately from your parents. It also helps to be in good standing at school. The court will also factor in the mental and physical welfare of your parents in order to establish your best interest. Usually your legal guardian would have to agree to this in court. Once you are emancipated, you can legally choose where you live, but you might still find that you cannot sign a lease or build credit until you turn 18. The emancipation process can take several months or up to a year, and may cost money in the form of court fees and other expenses. Usually, the best way to learn about emancipation in your state is to contact a lawyer. You may also find information at your county family court. We can look up legal aid resources that may be able to help you with the process. Please do not hesitate to call or chat if you have questions, need legal resources, or need to talk. We can explore your situation, go over all your options, and come up with a plan and resources to deal with your situation over the phone or on live chat. Our number is 1800-RUNAWAY and our live chat can be found at www.1800RUNAWAY.org.
    We are looking forward to hearing from you soon, and wish you the best of luck.

    I'm 16 I live in Oregon. My mom is emotionally abusive. I feel as if I am walking on egg shells. My dad lives in Minnesota and he is the exact same way. I have people that I can go move in with. But my parents will not let me. They often forget big needs that I have. Like meds or things like that. While living with them my mental health is not doing good. I am struggling in school and with work due to the way things are at home. How can I get emancipation?
