  • Running away to a relative

    I'm 15 and live in the state of Florida, I wanted to live with my grandmother to get away from issues I"m having with my parents but they refused. My Grandmother lives in Arkansas, if I ran away to her would she get in trouble if I stood with her?

    Re: Running away to a relative

    Hello there,

    Thanks for reaching out to us. It sounds like you are seriously considering running away to your grandmother out of state to get away with some issues you are having with your parents. We imagined not having your parents on board with this arrangement is frustrating. If you went to your grandmother's anyway, she could be at risk of harboring a runaway unfortunately. The laws tend to fall on the adults more than the runaways. We're not legal experts, but legal action tends to depend on how your parents react and also local law enforcement. We're sorry our response took a bit of time, but we do encourage you to reach out to us directly to continue talking about your situation.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
