    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.

    17 years old, crappy situation, wants out without a fuss

    Hey so, I'm 17 years old and I want out. I use to love the life I have, but lately it seems to be falling apart. I'm the only one of my brother, mom and dad who cleans the house, my dad who works all weeks uses that as an excuse to stay in bed, my mom works in the garden all day so I knew she can she just don't want to, my brother wants to be 'cool' so I feel verbally abused by him and by my mother a lot. Roches are starting to infest the house and I can't keep up on cleaning by myself since I have a job. I just don't feel welcomed anymore. I want to runaway. I have a place to stay and a plan. I just don't want the cops or court involved.
