    So I'm running what are my rights

    RE: bb

    Hello,

    Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like home is not where you want to be right now. You had asked what your rights were, we are not legal experts, but we can speak in general terms. Generally the age of majority in the US is 18. If you decided to leave before then, then your legal guardian would be able to file a runaway report with the police. If your legal guardian was to file one, and you are found, then you are just brought back home to your legal guardians. Running away is not a criminal offense, it is a status offense. This is similar to a minor skipping school. However, where it can become criminal is anyone that you stay with could be charged with harboring a runaway by your legal guardian or the police.

    We hoped this helped and if you would like to discuss your situation in greater detail you can give us a call on our hotline or chat with us during our chat hours.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
