      Hello,

      Thank you for taking the time to share your situation with us here at NRS. It sounds like CPS has been mentioning removing children from your custody and you have been have difficulty communicating with them. Working with CPS can be a challenging system to navigate at times which is certainly frustrating when you are not clear on what is happening with your case. We are not legal experts here at NRS so we cannot speak to your case with CPS or what your options might be. A lawyer would best be able to help you through this process. If you contact us by phone at 1-800-786-2929 or through live chat we are happy to refer you to a legal aid resource in your area. Legal aid can often provide free or low cost legal services and advice if you are eligible.

      Take care,
      NRS

      Hi there,

      Thanks for reaching out to NRS (National Runaway Safeline) we’re here to help as best we can.
      When it comes to aging out of foster care, it can be different per state. Some states will want to ensure you are stable and offer you to stay in foster care until you are 21, or have stable housing for over a year for you to be discharged from CPS. Others may expect you to become completely independent once you turn 18 and not assume any kind of responsibility or offer help. We aren’t legal experts here, but we can help find some free legal aid in your state who can help better answer your questions according to that states laws. You can get resources by calling us or chatting with us online. If you need any other help please feel free to contact us so that we can try to find the best resources for you.

      We hope this helps.

      Stay Safe,

      NRS

      Hi there,

      Thanks for reaching out to us here at NRS. It sounds like you are considering leaving and want to know more about possible consequences. We are not legal experts and we cannot give legal advice, but we can speak generally on runaway laws. The age of majority in most states is 18 which is also the age you are able to choose where you live. If you decide to leave before turning 18, you could be reported as a runaway. Generally, running away is not illegal, but it is a status offense. You will not be charged with a crime but you can be returned to CPS custody if you are found or come into contact with law enforcement for another reason. If you have additional questions or you would like to talk more about your situation please do not hesitate to contact us directly by phone at 1-800-786-2929 or through live chat at 1800runaway.org.

      Be safe,
      NRS
