    re: need advice!!!

    Hey there,

    Thank you for being able to reach out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you have been going through a pretty difficult time and we want you to know that we are here to listen and to help in the best way that we can. From what you shared, it sounds like home is a pretty stressful place and you are ready to leave.

    We want to start off by letting you know that we are not legal experts here, meaning that we are only able to speak in general terms. In most states, if you are under 18, you would still technically be considered a minor. Meaning that if you were to leave home, your parents would be able to file a runaway report. If a runaway report is filed, and you were found, typically you would be forced to return home. Another thing you might keep in mind is that if you were to stay with a friend, their parents could potentially be charged with harboring a minor. The charges for that typically vary from fines to jail time. As we mentioned, we are not legal experts here, if you wanted to know more about what you can do legally, we highly encourage you to reach out to your local police department or to a legal aid in your area.

    We hope that we were able to help you think a little more about your options and brainstorm some more with you, if you feel like you would still need some more support or go through some more options, please feel free to reach out to us here at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) we are here 24/7. We also have a live chat service which is available from 4:30 PM to 11:30 PM CST. We wish you the best of luck in whatever it is you decide to do and hope to hear from you soon.

    Stay strong,

    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
