      Hello,

      Thanks for contacting NRS. It sounds like you’ve already done some research. Have you already contacted the local police department to see how they handle runaways locally? Usually (no always), police to not return 17 year olds back home unless the parent firmly pushes for it. Please note that we are not legal experts. There are legal services and advisement in MI. You can always call 211 on a phone or go to 211.org to find them. Or you can contact us via chat and we can provide you with that information.



      It’s also an option for your boyfriend’s parents (if applicable) to communicate with your parents. That may or may not help the situation. If you ever need someone to talk to you can text 741741 to the Crisis Text Line. As mentioned you can also contact us for more detailed help if you need it at anytime. We are available 24/7 at 1-800-runaway or through a live chat on our website www.1800runaway.org.

      Stay safe,
      NRS
