    Hey I’m 15 I turn 16 in October 26 my boyfriend is 18 and we wanna live together my mom likes him well how he sounds but hasn’t met him she said it’s okay for me to live with him because her household isn’t very good but she is supporting and my dad don’t take care of me at all so I was wondering will she get in trouble if I move with my boyfriend without my boyfriend signing a legal guardian paper even if she is letting me move with him will we get in trouble like my mom or him because we plan on saving up and stuff and he really wants to help me. Do you think social workers or anything will find out I moved if I still go to school and stuff what do you think is best?

    Hi,
    Thank you for reaching out to us; we are glad that you did.

    It sounds like you are in a very difficult situation and that your family treats you really bad, which contributes to feeling emotionally unstable. We are glad that your boyfriend and his family are there for you and believe you. We do too.

    We don’t have any authority to tell you whether it is OK for you to go or not, but what we can do is talk it over with you and to help you make a plan for yourself that you are comfortable with. You are right that each state has different laws, and while we are not legal experts, we can share general knowledge.

    We can talk over all of this if you can also reach out to us at 1800-786-2929 (1-800-RUNAWAY) or through live chat via www.1800runaway.org to discuss this further. We are here for you 24/7 to listen and help.

    We hope to hear from you soon.

    Hello There,
    Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It sounds like you are going through a really difficult time right now.
    We are not legal experts but if you were to run away you’re legal guardian could file a runaway report. If the police do find you they most likely would bring you back home. Also whoever you were to stay with could potentially get in trouble for harboring a runaway. Usually that would consist of a misdemeanor or a fine.
    We hope this information may help you in your situation. If you have any more questions or would like to explore more options please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to help and to listen. Best of luck!

    Thank you for reaching out to us for clarification. It sounds like you’ve gotten a manageable plan in place for yourself, which is impressive for such a young age! While we’re not legal experts, if you have your parent’s consent to stay where you are, the police would have no reason to take you home or ask you to leave your boyfriend’s house. It might be a good idea to get your parent’s consent in some kind of writing – even something like a text message from them could help out, just in case the police ask for verification. Overall, as long as you’re safe where you are and your parents do consent, there shouldn’t be a reason to ask you to leave.

    If you have any further questions or would like to discuss your situation any further, we’re available 24/7. Feel free to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929), or you can access our online chat at https://www.1800runaway.org/. Day or night, we’re here for you. Good luck with everything!

    Hello, I have a question. I moved out when I turned 16. My bf is 19 and we live together. My parents love my bf and understand that I need to be with them. I live in Tennessee. Can the cops do anything when I have my parents consent.

    Hello,
    Thank you so much for reaching out to us at the National Runaway Safeline (NRS). Family issues can always be difficult and we appreciate you reaching out and looking for help. It sounds like you are looking for answers regarding legal issues and custody.
    We are not legal experts, but it is understood that in most states including Michigan have a legal minority age of 17. This means until your daughter is 18 she is in your custody and is your responsibility to provide food, shelter, and care. More specific and accurate advice can be found by calling the NRS (1800-RUN-AWAY) or using our chat system. Other options include a non-emergency police line or other legal aid.
    We are here as support to help through this challenging time, however the NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email to assist you. If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon.
    Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button).
    If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.

    Hello There,
    Thank you so much for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. We are sorry to hear that you are having such a tough time at home and we understand the want to become independent.
    Even at 16 you are considered a minor, once you turn 18 in most states that’s when you wouldn’t be considered a minor. So what that means is if you do leave home at 16 without your mother’s permission she does have the right to file a runaway report. If the police do find you they most likely would bring you home. Also your boyfriend could potentially get in trouble for harboring a runaway. That would usually be a fine or a misdemeanor.
    We hope this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to explore more options please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to listen and to provide support. We wish you the best of luck!

    Hi there,

    Thanks for contacting NRS and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you with figuring out your next steps in this difficult situation. Asking for help was really responsible and smart of you. We are sorry to hear things are so unstable at home. You deserve to live somewhere that makes you feel safe and supported.

    Generally speaking, you need permission from your legal guardian to leave home and live somewhere else. If you leave without permission, your guardian can report you as a runaway and potentially have you returned home by the police. If your guardian does give you permission to live with your boyfriend then you would be able to live there legally.

    We hope this information is helpful and answered your questions. If you would like to talk more in detail about your situation, please do not hesitate to call our hotline at 1-800-786-2929 or use our live chat services at www.1800runaway.org.

    Good luck,
    NRS
