  • Almost 18 and need to move out

    I'm almost 18 and my mom doesn't want me here anymore I want to move out also because I'm physically and mentally abusied here and I just don't feel safe my mom has kicked me out many times I've had to stay in cars and I pay for everything myself I own a horse and keep it at my house and she said If I leave them he has to go with me and I couldn't afford that right now my boyfriend said I could stay with him I just don't want my mom to get his family in trouble I just know if I leave she will try to take everything away from me but I have no choice because she's wants me out when I'm 18 and that's in 15 days

    RE: Almost 18 and need to move out

    Hey There,

    Thanks for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline.

    We’re really sorry to hear about what is happening at home. We want you to know that no one deserves to suffer abuse and it is NOT your fault.

    It sounds like you are really close to being 18. We’re not legal experts, but generally speaking it is acceptable to leave your home when you turn 18. Since you’re so close, it is likely the police might not be able to return you home if you left and your parents filed you as a runaway. You could call your local police non-emergency phone number to see if there is anything that can happen to your boyfriend’s parents, just to be sure. But once you are 18, it is not likely that this would occur.

    As far as your horse goes, we don’t have any recommendations to give regarding what you could do. It sounds like you’d need some specialized equipment to care for the animal and that isn’t likely to be available just anywhere. Are you willing to leave your home if it meant you’d have to part ways with your horse? It sounds like a difficult choice to make.
    If you’d like to call in here, we could talk about your situation in more detail or you could just vent about everything you’ve been experiencing. We’re 24/7 and confidential. We can be reached here at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).

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