    Hi there,
    Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out. It seems there is a lot that you are faced with right now and you’re feeling like leaving is one of your only options. It seems you want to know some information on runaway laws.
    While we are not experts on the law, 18 is generally the age that an individual may leave home without parent permission. If you are under 18 and leave home, your parent/guardian may file you as a runaway and you may be returned home. Also, those you stay with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. For more specifics on the law, the local non-emergency police or legal aid may better answer legal questions.
    The easiest way to leave home is with your parents' permission. We understand that might be challenging, however, maybe there’s another family member, relative, or a family friend who could help to communicate how you’re feeling to your parents. The second way is through Child Protective Services if safety is a concern. Lastly, you can also look into emancipation options. In most states you need to be at least 16 to be considered and demonstrate that you can support yourself financially and independently. Emancipation often can be a lengthy process and may even cost some money for court fees. We would be happy to look into legal resources if that’s something you are considering.
    We are here as support to help through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as 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 would like to look into further emotional support options, you can text with a crisis worker at the National Alliance on Mental Illness 24/7 by texting "NAMI" to 741741.
    If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
    Be safe,
    NRS

    Hi there, thanks for reaching out. That sounds scary that your dad said he is going to kill you, and that seems so hurtful that he hits you and spits in your face. You deserve to be treated with respect and human dignity. Here at NRS, we truly want to be a support for you during this difficult time.

    You mentioned your dad saying he is going to kill you, and here at NRS, we are concerned for your safety. If you feel like you are in immediate danger please call 9-1-1. Please do not hesitate to call or chat us if you would like assistance reaching out to police or Child Protective Services (CPS), nothing is more important than your safety 1-800-RUNAWAY; www.1800runaway.org.

    You mentioned that your dad has threatened your life and hit you; which could potentially be reported to CPS if you are interested in having the abuse investigated. If you would like assistance reporting please do not hesitate to call or chat us. Reporting can be a big step so it's good to be informed about what could happen, you might also reach out to the expert child advocates at Child Help: www.childhelp.org to chat or talk over the phone about what could happen in your situation.

    Again please do not hesitate to call or chat us if you would like immediate assistance. We are always here for you.

    Best,

    Ok so im 13 and my parents aren't that bad but are really mean, unfair and overprotective, they yell alot at me and eachother and when I try to talk about it they push me away and tell me im over exaggerating. Sometimes when my mom's really mad at me she might pinch me or grab my arms and squeeze them real tight, the more I resist the harder she squeezes, It only leaves red marks but was worse when I was younger. Anyways I want to run away and find a good place next to water to build a small hidden shelter and live a while, Im a good survivalist and will practice before I go, bring some stuff too. But I have some questions, If I go will I be able to attend a school with them knowing, or without them knowing, will they ask too many questions, and will I be able to join a foster home or something afterwards? I cant call but please just answer these questions, I just need to know, like is it even legal, I would go to one of those places that the 'country owns' so I would be able to live and would the foster people send me back home? Please help. Contact me at ******Thank you.

    Hello There,
    Thank you so much for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It takes a lot of courage to reach out for help, and we are glad that you have decided to reach out to us.
    You do not deserve to be gas lighted and we are sorry you are having to deal with that. We know you mentioned wanting to leave and go to an orphanage, we are not legal experts but we do have some information. If you were to leave without permission your legal guardian does have the right to file a runaway report. Because you are a minor if the police were to find you they most likely would bring you home.
    It can be tough to deal with the things at home alone, we want you to know you do not have to deal with it alone. One resource that may help you is called NAMI (national alliance for mental illnesses). They can offer support and resources and can be reached at 1800-950-NAMI. Another option to consider would be to speak with a trusted adult or school counselor about what is going on at home.
    We hope that this information will help you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to explore more options please give us a call. We are available 24/7 to listen and provide support.

    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 dealing with a lot right now and we want you to know that you are not alone.
    We are not legal experts but we do have some information on running away. If you were to leave home without permission your legal guardian could file a runaway report, and if the police were to find you they most likely would bring you back home. If you were to runaway to an orphanage they would also contact your legal guardian or the police.

    We would like to help you further with your situation but we would need more information on what is going on. We are available 24/7 to listen and to provide support to you. Best of luck,
    NRS
