  • Im about to be 17 and im looking to be emancipated

    I know what this means and I've been looking into doing it for a while. But today I am very serious. I'm in Massachusetts and I don't feel my mother is treating me like I should be treated. Or has ever really. I need to get out. I can find a job after and can make a case for it, and can most likely stay at my girlfriends house. What should I do in mass. Things to note are that I do not have a phone or PC I am writing this on my semi secret tablet. So calling is out.

    Thanks for contacting the National Runaway Safeline.

    It sounds you would like to move out because you are unhappy about the way you are being treated by your mother at home.
    You said that if you were to leave you could find a job and stay at a friend’s house.
    Okay, so it seems like you have an idea of a plan and that’s good.
    NRS cannot tell you what to do.
    That’s a decision that you will have to make.

    That being said our services are to try and provide information and explore options and perhaps provide referrals.
    Does that make sense?

    We understand you have limited resources to contact NRS however since you are using a tablet perhaps you would like to try our live chat service to talk more about your situation.

    To live chat with NRS visit
