  • Underage waiting runaway

    Hey I'm a 15 year old and I am currently looking for a house with my boyfriend because we plan to run away when I'm 16/17 but would I be able to buy a house, get my lisense, and get into a school in Seattle without any legal problems if I'm moving from Texas?

    Thank you for reaching out to us. Most of the things that you asked about will be dependent on the state and how they operate. We are not legal experts but the typically age that you are considered a legal adult and can purchase a home is 18. You may run into issues because you are still considered a minor. At 16, in most states you can receive your drivers license. Again that could depend on the state. You also mentioned school.We are not legal experts here, but we believe that your friend would qualify for these services via the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act. You can find more information for your area here: If you want to talk more in detail about what options you may have you can contact us at 1800-RUNAWAY.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
