    Re: 15 pregnant and wanting to run away

    Hello,
    Thank you so much for reaching out. It takes a lot of personal courage to reach out for help, and you’ve done that several times. That says a lot about the strength of your personal character.

    No one deserves to be treated this way. No one should have to be scared of being abused, molested, or otherwise harmed in their home. We certainly understand why you’re asking about options for living elsewhere.

    We aren’t legal experts, but can tell you from our experience what may happen if you left home without your parent’s/guardian’s consent. In the State of Florida, you typically have to be 18 years old to be able to move out of home without consent from your parent/guardian. If you’re under 18, your mother would have the right to file a missing person/runaway report with the local police. There typically would be no criminal charges against you for this, but the police could force you to return to your mom. Additionally, any adults that assist or house you could face criminal charges for harboring and/or assisting a runaway minor.

    The Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County could be a good resource for specific legal advice. They offer free legal aid. Their phone number is 561-655-8944, toll free is 800-403-9353. You can also visit them at www.legalaidpbc.org or email them at [email protected].

    Since you’ve had trouble filing a report regarding the molestation by your mother’s husband, we can help you get that filed. We have experience with filing abuse reports and can file on your behalf so we can make sure the proper authorities are aware of the report. Please feel free to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).

    Again, we’re really glad that you reached out to us. It takes a lot to ask for help, and you are trying to figure out your options – which is really good to see. If you would like to talk further about your situation, please do not hesitate to call or chat with us. We’re here to listen, here to help.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
