    Thanks for contacting the National Runaway Safeline.

    It sounds like you might be thinking about leaving home to be on your own.
    That’s a pretty big step we are glad you’re giving it some thought.
    In most states the majority age to legally leave home is 18.

    If you are under 18 and leave home without permission, your parent/guardian may file a runaway report with the police. What actions the police take once you are filed as a runaway can vary a lot from state to state and even city to city so we cannot predict exactly what would happen in your case. Generally speaking, if you encounter a police officer while reported as a runaway, you will likely be returned home.

    If you would like to speak more about your situation you can reach out to NRS at 1-800-Runaway (786-2929) or
    You are free to talk about your situation and even discuss options.
    We hope that sounds like something you might consider.
    Good job reaching out tonight.

    We hope to hear from you soon.

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