    Hello There,

    Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It takes great courage to reach out for help, and we are glad that you have decided to reach out to us. It sounds like you are going through a difficult time and we want you to know that you are not alone.

    In regards to your question, you possibly might have to return home if your mom wants you to because you are considered a minor till you are 18. Keep in mind that she has the right to call law enforcement and file a runaway report if you do not return home. Since you said she gave you permission to move out, it is best to get it down in writing and with her signature, f not you might be considered a runaway. As long as your mother approves of the move, everything else should be fine.

    We hope that this information will be helpful to 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 to you 24/7 to listen and to provide support through this challenging time.

    Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); (click on the chat button). If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
