    Hello,
    Thanks for contacting the National Runaway Safeline.

    We are not legal experts but the general information we have is probably not because you are a minor and therefore still under the guardianship of your parents.

    We ask that you consider giving NRS a call at 1-800-Runaway (786-2929) so that you might tell us more about your situation and that we can explore any possible options with you.
    We also are available for live chat at www.1800Runaway.org

    We hope to hear from you soon.

    Take Care,
    NRS

      Hi there,

      Thank you for sharing your situation with us here at NRS. It sounds like things at home have become quite frustrating and overwhelming for you to the point that you don’t want to be there any longer. You’re wondering if you could move in with your boyfriend at age 15. We aren’t legal experts, but in order for you to live with your boyfriend, you either need permission from your parent/guardian(s) or have to be the age of majority (which is usually age 18 in most states). If you left without permission you could be filed as a runaway and returned home, and your boyfriend or whomever you stay with could possibly be charged with harboring a runaway minor and serve jail time or have to pay legal fines- it depends on your state and the situation you’re in. If you’d like to talk more and learn about some helpful options during this difficult time.

      We hope to hear from you soon.

      Best,
      NRS

        I’m in a long distance relationship, we are both 15 and he lives 16 hours away . His household is ridiculous ! They are so toxic and they are not good parents also his siblings . We both don’t have money but could my bf move in with me and my family? Do we both need parent consent?

          Thanks for reaching out to NRS we appreciate the trust you give us! We are sorry that is going on with your boyfriend, It sounds like he is being mistreated and not being listened to. From what we understand about your situation yes you both would need to have both parent’s consent. If he were to leave his parents have the right to file a runaway report to the police. Anyone housing him could be charged with harboring a runaway. It might be a good idea to see if another relative who could perhaps help take care of him. That way he can be out of that home but also do it in a way where the police wouldn’t be looking for him!
