    So, I'm 14 and when I'm 15 I want to run away to Okinawa Japan. The thing is, I live in England and I'm not sure if All Nippon Airways (ANA) will let me on a flight. Is there a way that I could get on the plane at age 15 with no consent?

    I can't stand this life! Everyone in my family hates me, I'm sure of it. My older brother is always kicking me around all the time, my other siblings (heck, I don't even want to call them "siblings") always treat me poorly too. They hurl insults (REALLY bad ones) at me, they always gang up on me, they even tell horrible lies about me to my parents just cause they think it's fun to get me in trouble. My parents never listen to me. When I am framed and I try to explain that I'm innocent, they never let me speak. They're like, "Oh, they said you did this so he must be right." I'm always being forced to do work while everyone else does whatever they want. Everyone here mocks me, kicks me around, lies about me, just because they want someone to hate. I want to run away, but I have just one concern: Getting on a plane. I know there are some airlines that will let a 15 year old fly alone without having to use their "unaccompanied minor service," but I don't know if I need a parental consent form to fly internationally(specifically to Japan). I hope I don't need one. Please help me figure out how I can get out of the country alone. (I don't think I had to write the whole first half of this thing, but it felt so good to get that all out.)

      Hello,
      Thanks for contacting the National Runaway Safeline.

      We appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on.
      Some situations can be disappointing and even upsetting thus making things uncertain about what to do or where to turn. It can be tough trying to sort out your own feelings let alone trying to cope with the bad behavior of others. You do not deserve to be hurt by anyone. It’s not your fault that this is happening. NRS is here to listen and here to help.
      We understand and we want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.
      You probably would have to contact the airline about ant travel policies. We do not have that type of information.
      If you would like to talk more in detail and share more about how we can help specifically, please call or chat soon.
      We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email or bulletin for assistance.

      Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or www.1800Runaway.org.
      Again tell us what it is you would like us to help you with and we will be happy to explore some options with you.

      Take care,
      NRS

    Hi, I am 32 years old and i want to take my child to Europe were I am from. She is in in her grandfather's care and he has temporary custody of her. She is very unhappy in the home bc she feels like an object and "he just starts arguments out of the blue." Is what she told me. She is a legal citizen of England but born in America. If I take her there without anyone knowing who took her or where she is can they come take her while she is in London with me. And if so will I go to jail?

        Hello, I’m a 14 year old Canadian female, who wants to run away to Japan, South Korea, china or Thailand. But I have some worries on if my mother would be able to find me if I just up and runaway, but I also have some relatives in Korea but have never met them before. (Side note that I won’t runaway till the whole covid 19 mess is dealt with.

        Hi, I’m 13 years old, I live in the US, and I want to run away to South Korea to live as a kpop trainee. My parents do not approve and I know I have to have a parent to get on a plane. I was wondering if I had to have a parent or legal guardian if I go on a private plane. I was also wondering if my parents are still my legal guardians and still have to consent to me signing contracts after I run away. Is it possible for me to find another guardian and then consent to me signing contracts instead even if I’m just living with them? Please help.

        I am confused. You didn’t not answer me and I didn’t contact the NRS. Also, if I run away and I have a phone that I got as a gift, are my parents allowed to cancel my phone or whatever it’s called? Idk what it’s called but I want to know. Please answer!

          Thank you for reaching out. Sorry that we did not answer your questions sufficiently in our previous post. To answer your questions, we are not legal experts but it is our understanding that you would need guardian consent to travel between countries by any means (land, air, sea).
          Additionally it may also be illegal for someone to take you on a private jet without your parents permission.

          Until you are the legal age of majority in your state (18 in most states, older in others), your parents will remain your guardians unless they transfer custody of you to another person or their custody of you is taken away for some reason. They would still have to consent to you signing contracts if you run away as you would not legally be able to sign a contract yourself due to your age.

          In order to find another guardian, your parents would have to give permission to transfer custody of you over to them.

          If you are on their phone plan, your parents are allowed to cancel your phone service whenever they want.

          We hope that this answers some of your questions and if you have more, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-786-2929 or chat us at 1800runaway.org.

          Take care,

              Hi there,
              Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. It seems there is a lot that you are faced with right now and you’re feeling like leaving is one of your only options. It seems you want to know some information on runaway laws.
              While we are not experts on the law, 18 is generally the age that an individual may leave home without parent permission. If you are under 18 and leave home, your parent/guardian may file you as a runaway and you may be returned home. Also, those you stay with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. For more specifics on the law, the local non-emergency police or legal aid may better answer legal questions.
              We are here as support to help through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by forum to assist you. If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon.
              Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (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.
              Be safe,
              NRS
