      Me and me girlfriend need advice on her running away.

      I'm 15 from the UK and she's 14 from the US, we'll probably both be a year older by when we finish sorting this out.

      Me and her have known eachother for over a year and have been dating for over 5 months. She's the kindest, most caring person in the world. But her family are just honestly terrible to her, her brother physically assaults her, sometimes in a fun brother sister way other times just in a cruel abusive way, she grew up with her mother and father constantly drunk and hitting eachother, and now her mother abuses her. She's struggling to handle it, she's even gone as far as self harm. And I can't handle it anymore, so we've begun talking about having her run away to the join me here in the UK. We have enough room in the house for her, and I have enough money to help her.
      Getting what we need to get her here shouldn't be a problem we'll most likely be able to pay for a flight, or my dad's a sailor so he could likely help.

      But we have few concerns:
      1. Could she get taken back to the US?
      2. What would she require to be able to board the flight?
      3. Could there be legal consequences of she's caught before coming?

        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.

      Hey, idunno if someone will see this but yeah I’m 15, sophomore, from a different country and I’m like going through a difficult time in here. I hate it in here. I've always wanted to go and live in the US or in Canada. I've always wanted to go to school in there, live my own life, get a job blah blah blah. I told my parent’s bout this but they just won’t listen to me, they never understand me, cus they're the worst. I’m like a ********ing basket case to them. so like I’m telling y'all this cus like my parents came up with a plan to go on a trip either in the US or in Canada and I’m planning on running away while we're on the trip. I've actually came up with a plan myself if I decided to runaway but I’m kind of worried that I might end up living in the streets or in the worst case scenario, end up dead or getting abducted. I know what I’m doing is pretty stupid but this is what I want. I don’t wanna be with my family anymore, I’m cutting them from my life for good. I just really need some help like for real. Also, if I do ended up running away, how am I gonna finish school, what about my hopes and dreams? Where am I gonna live? how am I gonna get a job. If I don’t have any money or a house.
      I’m hoping that y'all understand me.

        Hello,
        Thank you for writing to us here at the National Runaway Safeline.

        We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. It sounds like you are trying to decide what to do about leaving home or staying. Though we can understand being frustrated by a situation it’s good that you are taking your time in making a decision. Unfortunately we can't predict the future. One thing we can say is that running away probably will cause changes as to how you will survive. You pointed out some key elements about running away like: Where you will stay? How will you eat? How do you keep yourself safe? Another question you might ask of yourself is: Will running away make my situation better or worse?
        One thing that might help during this difficult time is by making a check list to see if you have done all that you can to resolve whatever conflict you might be having about something or someone. Next is to examine how you have attempted to do this. Consider what the best form of communication is to get across your feelings about the situation.
        It is also important that you remember to exercise self- care.
        We would like to be of assistance to you if we can. It is times like these that it would be nice to have a listening ear.
        We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email or bulletin for assistance. If you would like to talk more in detail and share more about your situation, explore options and how we can help specifically, please call or chat soon.

        Take care,

      hello I'm currently 14 and i live in the USA,
      Me and my best friend want to runaway/move to Fukuoka Japan with our parents knowing.
      my best friend is 13 and i'm 14 we have made the decision to leave either a year from now when i turn 15 or once she turns 15 so she is also capable of getting a job and I wouldn't be constantly working to keep our fiances up.
      The reason She wants to leave is because her parents are EXTREMELY Controversial and she's part of the lgbtq+ and they don't not accept that at all. i don't 100% know her reasons but those are just some of the things. The reason I want to leave is because i feel like i don't truly belong anywhere and everywhere I go i just feel i don't belong with my family, I used to live with my dad with my 3 other siblings but i couldn't take the bullying and the house was terrible so I moved with my mom to another state she said that i would have more opportunities here but she never let me see the friends that I met and was really strict She emotionally and physiologically abused me and my step dad let it happen. I have the urge to get as far away from them as I can. My dad really cared about me but i cant live in those conditions.
      I already have a passport and my friend is trying to get her passport, she also is trying to get her social security but her parents wont give it her, which i think she need to get a job. i have all my documents though, Another problem is getting on the plane, do you happen to know any airlines that will let us on by our self's we live around southwestern USA. I had a thought of asking my older sister (she's 21 currently) if she was willing to move to japan and have us live with here but if she disagrees i'm afraid she'll rat us out.
      I have a job working for a family business and i'm gonna save up that money and were going to get as many donations as we can and as much money as we can to make sure we have the best out coming. But we need to find a way to get the money out of my account since it's connected to my family and they can see everything I do. I know nothing about running away but i and 100% i wanna do it because once i'm on my own i wont feel like a burden to anyone i know an my anxiety would go down. We both have been learning Japanese for a year already coincidentally so we plan to keep learning so we can speak fluent when we get there. I was taught to independent at a young age which sound really go to other people but for me i never really had a childhood i had to grow up fast, but ill use that to my advantage now i would be so thankful for any tips/advice you give me it would help so much thank you!! ill probably be back with more questions again so thank you!!

        Hi there,
        You mentioned some things that raise concern for your safety and well-being. If any harm or abuse is happening at home, you have the right to report it. We are not experts on the issue, but generally once it's been reported, social services will either decide whether or not to take the case and further investigate. If they do take the case, they will send out someone from child protective services to do an investigation (interviewing people in the household) and from there they will decide the level of danger within the household. It generally ranges from no danger (the youth stays in the home, some services are given, and the case is closed), moderate danger (they will provide family services with possible temporary displacement) and high danger (they will remove the youth from the home and offer certain services). If you feel like this is an option you want to explore, you may find this website helpful: https://www.childhelp.org/child-abuse/. We can also help you to file a report if that’s the route you are considering.

        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.

        The easiest way to leave home is with your parents' permission. We understand that might be challenging, however, maybe there’s another family member, relative, or a family friend who could help to communicate how you’re feeling to your parents. The second way is through Child Protective Services if safety is a concern. Lastly, you can also look into emancipation options. In most states you need to be at least 16 to be considered and demonstrate that you can support yourself financially and independently. Emancipation often can be a lengthy process and may even cost some money for court fees. We would be happy to look into legal resources if that’s something you are considering.
