    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

    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,
    NRS

    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!

    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.

    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.
