The legal age of majority in Maine is 18. The issue of running away is not subject to discussion. If the minor is in an neglectful or abusive situation they should contact Maine Department of Human Services Hotline at 1-800-452-1999, (available 24 hrs, seven days a week). Or National Child Abuse Hotline 1-800-392-3738, Youth Crisis Hotline 1-800-448-4463, Youth Emergency Services Hotline, 1-800-899-5437. If the person believes themselves to be in physical danger they should contact the local police or 911 for immediate assistance. The minor might consider discussing the problem with teens who help teens, all information is kept confidential, The legal age of majority for the state is 18. However, when the court appoints a legal guardian the terms of the guardianship order is what designates the age at which the ward becomes an adult. Generally it will be the state's age of majority but not always. In addition in some cases it is necessary for a release of guardianship to be granted before the ward is declared of legal age.
