This is not legal advice and should not be relied upon as such. Consult the specific laws for the state and county in which you reside for the rules that apply. In most states, any 18 year old is considered an adult and is capable of deciding when and where they reside. They have the ability to contract for housing. SOME states allow minors to become emancipated under specific circumstances, but this is not just a matter of filling out some paperwork. A minor is the responsibility of their parents until such time as they reach the age of majority or are legally emancipated. The parents are required to provide for the support of their minor children. If the parents give permission, the minor can live in another location. Such permission does not relieve the parents of the responsibility to provide support. If the parents do not give permission, the minor can be considered a runaway. Charges may apply to individuals that aid and abet such runaways, particularly if they are under the age of consent. In some states it is my understanding that this is not enforced for 17 year olds that leave home. If you are subject to abuse, you should contact social services for your area. They will assist you in getting out of the bad environment and into a safe place.
It is not illegal to runaway from home in the state of Oregon. The reasoning is that the child may be running away from a hard home life or traumatic situation.
Running away from home in any country is not very good. I don't think it is illegal. There are teens who do these stuff all the time.
There is no legal age to "run away from home." You can leave home at 18 when you become an adult otherwise it is illegal to "run away" ( that's why it is called "running away.")
There are laws in the state of Maine for running away. It is illegal for to run away from home before you are 18 years of age or without your parent's consent.
In Pennsylvania, it is not illegal for a child to run away from home. Many parents in the state worry about their child because there are no laws in place to keep them at home.
There are only nine states that consider running away to be a status offense and illegal. Oregon is not one of them. the states are West Virginia, Nebraska, Georgia, South Carolina, Texas, Idaho, Kentucky, Utah, and Wyoming.
Do you mean running away from home? By 18 you are legally an adult, so for running away from home, no, but if you are kidnaped they will still search for you.
Status Offense. Adults may run away from home and not violate any law, but runaway children are subject to apprehension and juvenile court processing.

Yes it is illegal at 14 to run away in New York and you can go to Juvie and I know a 15 year old that did that he wen't to Juvie so if you are thinking about running away try to talk to someone you care about to fix it because I don't think getting away from your problems for like 2 days is worth going to Juvie what about you?
