there are some serious consequences that may not of come to mind ut running away is a major decision and should e talked about with friends or who ever you are close with. This should take serious thought ecause the consequences are great and could affect your life forever or for a long time. How would you support yourself and what would you do? If somethings wrong at home or you are having any prolems you should talk to someone about them. Cartman

If you are under the age of 18, have not been emancipated, and leave home without parental consent, then yes, that's running away. Boyfriend and his family could find themselves facing charges for taking you in. Texas does have laws against harboring a runaway.

No, a person can not get arrested for running away at the age of 17 in the state of Missouri. If the juvenile commits a crime when they run away, they can be arrested for the crime.

That is moving out not running away. At 21 you are an adult.

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.")

Changing your life forever. Is it the only answer??? If someone is hurting you, no matter who they are, runnign will not help in the long run. Contact the auhtorities. If they are hurting you, chances are they are or will hurt someone else.

It depends. You can legally live on your own when you're seventeen. You're tried as an adult also. I'm not sure what other privileges/consequences there are to being 17 in Texas.

It depends on your age. Contact your state police department and ask them specifically.

Tobacco? No legal consequences unless under age.

No, once you reach the age of eighteen, there is nothing your parents can do if you want to move out. You are legal at the age of eighteen.

If running away is the only thing you did there is nothing they can do. You are of legal age.

Alot. Please if you are thinking about running away, don't. It's just a way of avoiding your problems. Talk to a counsler or another trusted adult about those problems. Remember God loves you.

Can you make a 16 year old child come home if they run away?

User Avatar

Needs some specifics...such as where is this? In the United States, a person 18 years of age is legally an adult. Also, never heard of anyone being charged with "running away." What exactly is the charge?

You will be returned to your parent/guardian - run the risk of being ajudged a "juvenile out of control" and possibly becoming a ward of the state until you reach your 18th birthday. All that is without even beginning to mention the probles and legal difficulties you will cause for the people that "harbor" you.
