Hello, My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today. Please give me a few minutes to write a response and identify any additional resources for you.
I am sorry to learn of what must be a difficult situation.
While you must both be caught while running away within those 10 days, and undergo some form of adjudication (this is a "status offense" in WY (meaning running away is a "crime" only because you are under 18), the repercussions are aimed primarily at resolving the family issues and youth protection.
If you are going to be past the age of majority before any of this comes to pass - the court is most likely to close the case as nothing can be done about it anyway (the matter is "moot" as the court is not going to pass a judgment for which there is no effective judicial remedy).
Wyoming does have a very good packet on what the actual application of this law is - and may give you a bit more of an idea of what I am referencing here as far as what the court is looking at: https://www.courts.state.wy.us/Documents/CJP/Publications/Your_Rights.pdf
