Not without applying to the court for early emancipation status. N.C. has very specific guidelines within the law that pertains to emancipation of a minor. N.C. Juvenile Code, Chapter 7B, Article 35. If it is a situation of abuse and/or neglect the minor should contact N.C. Division of Social Services/Child Protective Services 919-733-4622. Or National Child Abuse Hotline 1-800-392-3738. Youth Crisis Services Hotline 1-800-448-4463, Youth Emergency Services Hotline 1-800-899-5437. For discussing your problems confidentially with other teens you might wish to visit


I don't recommend it, I'm 16 and have been living alone since I was 14. I live 2,000 miles away from my family. It's not easy, it's not fun, it's not what you think it is. Try and work everything out before you do anything. Think before you act. I wish I had thought about what I did each and every day.
