Can you get a court order to get married in North Carolina if you are 16 and you have moved out and are pregnant?

You can ask for court approval in any state, but there's no guarantee that it will be approved. If your parents object (and I'm assuming they do or else they would sign for you to marry), it will be extremely difficult to get approval. In NC a pregnancy does not constitute 'special circumstances'.
