North Carolina (and every other state for that matter) considers anyone under the age of 18 to be a minor. As a minor, your parents have the control/authority to decide where you can/can't live. However, NC does allow minors who are at least 16 to petition the court for a decree of emancipation. Among other thing, you will have to prove that you are capable of supporting yourself (and that means of support can not be public assistance). You also have to prove that it's in your best interest to be emancipated. That's not always an easy thing to do. The courts generally don't like to override the authority of parents, so you would have really prove your case. The courts then decide rather to grant or deny your petition. It is not a quick and easy process.
