The age of majority is 18. That's when you're considered a legal adult and you can make all your own decisions. In some cases a minor can be legally emancipated. You would want to contact a family lawyer in New Jersey to ask about this. Otherwise you can't leave home without the consent of your parent or guardian until you are 18-years-old.
