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. If your parents are not willing to give you permission to move in with this relative, then the relative can request that the court award them custody of you. You will have to prove to the court that it's better for you to live with this relative than your parents. There has to be a valid reason for it. The courts do not like to override the authority of a parent, and they won't do it without legitimate cause.
