What age can you leave home in NC?
Legally, in North Carolina, you cannot leave your parent's home until you reach your majority (at age 18). Although, it is true that in some counties in North Carolina, the police will not make you return to your parent's home if you are age 17 and one half years old. (No, I will not name the counties where this holds true.)

The best thing to do would be to simply call your local police department but I can give you some basic information.. In every state I know of it is legal to leave home at the age of 18, often done at 17 with no legal ramifications. If you have a legitimate reason to want to leave earlier (say 16) …you can go to family court and ask a judge to declare you an adult. This process is called emancipation and is not available in all states. To do this requires that your parents be notified and that you can show that you can support yourself.. If you're in an abusive home you can report yourself to the local Family Agency or Child Welfare system and they will take you out and place you with a foster family. Not all foster families are bad like the ones you hear about in the media. Some are very loving and take kids out of the kindness of their hearts. ( Full Answer )
18. However, if you are in a situation where you are the victim of domestic violence or child abuse, you can get help getting into a new home sooner than that. Talk to someone you trust who is not a member of your family or a friend of your parents, e.g. a teacher, a doctor, etc.
Legal Age . There are very few states in the U.S. with legal minimum ages for children home alone, but many state agencies have published guidelines. Georgia, Illiniois, Maryland and Oregon are a few of the states with specific ages mentioned in their laws. 12 years of age appears to be the mo…st common recommendation. Below in Related Links is an article entitled Home Alone Children Legal Age Limits state by state comparison with references. One guideline from a California child welfare representative suggests that 8 year olds and over can be left at home for a brief amount of time(such as just after school). The most common statement is that a child's maturity should be the determining factor and not just age. ( Full Answer )

This really depends on the child, their maturity and their capabilities. Most places don't have laws, just guidelines informing the parent that it is their responsibility to keep their child safe. Be sure you are making the best possible choices for your individual child.\n. \n~NO CHILD SHOULD BE …LEFT ALONE FOR MORE THAN A FEW HOURS~\n. \nOften the minimum age of 10 is recommended, but some children, even teens are unable to stay out of trouble while at home alone. So please ensure that,they are not mischievous enough to get in trouble, your child is comfortable at home (prepare them for ANYTHING that could possible/impossibly happen),YOU are comfortable with them at home, they have an adult nearby that they can go to for help, they can contact you at any minute while they are on their own (don't make it known to 'just anyone' that your child is home alone), that they can follow instructions you leave for them safely.\nMost of all, make them aware of the challenges and risks of being on their own, it is a serious step towards growing up, and shouldn't be taken lightly.\n. \nIf siblings are left alone together, be sure they know first aid. Home Alone and Babysitting courses are offered in many places. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND such training.\n. \n-If they can't call 911 don't leave them alone!!! ( Full Answer )

I learned of the above statute by calling Child Protective Services (CPS) of Wake County, NC. CPS also said they consider it to be neglect for a child under 10 to be left home alone, and sometimes at 10-11 depending on the child, and the courts have backed them.. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------. According to the NC Department of Health and Human Services:. What is the legal age when a child may be left home alone? There is no age specified by law that a child can be left alone in North Carolina. Parents and caretakers must look at the child's maturity, the safety of the community, and access to emergency assistance. A child may be mature enough to stay alone, but not to care for younger siblings. If you are concerned that a child is left alone and is unsafe, call your county department of social services .
