A minor cannot move out of your home without parental consent until age 18. If the parents consent to the minor living with another adult, that can be done at any age.

You can be emancipated (and permitted to leave home) at an earlier age if you marry, join the armed forces, or get a court order of emancipation. Of course, to get married or join the armed forces under 18, you need parental consent.

You can review NC law here:

Search for chapters: 7B-1501, 7B-3400, 7B-3404, 14.316.1.

I hope this helps!
