Good evening. A UCC filing is the equivalent of a security interest in personal property as a lien is for real property. The UCC-1...which is the form for a UCC filing is filed with the Secretary of State in which the transaction took place and where the personal property is located that indicates that a debt is secured by certain personal property.

So if I live in the state of NC and file a UCC filing online in the state of Kentucky, would this be legitimate. Im filing the UCC on my children so that they will not be wards of the state of NC.

I'm not exactly sure of the context in which you wish to make a UCC filing. I'm going to opt out and refer you to another of the JustAnswer experts.
