My question involves juvenile law in the State of: North Carolina.
Hello all, I browsed this website for quite some time before registering to post. A lot of the pre-answered questions helped me, I really appreciate what you guys do here. Thank you.
I'm a fifteen year old female, I'm homeschooled and I'm extremely interested in real estate. I live in a very small town, there are a lot of abandoned homes, recently the city has been burning down these homes as apart of a community improvement project.
One house in particular has caught my eye, It's a very old country style victorian home. The property has long been abandoned and I'm interested in purchasing it from the city and renovating it and rebuilding it. Otherwise, it will be burned down. It violates multiple health and sanitation regulations now. When rebuilding the home I will follow the city codes, and have an inspector monitor it every step of the way.That's not really relevant though, I just wanted to explain my case.
I have an OKAY relationship with my parents, we get along fine. They have always treated me with respect and vis versa. In several months I will be able to apply for emancipation, however i'm not sure if this is the option for me. I want to become emancipated from my parents to gain property and contracting rights that I will have otherwise been denied. My parents are open to the idea, I will still live at home with them. I just want to be recognized under the law as an independent citizen and have the rights to purchase this home and enter contracts without legal problems.
I've had a steady job since I was legally allowed to. I've read the "North Carolina Statutes, Chapter 7B, Sub-chapter 4, Article 35 - Emancipation"
It just doesn't seem to fit in this particular situation, my parents are okay with this, I'm okay with this, I only want the property rights so my dream isn't burned down!
So my question is, Will a judge grant me emancipation in this situation? Or do I need to be pregnant and living with strange males with abusive alcoholic parents? Or is there any alternative way for me to have property rights without becomming emancipated?
Thank you in advanced.
