My question involves emancipation laws for the State of: North Carolina
I'm 17 years old (18 in march), and i just finished junior year. Shortly after, i obtained my GED. I've already had two jobs during junior year, one of 6 months, and another of 2 months. I'm not currently working, though i plan on beginning the process of emancipation in the next month or two. My parents are divorced, because my dad cheated on my mother. I get along with them great, i hop around from household to household. I talked to them about getting emancipated, so i could go to college and live freely, and they both agreed. I plan on living with my father and attending a college close to him, and to assist him with the rent.
Is there any grounds for this? Could i still live with my father and still gain my independence? Would i need to get a job before i consider going through the process of emancipation?
