  • Kicked Out

    I got kicked out of the house last month by my mother and went to stay with my grandmother. Recently I moved in with my aunt and now my mother is saying I have to move back in with my grandmother or go back home. I am 17 in North Carolina and I do have a job. Is there anything I can do to continue staying with my aunt?

    Thank you for taking the time to write to us here at the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you mother has kicked you out of the house and wants you to stay with your grandmother but you would rather stay with your aunt. To our knowledge the age of majority in most states is 18, this means that if you are under this age then your parents have final say in where you can or cannot live. While we are not legal experts, we cannot say that this is exact for you. You might have more luck getting in contact with your local police department and asking them what right you have as a employed 17 year old.
