Just about every state (I think there are a few exceptions, such as CA) requires that a minor be at least 16 in order to petition for emancipation. Even if you were allowed to petition for emancipation, how do you plan to support yourself at 14? There are laws restricting the number of hours that 14-year-old can work. Unless you happen to be a child actor or a professional athlete making big bucks, it would be almost impossible for you to earn enough money to cover rent, utilities, food, etc. The minimum age for emancipation in those states that allow the act is 16.
