Check with a local lawyer for your state. This is hard to do. Kids think it is a matter of mom signing a paper or them requesting it. The minor must prove that they can support themselves. That means have a job and pay all their bills for the long term not just for the next month or two. This also does NOT include use of government programs or the wellfare system. Support includes rent and utilities, food, necessary medical, and day to day expenses. The minor also must prove they can continue with their education either finish school or complete a GED program. Finally they have to have a good reason. Not liking it at home will not count. The reasons vary and it will depend on a judge if the reason is good enough. * Very few states allow the emancipation of minors. Under the circumstances cited in the question the minor would not have grounds for being emancipated even if he or she lives in a state that has established laws allowing emancipation.
