Probably not. If you have a department of children and family services in your state, call them if you're in a dire situation. If you're just antsy to get out of your parents' home because you're 17 and can't wait to be 18, stick it out. It's a lot tougher to live on your own than you think. Not legally. But, here is something the person might wish to consider; even though a state does not have established grounds and procedures for emancipation action it does not mean said person cannot file such a petition. The interested party might wish to contact the circuit court clerk in the city or county where they reside for specific information.

Emancipation laws vary by state, and not all states have an emancipation statute. You need to check the laws of the state that you reside in. You may be able to file without your parents knowing about it, but they will find out, because the court will notify them. * No. In the few US states that allow emancipation of minors, parents and all persons with "just cause" must be informed of the action and given the opportunity to contest it at the judicial hearing.

If you have parents permission, you don't have emancipation cause. Emancipation means being freed from bondage or imprisonment - with permissions being given, one is certainly not being held against their will. The other view possibly here is that the parents do not want to accept responsibility for your being once you leave their home.
