The answer to this depends a lot on where you live. The laws vary by state, and not all states have emancipation laws. In the states without emancipation laws, the only way to become emancipated is by (1) turning 18 (2) getting (legally) married (3) joining the military (which minors have to have parental consent to do). In the states that do have emancipation laws, most of them require that you be at least 16 before you can petition the court for a declaration of emancipation. But in some states (such as CA) the age limit is lower. You do have to prove to the court that you are capable of supporting yourself--can a 15-year-old do that?
