In VA at 16 you can petition the court for emancipation. Be aware that the VA 'emancipation of minors' statute states that the court may enter an order declaring a minor emancipated if (among other things) "the minor willingly lives separate and apart from his parents or guardian, with the consent or acquiescence of the parents or guardian"
