The few people I know that have been emancipated in the past have gone through Family Court. You have to be able to prove that you have the means to be independant, i.e. employment, housing, etc. Also you must not forget that until you are 21, at least in NY, the parents are responsible for their childrens actions. Emancipation absolves them from any legal actions caused by the minor once they are emancipated.
