In states that have emancipation laws pertaining to minors the minimum age for filing a petition is 16. It is a misconception that the process is simple and an emancipation decree is always awarded by the court. The reality is it is seldom done even in states where all the specified requirements are met. Without knowing the state in which you live it is not possible to be more specific. If you are in a situation where abuse and/or neglect is the issue you should contact state social services for assistance. Any of following numbers are agencies that will be able to assist you, Youth Crisis Hotline 1-800-448-4463, Youth Emergency Services 1-800-899-5437, National Child Abuse Hotline 1-800392-3738.

Depends on your local/state laws but no judge will emancipate a 15yo minor with a child just so she can move in with her boyfriend. To be emancipated you will have to prove you can pay your own bills, have a job, a place to live etc. If allowed in your state you might be allowed to marry and get emancipated that way but at 15 you usually need court permission to do so and they often find 15 too young unless there are certain circumstances.
