You'd have to prove to the court that it would be in your best interest to be emancipated, which means you would have to have a very valid reason for it. In addition, you'd have to prove that you are capable of fully supporting yourself without any assistance. The court could require other things as well. You need to check the laws of your specific state for the requirements. Be aware that not all states have an emancipation statute.

You are 16 years old and want to be emancipated by your father who is an alcholic and your mom has custody of you I have seen him once in three years and he wont call for months or even years?

It does not sound like you know what being emancipated means. Being emancipated is where a minor under the age of 18 no longer wants their parents to be responsible for them and wants to be considered an adult by the state. This would mean that you would have all the rights of an 18 year old at the age of 16. If your mother has custody of you and you have no problem with her then i would see no reason to try to get emancipated.

How do you get your mom to sign emancipation papers without taking her to court?

Neither action is a legal option. Emancipation of a minor can only be granted by the court, a parent signing a "paper" for the minor to be emancipated does not grant the minor emancipation rights. A parent cannot be forced to enter into such action by the minor child, the other parent or a court of law. The only exception would be if the court terminates parental rights for reasons of abuse and/or neglect of said minor, which then allows the minor to be made a "ward of the state", not emancipated.
