If you live in a state that allows emancipation, you petition the court. You are going to have to show that you have the ability to take care of yourself, including providing financially. If the court is satisfied that you wont become a ward of the state, they can issue an order of emancipation. At that point you are on your own and your parents no longer have to take care of you.
