No. If you are under 18 you have to petition the court, or get married, to be emancipated.

South Carolina does not have an emancipation statute, so no, you cannot.

Emancipated means you need a place to live and a job to pay your bills and be done with your education. I doubt that si the case at 15. Contact the Child Protective service and they will have you in a foster home instead until you are old enough to be on your own. Usually you have to be 16 to apply but with abuse it can be different. Abuse has to be proven in court though.A child has to be released by the court to be considered emancipated in South Carolina. There is no particular statute that covers how to get emancipated in South Carolina. There has to be a petition from either the child or an agency that cares for that child to start the emancipation procedures.Read more in link below.

No, you are not emancipated automatically when you have a child. It does not mean one has the ability to take care of yourself. You do have certain rights as to obtaining assistance for you and your child, but you are still the responsibility of your parents until you turn 18.
