Is there any way you can separate yourself from your parents if your state does not have an emancipation statute?

The fact that the state may not have a specific law pertaining to emancipation does not mean that a petition to obtain early emancipation rights is not possible. Most states will allow a minor to file such action and rule on the case based on the individual circumstances. Contact the clerk of the court in the county in which you reside for more information.

Certainly, when you turn 18. Until then your parents are responsible for you. There is no emancipation statute to allow you to leave earlier.

In VA, a minor can petition for emancipation at 16. However, the VA emancipation statute states one of the findings necessary to order that minor is emancipated is that "the minor willingly lives separate and apart from his parents or guardian, with the consent or acquiescence of the parents or guardian" So, your parents have to agree. And you still have to meet all the other requirements for it, such as having the ability to fully support yourself. .

That means until you turn 18, you are the responsibility of your parents. And they can tell you what to do and where to live. You can't make the decision to emancipate yourself. But - if your parents agree to legally emancipate you, it can be done in court before a judge.

In VA at 16 you can petition the court for emancipation. Be aware that the VA 'emancipation of minors' statute states that the court may enter an order declaring a minor emancipated if (among other things) "the minor willingly lives separate and apart from his parents or guardian, with the consent or acquiescence of the parents or guardian"

Tennessee does not have an emancipation statute. Which means no, it isn't going to happen. And one of the standard requirements to obtain emancipation in those states that do have one is that the parents have to be notifiec.

You can find the information for emancipation. Many states do not have an emancipation statute. And they have very specific requirements. Check the laws for your state. Usually you have to appear before a judge, with your parents or guardians present after they have reviewed the paperwork.
