You are a minor and can not do that without their help. To move out without parental consent you have to be 18 in Florida. If there is a abuse the CPS can help you and maybe then the court will grant you early emancipation but you will most likely be 18 before that. For the other ways to move out you still need their consent; marriage, early emancipation and joining the military. Even if they give you permission to move now they are still responsible for what you do and what happens to you.

I'm 17, I now live in Fl with my older siser. I have agood job and am able to take care of myself. I'm finished with school now. My parents don't have a problem with me not living with them. The only reason I think I shuld get emancipated is because if anything ever happened to me, a doctor couldn't do anything to help me without my parents being there. With them living almost a thousand miles away, that's not very comforting. Anyone know what I would need to do? Would I need to go back to Virginia to get emancipated? If I go back would I just go to the court house to talk to someone there?
