Extremely "slim to none". Judges do not arbtrarily mandate emancipation decrees. If minor child believes they are in an abusive and/or neglectful environment they can contact Youth Emergency Service Hotline 1-800-899-KIDS(5437), Crisis Intervention Agencies Line 1-888-644-HOPE (4673), their state social services division, an adult they can trust, and so forth. If immediate danger is perceived contact the local police or 911. A minor cannot be emancipated or removed from the parental home, simply because they don't want to live there any longer or they don't like the rules, chores, etc.

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.

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.
