Emancipation and Ages for Moving Out

Can a 15-year-old female get emancipated and still live with a family member?

If the 15-year-old has already been legally emancipated, they are as free as anyone else. Emancipation means that you live on your own and fully support yourself. And most states (with the exception of a very few, such as CA) would not even allow a 15-year-old to petition for emancipation. I don't think this situation is an emancipation issue--it's a custody/guardianship issue. The relative that you want to move in with would need to petition the court for custody/guardianship. And frankly, unless they can prove your parents to be unfit in some way, the chances of them winning the case are pretty slim.
