    New York apparently has no set procedure for the emancipation of minors. In general, you can be considered emancipated if ...

    · You are over the age of 16

    · You do not live with either of your parents (unless you live away from home only because of school, camp, college, or other temporary situation)

    · You do not receive any financial support from your parents (unless a court has ordered them to pay you support or you only receive benefits that you are entitled to, such as Social Security)

    · You have your own job as your main source of income

    It may be more practical to simply wait until you are 18 unless you can work out an arrangement with your parents to allow you to stay somewhere else.
