    Most likely no, not a chance.
    You will have better results working to repair your relationship with your parents. Your circumstances are likely not much different than every other teenager who doesn't get along with their parents at that age. You will lose every argument. Give up now, do add you are told, and life will be much easier for everyone, including yourself.

    If you are being abused, neglected or some such thing, contact CPS or talk to a trusted adult. Otherwise, not much of a chance at all of you being able to leave your home.

    At 15, you cannot be emancipated at all. At 16, you can only be emancipated if you are ALREADY living outside the home.
