Can a 17 year old girl move out of her mothers house into her grandmothers house without her mothers consent?

Asked about 2 years ago - Saint Louis, MO

My mother treats me like a slave. and acts as if im still a 8 year old child. We fight everyday, and im sick of it. I have a job. And i am great in school and also am planning on going to college. I conside myself one of the most mature 16 year olds. I just want to move out and move in with my grandmother so i can stop the fighting and arguing. Let my mother grow up, because she has mental disabilities where she is not grown in some parts of her head.
