You can request Emancipation at your age, but please note you will have to prove to the Court, among other things, that you can be financially independent and support yourself. Here is a link to the Petition you will have to file with the Court: http://courts.mi.gov/Administration/SCAO/Forms/courtforms/emancipation/pc100.pdf. I wish you all the best of luck. Warmest regards on a HOT summer day, Matt Catchick.
