How can i at age 17 get emancipated? What are the requirements?

Asked 10 months ago - Ellsworth, IA

I am 17 years old and I have a job, I also have someone that offered for me to live with them but I need to be emancipated to do so. I can't stand living at home with my mom who stays over at her boyfriends all the time and treats his son more like a son than she treats me. She also won't let me visit family or go to friends houses very often.
