Might want to consider emancipation as you can support yourself. Better idea is to sit tight, and apply for college so you're not flipping burgers at McDonalds the rest of your life.
In MA and most states, you are not "emancipated" meaning free from the legal responsibilities of your parents and an adult with all the legal rights of an adult until your turn eighteen (18) years old. With that said, this question is in Avvo under "Sex crime". Your question says nothing about any abuse, but if you or someone you know is being or has been abused sexually or otherwise, then you should get help right away and get to a safe place. Teachers, guidance counselors, school safety officers and police officers are all persons trained to help you. Reach out to one of them. However, no one should ever falsely accuse anyone of anything. If your question is simply about moving out and is in the wrong category here, then the idea here you should take away is that rights, such as the right to live where you choose, come with responsibilities. You have a job at 16 and hopefully are in school and doing well. You appear articulate and resourceful, but there is a lot more to being on your own than you could ever know at 16. Enjoy your. Senior year. You have the rest of your life to take on all the responsibilities of being an adult.
