If you are being abused, you can call CPS and be placed in foster care. If your parents will agree and you have someone who will let you live with them, you can move out (and your parents can give someone a temporary guardianship without going through the court system). To get emancipated, you must live away from your parents and be able to financially support yourself. There are packets available through the self-help center, and you can find resources by doing an internet search for "emancipation in Nevada"
