My advice is to fully read all the advice in this thread from previous posters and start saving up so that you can move out at 18. You can't even get a library card (in my state) without a parent until you are 18. Can you imagine trying to get a bank account or place to live?

Use your parents for free rent and save up. Rent, food, clothing, utilities, taxes, transportation (gas, car repairs, or bus fare), medical care, insurance... How will you pay for all these things?

If I can pop in with advice: don't do it.
Teenagers often have the idea that if they can get/hold a job, they're set for life- until they lose the job, find expenses go up, OR find their futures are really limited.
And this is the advice I'd offer to anyone considering the "emancipated minor" nonsense that's becoming more and more popular.
Stay with your parents, get an education- and you can look forward to a better future.

If "your friend" is moving out with a boy who is 18+ then the threat of a call to the cops should be enough to scare the guy.
