    Your mother can not just go to court and have you emancipated because she's impatient to have you gone.

    Emancipation isn't even for minors who are frustrated with their parents.

    It's meant for minors who, through no fault of their own (or through extraordinary circumstances created by their own actions, such as in many cases of child actors), have found themselves in the position of taking on all the responsibilities of adulthood - holding full time employment, paying rent, buying groceries, dealing with utility companies and other such headaches - while still encumbered by laws meant to protect minors. For example, your parents have both died in an accident and there is no legal guardian named. You get a job and completely support yourself, but because you must be 18 to legally enter into a contract, you're having a hard time getting an apartment. Or you can't get electric service turned on in your name.

    If she boots you out, contact Social Services.

    That's not what emancipation is for.

    well she picked me up unexpectedly from school and said she talked to a lawyer and they said it would be pointless to emancipate me because i turn 18 in 3 months so i pretty much just left and im staying with the lady i babysit for,

    I agree, if you had even qualified to be emancipated (which you didn't), you would either have turned 18 or would have soon.

    If your parents don't care if you stay somewhere else, then that is different.
