How long does the emancipated process usually take?

Full Question:

I'm 17 and my parents and I have had nasty fights on my "rights" for about 2 years. I have a job, a car, and a place to live. I believe all would be happier if I lived on my own. My parents have even suggested it, but when I brought it up to them they denied it. I turn 18 in December. Should I try and wait until my birthday or try for emancipation?

You probably won't get a decision much before your birthday, possibly later, so it made be wasted effort and expense. I suggest calling the clerk of courts for a time frame.
