Q: A friend wants to move out but doesn't know if she will be forced

I have a friend who lives in omaha Ne and she plans to move out during the summer of graduation. She will be 17 (a couple months with in 18) or have turned 18 at the time of moving out. If she has a job, a place to live for free, is engaged to her boyfriend and has consent of her dad but not her mom (they have equal custody) will she be forced to move back home?

Also the mom is emotionally abusive but other than witnesses she is unable to prove it and is worried the mom will convince the judge otherwise.
