Breaking free from Family Plan

Breaking free from Family Plan

Ok so my question has multiple parts to it. I am currently on a Family Plan and need to break free from it and get my own line. I know I can keep my number but does my mom have to come with me or call to basically give permission for my line to get dropped off the current account? Also I don't have the best credit right now, would they be understanding since I have had this phone/account for 5 years with my parents? If not, does anyone know kinda the credit score range for the dollar amount for the deposit? I would like to be prepared before going in to handle this.
