No. There is no "automatic emancipation" it must be done through the established court procedures. Texas does have laws which allow a minor to file a petition of emancipation. The legal age of majority for the state is 18. Sorry that should have read "does" rather than "does not" however there are counties in the state that require the minor to file said petition with the Texas Supreme Court rather than a district court. Two of those counties are McLennan and Hood, there are probably others. Texas does have a procedure for petitioning for emancipation (called 'removal of disabilities of minority'). Check Texas Family Code, chapter 31 for information.
