The age of majority in TX is 18, so on your NEXT birthday, your 18th birthday, you will become legally emancipated. In Texas, however, a minor can petition the court for early emancipation, but ONE of the requirements for emancipation is that you must prove that you are capable of fully supporting yourself and your child, and if you have no money then how can you do that?

How old do you have to be to decide if you live with your mother or father and how do you go about changing where you live?

If your father and mother are divorced, and if they cannot agree where you will live, the court decides where you will live. When you are eighteen years old, you may decide where you will live, unless you can convince a judge to declare you to be an emancipated minor before your eighteenth birthday. If you are declared an emancipated minor, you may decide where you will live, on your own as an adult.

In most cases the mother of the child is considered permanently emancipated as far as the child is concerned. What this means is you can tell her she cannot spend the night with the father, but not that the child cannot spend the night with the father. That is up to the mother and father of the child. If you have what you consider valid concerns about the health and safety of the child while it's with the father, you will have to take your daughter to court.
