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?
