A minor cannot arbitrarily leave the family home and parental custody. The age of majority in Texas is 18, as is the age for compulsory education. You must either live with your parents, ve a legally appointed guardian or have been made a "ward of the state." The state does not have emancipation status, laws pertaining to the age of majority can be found in the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code, Title 5, Chapter 129.
