Re: legal age to leave home in Texas
At 17 you are no longer considered a runaway.
If you provide the local police department/and/or/parent with your new address, you cannot be picked up as a missing person.
If you are under ANY court order (juvenile court, municipal court, family court etc) your residence might be restricted.
Until you are 18 you cannot sign a contract for utilities etc or an apartment lease.
