Default What age can I move out of my house in Texas . . . 17?

Im 16 years old. And was 3 months pregnant. My boyfriend is 18, and was that age when we got pregnant. My mom made us get an abortion. Or she was going to file a rape charge on the father of my baby so we went threw with the abortion. not my decision at all. If we didnt go threw with the abortion she threatened to push me down the stairs or some how make me lose my baby. So my boyfriend and i went threw with the abortion. After words we thought she would stop treating me bad and calling me rude names. My mom would treat and say things no mom should to there kids. All my friends said she was emotionally abusing me, she constantly tells me she doesnt care how i feel or what i want. being a teen mom and being forced to lose your baby really messes you up. My mom never cared to ask how i felt afterwards. She didnt let my boyfriend come see me as much as she promised he was my only support system. She lets my older sisters call me names and treat me badly. I will be 17 in two months.can i move out?

I wish to inform you that your boyfriend cannot be held liable on the charge of rape because under Title V Sec. 21.11 defense can be taken if the age difference is not more than 3 years. Further you may seek emancipation from court. As at present you are a minor thus you may not leave without your parents wishes and hence you will require emancipation from court if you intend to leave your house.
