Probably. The legal age of majority is 18 but apparently Texas police won't generally force a 17-year-old to move back in with their parents. If you leave home without parental consent, then anyone who takes you in--even if they are a relative--can be facing charges for doing so. Texas does have laws against harboring a runaway. There could possibly be other charges as well.
Yes, a grandparent, or another relative, can apply for guardianship if the parents' rights have been terminated or with the consent of the parents.
A babysitting grandparent cannot be considered "in loco parentis." The grandparent is simply helping out the parents for a short time; the parents have not transferred any parental responsibilities over to the grandparent.
Your third cousins are those relatives who share a great-great-grandparent with you. They are the children of your parents' second cousins and the grand children of your grandparents' first cousins.
Parents parent, hope this helped you!! :)
A fraternal parent is your fathers parents.
Your aunt-in-law's parents would be your grandparent-in-laws.
The maternal grandparents are the parents of the individual's mother.
To have a black baby one of the parents needs to be black. A mixed race couple can have a black baby. It isn't unheard of for a white couple to have a black baby is they have black relatives (parent or grandparent).
The parents pay for their child.
Each state has their own laws. In NY, the parents would have to pay child support to the custodial grandparents.
One very simple thing to do is to look at your skin. Another is to ask your parents or other relatives.
