Can parents legally force a 20-year-old out of the house in Texas?
Absolutely, the person in question is of legal age and the parent(s) can request he/she leave the residence and they do not need a specific reason for doing so. If the adult child refuses to leave voluntarily and the parent(s) so choose they can enlist the aid of law enforcement personnel. Please be advised that the young adult does have the legal right to take such personal property as belongs to her/him, including those items which were given or assumed to be given as gifts, and/or a vehicle titled in their name only. The person must be lawfully evicted, and cannot be just thrown out.
Can your parents legally make you give up your child through adoption after you have it when you are sixteen?
Eighteen year-olds have reached the age of majority and are legally considered adults under the law, so parents can not legally force an 18 year-old to take a drug test. However, the situation is complicated if the 18 year-old is still living with their parents because parents can also legally force 18 year-olds out of their house.
Your 17 and you moved out of your parents house and they forced you back home and they have been threating your boyfriend and you dont want to live with your parents what can you do to get out?
You can get emancipated legally. You can just move out if you want, and if your parents force you by law to stay with them you can challenge the law and bring it to court. But if you are ready to move out you should be able to explain it logically to your parents and they should understand. If not, you can explain it logically to the court.
I don't think so - but this is a very sensitive subject so I think you need to seek proper professional help. Also perhaps try talking to your parents if the situation allows for that. Take Care. Legally you can not force your child to give up the custody. They are the guardian of their child and not you, no matter how old they are.
No. You being pregnant has nothing to do with the statute that defines you as a legal adult at 17. You can be forced to move back in with your parents at 16, but it most likely won't be ordered since you are so close to 17, and pregnant. So legally, no you cannot move out. In practice, go ahead - I doubt any judge would force you back home.
Technically, you're not legally able to make that choice, but there is a loophole in Texas law. Officers can't force you to move back in with your parent/gardian unless your life is in danger or you're in a harmful environment. The officers may make you call and check in with your parents, and inform them of your whereabouts. But if your parent files a criminal complaint with the courts, you will be forced to. Also…

Nothing, a minor cannot force his or her parents to release them from custody. A few US states have procedures for the emancipation of minors.

You can contact the clerk of the circuit…
Even though you do not have the rights of an 18 year old. A person can move out of their parents house at the age of 17. Even if the parents call the police department, they can force you to return to your parents home. At 17 you can legally move out of your parents house and not have any legal repremands done to you.
That's like asking if parents can force their kids to clean up their room. Parents are legally responsible for the physical, emotional and spiritual well being of their children. I am unaware of any laws that would prohibit a parent from "forcing" a child to go to church. If the parents are divorced, the court MIGHT have some say in WHICH parent makes the decisions on church attendance for the child. However, the parents have…
You want to find out your daughter will turn 17 in January and she you live in Texas she wants to move to Houston with her boyfriend and her little son Is there anything you can do to stop that?
No there isn't anything that you can do to stop that. She legally became an adult when she had the child. The only thing you could try, and I'm NOT suggesting this, is to try to prove her to be an unfit parent and force her back to you. Buy legally you can't do didilly squat. No there isn't anything that you can do to stop that. She legally became an adult when she had…
Your parents are legally responsible for you until you are 18, so technically if you leave you without their knowledge you will be a runaway, and they can force you to return (if they can find you). If your parents agree to it, they can petition a court to have you "emancipated" if you are underage, but a judge would be making the final decision - needing to know that you would be financially and…
If 15 yr old girl 16 yr old boy are having baby and want to adopt out can parents of kids make them keep the baby or can the kids legally put baby up for adoption?
No. If you don't sign the papers, you can't be forced to go. The draft hasn't been in effect for thirty years. No, you can't be forced. The short answer to this question is "no." Once you have reached the age of majority, your parents are not legally responsible for you. As such, they cannot force you to do anything, including enlisting in the military.

Can a 17-year-old move out of his parents' house into another relative's house like a grandparent or aunt in Texas?
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.
