Does a 17-year-old need parental consent to be emancipated in Texas?

*The information I found about child emancipation in Texas says

that the child requesting emancipation must be able to show that

they are 16-years-old, living separately from their parents, and

that they are self-supporting and managing their own affairs. The

information also says that parental consent and court action is

involved in the process. To read this information yourself, go to

the link on the right that says, "Parental Consent." *Check the

laws of the state that you reside in. There are some states that

require that the minor's parents agree to the emancipation. And,

you still have to meet the additional requirements, such as having

the ability to support yourself.
