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.
