*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.
