No, pregnancy does not change the legal age for which a minor may leave parental custody, the age remains at 18. The minor can petition the court for emancipation rights, but must still meet the requirements of being financially able to care for herself and her child, which includes proof of acceptable income, an established residence, clothing, food, medical care and so forth.

Answer: Legally, no not unless you have a parents permission. Even if you did have a parents permission you really don't have say so in where you live.

You must be 18 without parental permission.

The parents are still responsible for them. Without their permission they will have to wait until they are 18 in Texas.

If you have the permission of the parents. Until you are an adult, 18 in Texas, your parents are responsible for you. That includes determining where you live.

You can only legally move out if the parents give you permission. Otherwise you have to wait until you are an adult at 18.

1. Get Grandparents'/Parents' Permission or 2. Get married (which will require Grandparent's/Parents' permission) or 3. She gets emancipated (which is hard to do without grandparents'/parents' permission)

Yes, you are legally able to move out of the house when you are 16 years of age.

Yes, if they have parental permission. The key here is the age of majority (adulthood) in Texas. Until they are an adult, the parents are responsible for their welfare.

Technically, no, you cannot move out without parental permission. The key here is the age of majority (adulthood) in Texas, which is 18. If they are an adult, the parents are no longer responsible.

No, not until they are 18 years old in Texas. They remain the responsibility of their parents until then.

As long as they have permission of their parents they can in Texas. Otherwise they have to wait until they are an adult.

Marriage automatically emancipates a minor, so they don't need their parents permission to move out (of course, they do need their parents permission to get married).

User Avatar

No, they cannot move without permission in Texas. Either the parents have to consent or there is a court order.

If the 17 year old has permission of the parents. They have to be 18 without permission.

If both of your parents give permission, you can get married. Without their permission you will have to wait until you are both 18.
