My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.
Texas law allows for the emancipation of minors in certain circumstances. Any minor petitioning a Texas court for emancipation -- that is, being declared an adult in the eyes of the law -- must be a Texas resident, 17 years old (or 16 and living apart from one's parents), and able to support and manage one's own affairs.
The minor seeking emancipation will have to state the following in his or her petition:
Name, age, residency of petitioner
Name and residency of parents/guardians (if still living), or managing conservator (if applicable)
Reasons why emancipation serves the best interests of the petitioning minor
Purpose for the request.
So you would actually have to move out (as well as thr other rrquirements listed) and then file a petition with the court with the facts I also outlined. I would think about retaining an attorney to help you with the process.
Please let me know if you have any further questions and please positively rate my answer as it is the only way I will be compensated for my time by the site.
