In unique situations, the law may allow a Texas child to be emancipated from his or her parents. Under certain circumstances, a Texas court will grant legal emancipation for a 16- or 17-year-old who can prove that he or she is financially self-supporting and has cause to be emancipated.
The laws governing emancipation in Texas are very specific, so a 16- or 17-year-old who is seeking emancipation should seek the services of a qualified attorney with experience handling Texas emancipation issues. The lawyers at McCleskey, Harriger, Brazill & Graf have the skills and experience to assist teenagers or their families in every phase of emancipation.
