My son is 17 years old. I discovered in April that he was doing drugs, dealing drugs and a member of the Tree Top Pirus Gang, a Bloods affiliate. Due to the fact I have 3 other children and wish them no harm, I knew he could no longer stay in my home. So, I immediately got him into rehab which he spent 3 weeks. He was then transfered to a halfway house which he stayed until this past Monday. He told me he felt good about his sobriety and that he was ready for the next step and told me he was moving in with his step brother to start making it on his own. WELL.... His buddies at the halfway house told his counselor after he left that he has been using drugs again for a month now. So, I called his brother to tell him and he informed me my son was NOT living with him! He also got a huge gang related tattoo on his chest a couple of weeks ago so he is fully invested in the gang at this point. So, my child is on the streets, doing drugs, and gang-banging again. He cannot return to my home and I wish to emancipate from him. I understand that in the state of Texas that I am responsible for him financially should he get into legal trouble. Also, what length of time does it take to emancipate? He will be 18 in January. How much does it cost to emancipate? Thank you so much!
