    Default Emancipation for a 17-Year-Old in Texas

    Hello; my name is Rachel and I am 23. I am writing regarding my brother who is 17 and has been living on his own paying rent, and working for almost 6 months. He turns 18 in December but need to become emancipated before that due to school registration. What steps could he take to get this expedited? Our parents refuse to enroll him unless he moves home but this is not a healthy environment for him. There is no violence from either him or them; they just are very negative and constantly put him down. I know because I lived there too; but fortunate for me graduated and waited until I was 18 to move out. What can he do?

    He can move back home. He's not going to be emancipated on the basis you have provided.

    He is under your parents legal authority and if they say come home he must come home.
