My question involves emancipation laws for the State of: TEXAS
I am 21 yrs. old and I live with my ex step mother who by law has no custody or relation to me anymore. My biological mother died when I was young. My father lives in Louisiana with his new wife. I have no communication with him and I have tried to get his financial information for my FAFSA form so I can obtain a Student Loan but he never respones to my requests. I need to be seen as financial independent for FAFSA and the financial aid office told me I need to obtain all the kinds of letter from counselors, police reports and I have never had a police report filled nor been to seen a Counselor. I work for the Houston Police Department as a Secretary, I have a full time job, and full medical benefits for myself. I have many bills and can not afford to put myself through college and pay my bills outright that's why I am in the need for a student loan which I can't obtain till my FAFSA form is complete but I can't complete it till I have his financial information or I am seen as Independent. I need to be emmanciapted but do not know how to do that or if it's possible. Please Help!
