My question involves juvenile law in the State of: Texas
I know in the state of Texas if you have a place to live, good schooling, a good source of income, and a safe place to stay, by the age of 17 you can be emancipated. Right now I have a part time job, and I have two months shy of turning 17. I am planning to be emancipated from my mother, I just dont know how to go about it. I plan to move in with my long life friend who lives walking distance from my school, but I don't know if that is going to be considered a stable place to live. Also, while the court case is going on I don't know if my mother can charge them with Kidnapping charges if I stay with them before I'm fully emancipated because I do not feel safe in my home now, and especially once the court case starts. Please help.
