Me and my mother relationship is very toxic i can not live with her and I want to be able to live on my own and get a job
You can read the Texas Family Code which is available on-line for free.
Look under "removal of disabilities" which is what Texas called emancipation.
At 16, you can apply but it does not mean it will be accepted. You must be able to fully support yourself without the help of anyone else.
It's also very expensive. Expect to pay between $5,000-$10,000. It still does not mean the judge will grant it.
Being emancipated does not mean that a company will hire you or rent to you. It merely means that you are able to sign a legally binding contract and you can be sued if you don't fulfill your part of the contract.
You might talk to your Dad and see if he wants custody of you. Or, see if there is another relative that will get legal custody of you until the moment you turn 18. At 18, you can move and you are an adult in the eyes of the State of Texas.
Good luck!See question
I received papers today for "petition in suit affecting the parent-child relationship" from my daughter's father. The paper says I have been sued and I need to file a written answer with the district clerk who issued this citation. What do I write...
I recommend hiring a lawyer. Look on this website and find someone in your area.
The best free Texas website is www.texaslawhelp.org. It has lots of info on it.
They should have a sample answer on the website.
You can also look at the Harris County law library - they have a website too.
There is a 5 volume set of books called "Texas Family Law Practice Manual" that might help you.
On November 28th 2016 my son called the cops and told them that I had hit him with a pan and punch him in the face and spit his lip. I believe it's because I informed him that if he did not keep his grades up we would move back to Louisiana becaus...
I'm sure CPS has prepared a list of things you need to do to regain custody. You need to do the things required.
It appears that your "boss" is not an attorney. If your boss is giving you legal advice and is not an attorney, then he/she might be practicing law without a license in the State of Texas which might be a felony crime.
If your boss is not an attorney, then their opinion is worth zero.
You have an attorney so talk to your attorney and do what they advice.
I never tell people to listen to friends or family since they are not in CPS court and they don't understand the laws of the State of Texas.
If you were arrested for child abuse or endangerment, you are not getting the child back until your final trial AND CPS feels that you should have custody.See question

I am looking for good lawyers who accept flat fee for divorce. I am willing to split 50/50 property and child custody. She doesn't want divorce. She will refuse to sign divorce papers. Is a flat fee lawyer possible in this situation?
I'd look on this website and call around.
The 50/50 property split is presumed the minimum she will get. In fact, she could be entitled to more!
Texas presumes joint custody is best for the kids. What truly matters is the right to attend extra-curricular activities, phone the call when not with you and the parental rights and duties.
Most family law attorneys won't do flat-rate cases. Why? Because we have all been burned by trying to do flat-rate cases. They tend to be the most demanding clients that don't want to pay for quality work - but they expect 100% dedication.
There are a few but then you get what you pay for - usually not much! If you get a flat-rate attorney for say around $3,000 then don't expect the attorney to actively work your case or even talk to you via email or phone. You will probably just deal with a person in the office - maybe not even a paralegal.
Of course, if you pay a flat-rate of $20,000 then you will get a lot more attention.
It's like my dentist - I pay for what I need. I don't want a flat-rate dentist that charges me for the folks with bad teeth. Why should I pay for people with bad teeth when my teeth are great and don't require a lot of work?See question
I plan to get married at the JP on april. 7th and I wanted to make sure I'm following the laws and rules. I have a standard custody agreement.
If a new person is moving into the home where your kid lives, you need to notify the other parent if there is an outstanding protective order for or again him/her or if the person is a registered sex offender.
Since the other parent will eventually learn that a new person has moved in (since kid's talk) I would let the other parent know soon. If you want the kid to be at the wedding, you need to make arrangements to have access to the kid.
With social media, odds are the other parent will eventually learn about it. So you might as well tell the other parent.
I have no idea what you mean by a "standard custody agreement". There are too many variations of Texas custody agreements to make any assumptions.
If you have questions then take your paperwork to an attorney to review.See question
My friend just found out she's pregnant. Hasn't told her parents yet but is 16 years old. She feels they will make her abort the baby like they did before. But to be sure I'd like to know whether her parents can force her to abort the baby or not.
this matter was litigated in the 308th court a few years ago. The judge did not make the child have an abortion.See question

They were married when he gave her the money. It is "presumed" community property. So he needs to hire an attorney to attempt to get a judge to make her give him the money. However, the judge might not do so.
Of course, most attorneys cost a lot more than $800 so it might not be a good "investment" is spending thousands trying to get $800 back.
