I DO NOT need to know age of consent. This isn't a sexual situation. These are the questions I need answered:
- At what age can a child be declared emancipated in Texas and New Mexico (assuming these states have emancipation laws)
- a legal description of the process for each state, including the terms of emancipation
- the age of majority for each state, assuming emancipation does not take place
I'm trying to determine if it would be realistic for a fifteen year old member of the Navajo nation (I already looked up their laws and it states they defer to the state standard regarding these issues) to be emancipated in New Mexico and if she would be considered a minor in the state of Texas regardless of emancipation status (that's for story purposes, not necessarily based on reality).
