I have had clients arrested on warrants in the Houston airport. The arrests created problems for both the client and their traveling companions. It would be wise to hire a local criminal defense attorney to clear the warrant before your trip.

It's not clear that you have a question. However as it involves some serious issues, and this is a public site, I suggest you contact an attorney who handles criminal defense in the states where you are charged or where you have concerns and do not discuss these issues on any social media.

Q: I'm 14 and my boyfriend is 18 with parent permission in the state of Texas can we get married ?

My mom is willing to sign any paper, but would I have to get emancipated for us to get married?

Kiele Linroth Pace
Kiele Linroth Pace answered on May 5, 2020

Check out Section 2.003 of the Texas Family Code. https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/Docs/FA/htm/FA.2.htm#2.003

Marriage is legal at 18, but the human brain isn't fully developed until 25 years of age, so you would be wise to wait.
