• Guardianship and Alternatives-In Texas, a person becomes a legal adult at age 18
and is responsible for making his or her own decisions. The law requires that
organizations honor the demands of all adults that are their own guardians. In some cases,
this leads to serious medical and/or financial outcomes.
