    I'm not familiar with them other than what information TDCJ Gives:

    WHAT IS A REPRIEVE FOR EMERGENCY MEDICAL, FAMILY, OR CIVIL COURT PROCEEDINGS?

    A reprieve is a delay or temporary suspension of punishment. Offenders who are terminally ill (six months or less to live), totally disabled, require medical treatment not available within the Texas Department of Criminal Justice-Correctional Institutions Division (TDCJ-CID) System, or who have been denied Medically Recommended Intensive Supervision (MRIS) may seek an emergency medical reprieve. Offenders also may seek a reprieve to attend civil court proceedings. As with other forms of clemency, the governor may grant the reprieve upon a written recommendation of a majority of the Board members.

    A request for a reprieve for family emergency to attend funerals or to visit critically ill relatives may be made through application to the Clemency Section. However, the more practical alternative, time-wise, is to request a special absence (furlough) from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

    APPLICATIONS FOR REPRIEVE OF EXECUTION AND COMMUTATION TO LIFE IN PRISON IN CAPITAL CASES.

    In capital cases, the Board considers an application for commutation of sentence to life in prison and for a reprieve of a scheduled execution. If a majority of the Board members make a written recommendation for clemency in a death penalty case, the governor may grant commutation or a reprieve. The length of the reprieve can be 30 days or longer, in increments of 30 days. The governor also has the power to grant a one-time thirty-day reprieve of execution in capital cases.

    Q: What is the duration period on an Emergency Medical Reprieve (EMR) or Family Medical Reprieve (FMR)?

    A: The duration of the reprieve will be determined by the governor.

    I can suspect that it is incredibly hard to get and/or obtain. I know furlongs are hard to get as well and very few are actually approved for them. Good luck!
