Assisting You With Adoption And Termination

As a parent, it can be painful to see the sadness your child feels when one parent has abandoned them. But as you and your child move forward, there are legal options to consider.

Your child deserves a parent with his or her best interest at heart. If your son or daughter has a parent who is not in his or her life, it may be time to take legal action to protect your child from future harm.

Some families take the step of terminating the rights of a parent who is not involved in their child's life. This removes the right of that parent to legally have a part in any decisions regarding the child, such as medical, educational or religious.

This legal measure also paves the way for a stepparent or family member adoption, speeding up the process so you and your child can focus on the future.

Experienced Adoption Attorneys

Without termination of parental rights, the other parent must consent to the stepparent adoption. It can be complicated, so it's best to get an experienced adoption attorney who is well-versed in handling these cases in Texas. We know there is an emotional piece to it as well. This step signifies a great deal to the child and your family.
