Adoption Attorney

When a child’s birth parent or parents are not able to properly care for him or her due to unfitness, abandonment, death, or some other horrible circumstance, the Texas adoption system creates an opportunity for someone to step in and take on the duties of a parent.

At Plano Family Law, our adoption attorneys represent clients seeking to adopt children in a wide variety of circumstances. Whether you’re seeking an adoption after termination of parental rights, an adoption by grandparents, or a step-parent adoption, our experienced lawyer can help you negotiate this process with skill and confidence. To discuss your adoption options, contact us to schedule a consultation.

Adoption After Termination of Parental Rights

One major aspect of our adoption practice is representing grandparents, foster parents, and other caretakers seeking to adopt children out of the CPS system. It should by no means be taken for granted that the people who care for children while they are in CPS custody will be granted a request for adoption. This is a separate legal procedure from the termination of parental rights, and various parties may assert that they are suitable adoptive parents.

Private Adoption

Our firm also regularly handles private adoptions, including adoptions by stepparents, grandparents, and other individuals who have become caretakers of children. To learn more about any type of adoption under Texas law, contact us to speak with one of our knowledgeable attorneys.
