The Specifics Of Adoption In Texas
The basic fact of families is that they grow and change. Adding a child to your family should be a joyous occasion, whatever the circumstances. However, it would be naïve to say that there will not be any challenges in achieving this goal. Whatever those challenges that may be, you will not have to face them by yourself.
At Yale Law Group, PLLC, our attorneys collectively have 25 years of experience with helping families finalize adoptions. We work to build strong families, doing what we can to prepare you for the process ahead. When you are considering adoption, please contact us as soon as you can so we can lay the groundwork to obtain the most efficient resolution possible.
An adoption can run into a number of difficulties along the way. Whether you are adopting a spouse’s child or formally adopting a child under different conditions, there can be a number of obstacles in your way-primarily, termination of the biological parents’ rights. With our forward thinking, results-driven philosophy, we are proactive in ensuring your adoption is successful to the best of our abilities.
First, we will need to discuss the current legal status of the child or children in question. Once we know exactly what has happened in the past, we can better determine what will need to happen in the future. With a plan of action detailed, you and I will both know the next steps in the overall process.
Second, we will file the necessary pleadings, serve the necessary parties, and move forward with standard adoption procedure. Depending on your situation, there may be contested hearings to follow or we may be looking at an uncontested default prove up.
No matter what happens, our goal is to obtain the best outcome for your family.
