Kerrville family law firm
Adopting a child can be one of the most rewarding experiences a person can have. However, the adoption process can also be frustrating and overwhelming. With decades of experience, our Houston family lawyers can sensitively guide you through the adoption process and can think outside the box if the case proves challenging.
In Texas, many adoptions are made by stepparents. Stepparent adoptions require a slightly different process, beginning with termination of parental rights of the biological parent who does not have custody. If the biological parent cannot easily be located, we can work hard to serve the parent papers about the impending adoption. If the child is over 12 years old, he or she must approve of the adoption and also must attend counseling about adoption.
Because of the wide scope of our work, we cannot hope to answer all the questions our potential clients might have on this page. We have included a Family Law Frequently Asked Questions page, and a Family Law Information Center to help you further. As always, the Houston Family Attorneys of Nichols Law are here to help.
