Adoption

An easier journey to adoptive parenthood.

Long term planning process for adoption

I will guide and support you through it from start to finish.

For parents that are unable to have a biological child of their own, being able to adopt a child can be a dream come true and a blessing. The process is lengthy and I will guide and support you through it from start to finish.

In some cases, the process to adopt a child can take several years. I will help you through the long-term planning process.

I am a compassionate adoption lawyer that understands how emotionally taxing this process can be.

Adoptive Parents

If you are considering a private adoption, it is best to discuss the terms of the agreement with me as well as the birth parents and their attorney.

Some birth parents may request to remain present in some capacity in the child’s life.

An additional agreement will need to be made between the adoptive parents and birth parents in this situation.

When you are choosing to work with an agency, I can help you with all of the paperwork, ensuring that all documents are completed properly and provide support throughout the process.

Other scenarios include:

  • Adopting a family member’s child
  • Adopting an endangered child
  • Child Protective Services involvement
  • Domestic partners
  • Special needs children

Every situation is unique. I will offer sound advice, compassion, and sincerity to ensure that the process of adopting a child is as stress-free as possible for you, the birth parents (if involved) and the child/children.

Birth Parents

If you are unable to care for your child and wish to place the child up for adoption, please contact me at my Magnolia, Texas office to discuss your options.

Termination of parental rights is not easy.

We can take the time to ensure that this is what you want to do before moving forward.

The Process

Adopting a child is a process requiring patience and taking several steps.

I will take you through each step with clear explanations.

We will double check all documents to ensure that the information is correct.

We will devise your plan together. When working with an agency, outlining your needs helps them find the right match for your preferences.

What are your goals for adopting a child? Knowing your goals will help me compose the best plan.
