Adoption Attorneys in Conroe, Texas
A person in Texas may also become a parent to a child without being the biological parent, through the process of “adoption”. Both adults and children may be adopted. Frequently, there are step-parent adoptions, where a new spouse wants to adopt the child(ren) of their spouse. In order for there to be an adoption, there must first be a “termination” of one or both of the child(ren)’s biological parents. Sometimes this requires two separate lawsuits be filed; one for the termination and another for the adoption. Texas law requires certain genetic information be provided, prospective adoptive parents must complete a criminal background check, and a social study must be done of the prospective adoptive home, by an examiner appointed by the Court. Some of these requirements can be waived by a judge, but the adoption process can be complicated, expensive, and time consuming.
