Adoption in Houston

A Family Lawyer You Can Trust


Adoption is one of the happiest processes a family can celebrate and share. It’s the end of a journey toward legally declaring a child as “yours,” while simultaneously beginning that significant chapter of parenthood in your lives. As a Houston family law attorney, we can help you throughout the adoption process.


The most common questions regarding adoption include:


  • How is a termination of parental rights related to a step-parent adoption?
  • How do grandparents or other relatives adopt a blood-related child?
  • What steps are involved in adopting a child not related to me?
  • What if the birth mother and the birth father do not agree about the adoption?
  • Who can set the terms about communications between birth parents and the child?
  • Do I need to establish paternity first, in order for a new husband to adopt my child?
