Private adoptions in Houston:
If adopted by a special agreement with the biological mother, I will prepare or revise the contract and legal documents, to ensure protection of their rights and prevent loopholes that cause future problems.
Adoptions by stepparents in Houston:
The formal adoption of a stepchild conveys all the rights of a parent or stepparent natural to the mother, including the decision-making, and establishes hereditary rights to the adopted. For example, in one of my cases the biological mother was suffering from cancer and helped her husband (the stepfather) in the adoption of their children, so that he retained custody when she died.
Adoptions with Child Protective Services in Houston:
If a child is under the care of Child Protective Services as a result of abuse or neglect by their biological parents, will represent grandparents, relatives or foster parents to adopt. This involves the rescission of parental custody or the parents, which is the most heinous act of family law. Even a voluntary termination must be documented and processed correctly. Terminations contentious cases require a lawyer with experience in family law litigation, to check the ineptitude of the biological parents, and that termination and adoption are for the benefit of the child.
