Fort Worth Law Firm Handling Stepparent Adoptions

When an individual wishes to legally adopt a new spouse's children from a previous marriage, Texas requires that he or she submit to a formal application process. This includes an interview, background investigation and appearance at a formal court hearing. Our attorneys work with our clients at every stage of the process to ensure things run smoothly; we anticipate and work to prevent any problems that may arise before an adoption is finalized.

A frequent concern that parents often have is that a child's other birth parent will not consent to an adoption by the stepparent. While consent is typically required for stepparent adoptions, courts can and do waive this requirement when certain conditions are met. If your child's other birth parent does not pay required child support, for example, or has otherwise abandoned the child, we can help you obtain waiver of this requirement to help the adoption process proceed.
