Houston Adoption Lawyer
Handling All Aspects of Adoption Law
There are few experiences as fulfilling as welcoming a child into your
family through the process of adoption. Despite the joy and excitement
that couples and individuals feel in anticipation of being united with
their child, however, the actual process can be arduous, long, and frustrating.
Almost every situation ends up having unexpected complications that extend
the adoption by months, if not years. These circumstances can become even
more challenging if there are any changes made by biological family members
of the child, whether by a mother who is giving up her infant right after
it has been born, or by the parents of a child who is being guarded by
Child Protective Services.
When you are trying to gain the full parental rights and custody of the
child you desire to adopt, having a Houston adoption lawyer is the optimal
way of navigating through the difficult journey.

Kinds of Adoption Cases We Handle
One of the reasons why it is so crucial to have an attorney who is specifically
devoted to family law is because there are so many kinds of adoptive cases.
Depending on the circumstances, your case might require completely different
strategies to ensure that your legal rights are protected.
Our knowledgeable lawyer is very familiar with supporting cases dealing
with all kinds of situations, including scenarios that involve:
- Adoptions of infants
- Open adoptions
- Closed adoptions
- Adoptions of children in different countries
- Adoptions of family members or stepchildren
- Adoptions of adults
The Length of the Adoption Process in Texas
The most common question that adoptive parents tend to ask is how long
the arduous process will take. This question is unfortunately difficult
to answer, since many different variables affect the length of time it
will take to make your adoption official. In some cases, if the scenario
is an urgent one, or if there are no complicated challenges arising from
the birth parents or previous guardians, the adoption might only take
a few months.
If a child is involved in a Child Protective Services case, potential risks
of the child’s former housing situation could mean that their adoption
is expedited so they can settle into a safe home environment. On the other
hand, if you have not yet completed a home study, or if the child is a
newborn, the process can sometimes take up to 7 years.
Determined Advocacy for Your Family
Understandably, you want your future child to join your family as soon
as possible. Waiting for several years would deprive you of precious time
to spend with them, and perhaps negatively affect your ability to nurture
them while they are younger. When you get in touch with our Houston adoption
attorney, you can rest in the knowledge that we can dedicate all of our
skill to finding out the projected timeframe and then expediting the process.
