FAMILY LAW SERVICES – ADOPTION
When a person is considering adoption in Texas, it is most often an anticipated and joyful event. Families are looking to share their home with another young person – and children who often come from broken homes are looking for a ‘forever family.’ Deciding to open up your home and your hearts to another family member may be a simple and easy decision – working through all of the necessary adoption legal paperwork can be overwhelming.
If you are considering an adoption, there are some basic guidelines that must be met:
- The adopting parent(s) must be 21 years of age or older.
- The person(s) who are adopting must have a sound financial basis.
- They must demonstrate being mature and responsible adults.
- The completion of a home study must be done.
These are just the beginning steps in the adoption process. The accurate and timely completion of all of these steps usually requires the experience and dedication of adoption lawyers who are familiar with the legal requirements and paperwork that must be completed. Don’t attempt this on your own – seek the services of a lawyer who knows how to guide you through the adoption process!
