Houston Adoption Lawyer

Whether you are seeking to adopt a child or put your child up for adoption, it is important to know your rights and obligations before, during and after the adoption process is finalized. At The Alsandor Law Firm, we provide strategic advocacy and support to clients interested in adoption. Our attorney will provide you with the information and resources you need to protect your rights.

When entering into an adoption agreement, it is important to understand how your rights and obligations will be affected now and in the future. Contact us for a consultation or case evaluation.

We are experienced in all types of adoption cases, including:

  • Stepparent adoption
  • Grandparent adoption
  • Abandoned children
  • Voluntary parental right termination
  • Addiction and danger to children
  • Neglect or child abuse
Grandparent Adoptions

Many grandparents find themselves in the situation where they need to adopt their grandchildren to ensure the health and well-being of the child. Many grandparents are faced with this difficult situation after parents abandon the child, when parents put the child at risk because of an addiction, or if the parents are physically unable to care for a child. We will take a strategic approach to protect the child's best interests and the rights of the grandparents interested in adoption. Our firm can also represent you if you are seeking to defend against a grandparent adoption.

Stepparent adoptions

After remarriage, a stepparent may become the parent to a child from a previous marriage. Stepparent adoptions are available where the biological parent is estranged or agrees to the voluntary termination of rights. An adoption will give the stepparent the right to make important decisions regarding the child's health, education and welfare. If you are a stepparent or seeking a stepparent adoption for your child, our attorney is here to help you.

Facilitation of Adoption With Adoptive Parents

In addition to family adoptions, we are also experienced in helping mothers and adoptive parents facilitate an adoption. If you are considering adoption or you have already agreed to the terms of an adoption, but want legal support to protect your rights, we encourage you to speak with us about open adoption and closed adoption options.

Client Reviews
One of the best decisions I have ever made was to hire Ms. Cheryl Alsandor. I am very please and grateful, she is by far the most knowledgeable and efficient attorney i have ever dealt with. Her knowledge to destroy an opponent in a court room is incredible. Her ability to catch them in lies and ask the questions to make them look like the idiots they are is key. If you have a serious court issue for family or custody, you need to hire Ms. Alsandor. She knows the law and can see through the opponents lies and intentioal missleading actions. The Judges are sometimes is blinded by the lies of the other side if you dont have a excellent attorney to clear the path for the judge. Ms. Alsandor will clear the path and let the judge see the truth and you will be victorious. Follow your gut and trust Ms. Alsandor. You will be glad you did, believe me. D.
Mrs. Alsandor is an excellent attorney; but most of she is a very empathetic person. This is what separated her from the other attorneys I consulted before hiring her. She helped me during one of the most diffcult times of my life. I was divorcing my wife and fighting for primary custody of my 10 year old son. I actually did not think I would be granted custody being that I am a man and the court systems usually favorite women as being the primary custodian. However after I consulted with Mrs. Alsandor she basically assured me she would do everything legally possible to assure that I was granted custody. Mrs. Alsandor was very understanding, kind and very compassionate. I felt as if she had taken my case personally and this was her fight as well. She responded to my many phone calls and emails; and there were a lot(because of my nerves) Her prices were very reasonable for the extraordinary work that she does. I recently recommend her to one of my co-workers and he noticed the very same qualities. Mrs. Alsandor was God sent. I am happy to report I did win primary custody of my son. We are doing well and we are very happy all thanks to Mrs. Alsandor. Nelson D.
My case was handled well, with professionalism and within a reasonable time frame. I would recommend Attorney Alsandor to anyone because she is straight forward and stayed within the guidelines of the law. I did not have to worry about winning my case because she had it under control. I especially like that I did not have to do a lot of work like traveling to her office and missing meetings at my office because we communicated via email, where I could sign the documents and scan and send it. Lastly, her prices where affordable and I was able to easily pay online, which again saved me time. Steven
