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
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.
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.
