The Adoption Process in Texas

The specific process you must follow depends on the type of adoption you are pursuing. Phillip M. Herr, Attorney at Law, has experience guiding clients through all the various processes. He understands the paperwork and other requirements for each kind of adoption.

We can assist you with:

  • Stepparent adoptions: Sometimes, stepparents wish to formalize their relationship with their stepchildren by legally adopting them. Though being a stepparent gives you the right to file for adoption in Texas, it is in your best interest to retain legal representation to ensure that your case is as strong as it can be.
  • International adoptions: Adopting a child internationally is a particularly long and complex process. Mr. Herr is careful and attentive every step of the way to ensure that your case is presented appropriately.
  • Agency adoptions: In an agency adoption, prospective adoptive parents apply through an agency, which locates the birth mother and serves as a liaison between the birth parents and adoptive parents.
  • Private adoptions: A private adoption – also called an independent adoption – allows an adoptive parent to connect directly with a birth mother and/or father rather than going through an agency. Though attorneys in Texas cannot locate birth mothers for adoptive parents, Mr. Herr can help you ensure that the independent adoption is carried out lawfully.

Regardless of which type of adoption you pursue, the basic process remains the same: The birth parents’ parental rights are terminated, and the adoptive parents are appointed as the child’s managing conservators.
