Surrogate Parent Agreements

Adoption is a loving act done for many reasons. Having an experienced adoption attorney can all but eliminate the problems heard about in news stories. I am Board Certified in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and am committed to helping people build family bonds through adoption.

Experienced Fort Worth Adoption Attorney

At Daniel Bacalis, P.C., I am committed to helping create a smooth transition for people throughout Dallas, Fort Worth and North Texas trying to build families through adoption. I have extensive experience handling a wide variety of adoptions including:

  • Stepparent adoptions
  • Interfamily adoptions
  • Grandparent adoptions
  • Private adoptions
  • Foreign adoptions

Each type of adoption has its own challenges. My experience handling several types of adoption has increased my ability to foresee potential issues.

A Skilled Domestic Adoptions Lawyer

I have extensive experience handling stepparent adoptions related to divorce. Most often the hardest parts of a stepparent adoption is either convincing the biological mother or father to terminate his or her parental rights, or locating the absent parent. I have helped numerous clients post notices in publications of a pending adoption as well as getting parents to relinquish their parental rights. I have also handled interfamily adoptions involving siblings, aunts and uncles, and grandparents.

Foreign Adoptions Lawyer

As foreign adoptions continue to increase, I have helped a number of families formalize their foreign adoptions in the United States. This is not a complex process. When a foreign adoption is Americanized, or approved by the Texas courts, the child is issued a Texas birth certificate. This can prevent significant immigration problems as the child grows up.
