Tarrant County Attorney Achieving Your Adoption Quickly and Efficiently
The stepparent adoption process proceeds in an orderly fashion in most cases. I will manage all aspects of your case in order to achieve your adoption in a timely manner. I will guide you through the adoption process, explaining each step and informing you of your responsibilities.
As your lawyer, I will:
- Contact the biological parent and obtain his or her consent for the adoption. If you have lost touch with the biological parent, I can engage an investigator to locate him or her to obtain the needed release.
- Prepare and file the adoption petition
- Explain what will happen in the required social study, and provide advice regarding how to respond to the social worker’s questions
- Finalize the adoption and obtain a new birth certificate listing the name of the stepparent as the child’s father or mother
Representing Biological Fathers
I also represent biological fathers who wish to preserve or assert their parental rights. If you are committed to being a good father to your child, my firm can represent you.
