Southlake private and foreign adoption lawyer

Tarrant County Family Law Attorney for Stepparent Adoptions, International Adoptions, and More

Adopting a child is a selfless and compassionate act, and it can be incredibly rewarding for adoptive parents and other members of their families. Many children in the United States and around the world are in difficult situations because they do not have relationships with parents or other family members. Those who are willing to add these children to their families provide a great service to their adoptive children and their communities. An adoption will establish a legal relationship between a parent and child, ensuring that a family can maintain strong bonds in the years and decades to come. Parents will need to complete a variety of legal requirements during the adoption process, and with the assistance of a family law attorney, they can make sure they will be able to address and resolve any issues or obstacles they may encounter.

Attorney Daniel Bacalis and the team at Daniel R. Bacalis, P.C. work to help families address family law issues in a way that protects the rights and interests of everyone involved. We provide legal help and representation in a wide variety of adoption cases. We work to make sure parents will have the resources they need as they welcome a new child into their families, and we also help address any issues that may affect the rights of children or their relationships with their adoptive and birth parents.

Experienced Legal Help in Adoption Cases

We can help families complete multiple types of adoptions, including:

  • Stepparent adoptions - When a person marries a parent with a child from a previous relationship, they may wish to formally adopt their stepchild and become the child's legal parent. In these cases, the parental rights of the other biological parent will need to be terminated, and we can assist with locating an absent parent or resolving conflicts in situations where a parent is unwilling to give up their rights.
  • International adoptions - Parents who plan to adopt a child from a foreign country will need to make sure they are following the legal requirements of a child's country of origin, as well as the applicable U.S. laws. We can help parents understand their requirements and address any immigration issues as they work to bring their adoptive child to live with them in the United States.
  • Grandparent and interfamily adoptions - If one or both of a child's parents are no longer alive, are absent, or are unable to serve in a parental role due to health issues or other concerns, grandparents or other family members may assume responsibility for the child. In these situations, family members may wish to formally adopt the child. This will provide them with the right to make the necessary decisions about how the child will be raised, while also requiring them to provide for the child's needs. We can help families determine how to proceed in these situations and address any legal issues that they may encounter.
  • Private adoptions - Parents may choose to adopt a child through an adoption agency or by entering into an agreement with one or both of the child's biological parents. We can help families complete their legal requirements in these cases, and depending on whether parents wish to have an open or closed adoption, we can help create agreements that will detail whether the biological parent(s) will have an ongoing relationship with the child.
