There are fewer family law matters more satisfying to our family law practice than helping families adopt. It is one of the few times when everyone can leave the courthouse happy.
The attorneys at The Law Offices of Steven M. Williams have helped many families in Decatur and other communities in and around Wise County, Texas, adopt children. We would be honored to help you and your family to do the same.
We handle all types of adoption, including:
Stepparent adoption, which occurs when a stepparent seeks to adopt the biological parent’s child. The other biological parent’s rights must first be terminated before the stepparent can adopt.
Voluntary adoption, when both biological parents of a child voluntarily relinquish their parental rights to allow for the adoption of that child by qualified adoptive parents.
Involuntary adoptions, when the state must file suit to terminate the parental rights of the biological parents.
Adult adoption, which allows parents to adopt an adult, so long as the adult and the adoptive parents agree.
You do not have to be married in order to adopt a child in Texas. Our attorneys offer affordable representation to all types of families, including members of the LGBT community. We provide a full range of family law services.
