An adoption is a joyful event, once completed. The work necessary to conclude an adoption, however, can be frustrating and complicated. If you are a stepparent looking to officially adopt your stepchild, you need an experienced family law attorney to help you.

At Laura Dale & Associates, we work closely with clients to help them achieve their goals in family law matters, including all types of adoption. We communicate clearly with our clients to keep them abreast of all the developments in their adoption case. We know how important your family is to you. We will be there to help ensure that your adoption proceeds smoothly.

Lawyers Who Can Help You Build Your Family

Stepparent adoption is different from many forms of adoption in that the stepparent has generally lived with the child and the child’s parent prior to seeking the adoption. The process is really about establishing a legal relationship where a family relationship already exists.

Being a stepparent gives you standing in Texas to file for adoption. That does not mean the adoption will proceed without complications. It is vital to have a dedicated adoption lawyer on your side to maximize your chances of getting the result you want.
