The Adoption Process In Texas
The adoption process involves filing a petition with the court, conducting any necessary home studies or assessments, submitting the right documentation and attending a court hearing (or hearings).
Because the law only allows children to have two parents, an adoption case might require terminating one parent’s parental rights. When that termination is involuntary (that is, the other parent doesn’t agree to give up their rights), the case can become contested, which means it has the potential to develop into a lengthy court battle. It’s important to address this and other issues at the outset to avoid surprises that can hang up your case.
