Adoption Cases in Texas
Rockwall Adoption Attorney
Adoption should be a celebratory process and a momentous occasion in your life. At the Law Offices of J. Cameron Cowan, my firm works hard to streamline the legal process of adoption and ensure that you receive the opportunity to expand your family without encountering complications. Texas laws regarding adoption and the termination of biological parents' rights can be difficult to understand, so it is recommended that you retain me as your Rockwall family law attorney prior to entering into an adoption agreement. By working with my firm, you can ensure that all necessary legal documentation is completed and processed and that you meet all requirements set forth by the adoption agency prior to adoption.
In the state of Texas you can be single, married, widowed or divorced to adopt. Straight and same-sex couples alike can adopt children. As long as you can show proof that you are able to provide for a child and are at least 21 years of age, you may be eligible to adopt a child. There are various adoption systems that you can go through, such as the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, national adoption agencies, and private adoption agencies. Some families even opt to work through an attorney with the biological parents to setup adoptions. I can help you understand the necessary legal documents as well as the differences between open and closed adoptions. When you work with the Law Offices of J. Cameron Cowan, you can be confident that your adoption case will be handled correctly.
