Making The Adoption Process Stress-Free And Successful
An adoption is a joyous event in the life of a family. However, mistakes and oversight in the adoption process can add unnecessary complications, creating stress, anxiety and unnecessary delays for all parties involved.
At The Barrera Firm, our lawyers can provide you with the legal guidance you need to ensure a smooth adoption process. We are proven legal advocates for families in San Antonio and throughout surrounding Texas communities.
The Termination Of Parental Rights
Generally, before an adoption can take place, the parental rights of the biological parents must be terminated. This is typically a fairly straightforward process, provided the biological parents cooperate. In a contested adoption, however, the issues become more complex. Whether your adoption is resolved by agreement, or due to the decision of a judge, we are here to make the process successful for you. We have extensive experience guiding clients through the adoption process and the termination of parental rights in Texas.
One of the most common types of adoptions is the stepparent adoption, in which a parent legally adopts the biological child of his or her spouse. Our attorneys understand the nuances of adopting a stepchild in Texas and are here to make the law work for you.
As a full-service family law firm, we can also handle any other issues you may face, including child custody, child support and divorce.
