Adoption Attorney Serving Denton, Lewisville, Carrollton, The Colony, and Flower Mound
Adoption gives loving families the opportunity to provide a safe and caring permanent home to children living in foster care or whose expecting biological parents reach the decision that they will be unable to provide a fulfilling childhood. The adoption process can also be used to fulfill the intent of surrogacy arrangements, and to keep blood relatives out of foster care in the event that their parents become deceased or for other reasons, such as the parent are no longer able to provide adequate care.
Adoption provides a new beginning, but that new beginning does not come without significant hurdles – and sometimes roadblocks – that can prolong the process and result in missed opportunities. As a result, when considering adoption in Texas, it is best to consult with an experienced Lewisville adoption attorney who has been through the process before, and who can help you navigate the legal process.
