Texas recognizes only two parents for any child and therefore, if any parent of the child to be adopted are alive there must be a termination of that parent’s rights in order for another person to adopt the child. This kind of adoption typically takes place in situations in which a stepparent or a relative who has had care, custody and control of the child wishes to go forward with an adoption.
North Texas Family Law attorney Dave Bunger applies his experience assisting his clients with step-parent adoptions and with adoptions by clients related to the child such as older siblings, aunts, uncles and cousins, Mr. Bunger will take the time to explain the legal and emotional ramifications of an adoption and its permanency. He will carefully explain the adoption process and what obstacles that may be presented during the adoption.
